Gs Really Nice Brunch in Amsterdam

Who doesn’t love brunch? Well, I do. One of my favourite brunch places is Gs (www.reallyniceplace.com, still can’t believe they got that domain name). A few years ago an Instagram post with amazing food grabbed my attention, and I first visited their (back then only) brunch place in de Jordaan.

That place in de Jordaan still exists, but besides that, another brunch “bar” opened in de Pijp (open till 2AM) and Gs started operating a Brunch Boat too!

Today I went to the one in de Pijp. Gs takes reservations, but since this was more of a spontaneous idea I didn’t get to book a table. Luckily the wait was only 10 minutes before a table opened up. I acrosslike the design of this place’s tablecloths and menus:

Although Gs is famous for its Bloody Marys I decided to go alcohol-free and ordered their Gs mama’s pink lemonade, I wasn’t disappointed:

Gs Mama’s Pink Lemonade, not too sweet yet tasteful.

Next up was the main act: Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and avocado and Basic Bae (toasted sesame bagel with alaskan smoked salmon/cream cheese/capers). Next up, in this case, meant after quite a while. The service wasn’t the most rapid, but alright, the place was packed and it was weekend so chill out.

The food didn’t’ disappoint me.

The food was great as always. The items we had today were quite “mainstream”, note that they also have more alternative items such as a chicken waffle burger which I had before (really really good hangover brunch). Their full menu including prices can be found here on their website.
