Amsterdam has many parks and people love to chill, play and eat in them during the summer months. You can go the your local supermarket and get in plastic covered food that isn’t always of the best quality, or you can enjoy a traditional picnic! We’ve selected our favourites!
If you want plenty of choice, you should order your picnic basket here. You can choose from Tapas, I love Amsterdam, High Tea, Mediterranean or Dutch snacks. On the side you can order cava, beer, wine or rosé. They serve the food in big picnic baskets and bring it to you. They also deliver for large groups so its perfect for a work related thing! www.picniccompany.nl
Located just around the corner of the famous Vondelpark, the owner of Saus West was clever enough to fill up the gap if you don’t have an outside terrace. Most restaurants just hope for some rain and clouds, but during summer they offer filled traditional picnic baskets, including bubbles, for in the Vondelpark! Nice fact: they include a blanket plus trash bag so you can deposit the remains in there and keep the park clean. www.sauswest.nl
This cute little spot serves breakfast and lunch but also offers costumers a picnic box to take away. You can pick from 2 options; The classic box or the luxe box. The boxes include a selection of cheese and meats, fresh fruit, greek salad, a oven baked baguette and soft drinks for €17,- The Luxe Box includes wine/cava, fresh OJ, Tuna salad and a quiche for €27,- per person. www.piqniq.nl
If you want to enjoy some afterwork drinks with colleagues in the park, you should try the Borrelplank catering. No after work drink is complete without the traditional snacks. That said, the lady behind this concept is creating a more tastier version of what you may have in mind. Fresh dips, fish, crispy vegetables, crunchy bread and homemade samosa’s. You pay €10,- per person and you can order from 6 people. Yes, it’s not cheap, but it will taste damn good! www.borrelplankamsterdam.com
Nothing beats a good take-away pizza right? First of all, they are located next to several parks in Amsterdam, so you are always good. Secondly, they offer stone oven pizza’s which are tasty AF! Bring a bottle of rosé and call your friends. This is going to be a good picnic. www.depizzabakkers.nl
Located next to the Westerpark is the small café and shop that belongs to Conscious Hotel Westerpark. It was especially designed for those that want to take out and enjoy the sunshine in the park. They sell fresh coffee, bread and sweets and healthy drinks such as coconut water or kombucha. www.consciouscafe.com
Okok, they are not a real picnic service, but they offer some of the best food delivery options throughout Amsterdam in our opinion. Above all, they have plenty of choice and always near where you are! Just bring your own blanket and cutlery and never forget to leave the park with trash. www.ubereats.com
