Ever since I had pancakes for breakfast at the Ontbijtbar I have the craving for pancakes in the morning every now and then. They are the perfect treat on days when you need a comforting start of your day. But, and this is kind of a big but, I am trying not to eat sugar at my breakfast (and lunch and dinner) because I was experiencing severe drops in my blood sugar dring the day when I ate sugar in every meal or snack. By taking less sugar, this went away almost completely. So regular pancakes for breakfast were not an option. Lees verder
I love waking up in the morning every day, because I know the first thing I get to do is having breakfast. It is something I can’t do without and I make a feast out of it every morning, no matter how early it is. But today I had to skip my breakfast. Very strange for me, but for a good cause, because I had planned a visit to the Ontbijtbar in Rotterdam. I heard so many positive things about this breakfast place near Rotterdam Central Station, that I decided to make a stop there before I went to visit the Markthal.
The Ontbijtbar serves traditional breakfast dishes: oatmeal, granola, eggs benedict, pancakes and sandwiches. All of these dishes are homemade with the nicest ingredients. Of course you can get coffee, tea, milk and juices as well. Their opening hours on weekdays are from 7.00 to 15.00. So really only for breakfast or lunch.
I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting places to go to and through Instagram, I discovered Smaakatelier Zoet & Zout in the Pannenkoekstraat in Rotterdam. I had read about their lunches and high teas and then I knew I wanted to visit it sometime. So when my grandmother wanted to do a high tea for her birthday and didn’t do this because she turned out to do a barbecue instead (which was a true succes as well!), I knew just what to give her for her birthday. A high tea at Zoet & Zout. But not the regular one at around 15.00 o’clock, but a Breakfast High Tea. I thought this was a creative twist to the concept and was curious to find out what it would be like.
