Sustainable House Boats
Want to escape the busy city life and enjoy some vega(n) food? Head over to the circular paradise called De Ceuvel in Amsterdam North! This sustainable project looks like a secluded mini village of house boats where you can find creative workspaces, a cultural centre, a floating hotel and a cafe-restaurant. You can sit on the terrace at the water in seats made of old boats or seclude yourself on a raft. And in summer time you can even take a refreshing dive in the old shipyard!
Green Canteen: A vega(n) haven in Noord
Only a 5-minute bike ride away from the Ijplein ferry, the Green Canteen is located in one of the less explored parts of the North of Amsterdam. Surrounded by warehouses and houses alike, the area is a more residential version of its cooler Northern sibling, NDSM. Extra points for the location, because it’s right opposite the Oedipus brewery! Only one of the coolest breweries in Amsterdam. Green Canteen is humble and true, serving only vegan and vegetarian options. The interior of the eatery is small and intimate, with a simple décor, just a few tables and an open kitchen. There’s also a terrace with a couple of tables, in case you want to grab that afternoon sun.
