80% plant based 20% animal products

The Meets: Healthy and wholesome
The Meets is a cosy little eatery with a light and retro interior, a small terrace outside on the Cornelis Troostplein square and a super friendly staff that makes you instantly feel at home. The menu is a beautiful collection of healthy, colorful and original dishes. The best part of The Meets is that everything is hand made every day from fresh, local and biological products, free from refined sugars and additives. No junkfood here! The Meets really focusses on a healthy and wholesome menu (with an exception for the sweets ☺).
The Meets’s Menu
You can enjoy The Meets’s good food for breakfast, sweets, lunch, snacks and dinner. Breakfast is served until 15:00, so no need to hurry for those spectacular ‘Blueberry Banana Pancakes’ (oatmeal, fresh fruits and mixed nuts) or ‘Matcha Green Bowl’ (matcha, avocado, spinach, almond milk and granola). If you’re more the sandwich type there’s enough choice as well, like a ‘Kim-Cheezie Toasti’ or a ‘Avocado Sweet Potato Wrap’. From 12 o’clock on it’s possible to start ordering Burgers (Mexican Veggie Burger with sweet potato, black beans, quinoa, avocado, vegan mayo), Salads (like the Spicy Ceasar Salad with avocado, chickpea croutons and Almond Parmesan) and Soups.
The Meets’s Dosa Rolls & Vegan Sweets
Snacks are served all day and a big recommendation goes out to The Meets Platter with Sweet and truffle potato chips, Farinata, Falafel, Bieterbal (vega), Hummus, Guacemole and vegan mayo. Great to pair with some wine or cava. And the polenta fries… make sure to get a portion of those as well! For dinner the best thing on the menu must be the Dosa Rolls, filled with cheesy Tofu and artichoke… Wow! Best use of tofu tasted so far. And of course you can’t leave The Meets without tasting one of their precious sweets, like the Vegan Twix, Acai Cashew Cheesecake or Avocado Lime Tart.
For the vegetarian and carnivore there are enough interesting options as well, which makes The Meets a perfect location for mixed companies. Pretty sure everyone will find an option that matches their wishes at The Meets! Check out more vegan spots in Amsterdam? Read about Meatless District, a 100% vegan and trendy restaurant.
