I love a good breakfast! There’s something about having a good breakfast to start off the day. I wish some of them were open a bit earlier, but these are my top picks for a fantastic breakfast in the Hague depending on what you’re looking for…
I finally visited Kaafi recently and this super modern coffee/breakfast spot run by an American guy has fantastic customer service. The coffee is absolutely fantastic and I strongly recommend getting the pastries if you’re looking something sweet. The breakfast choices as pretty well-sized and hearty with high-quality bread from a local bakery. Simply, I’m looking forward to getting through the menu, even if it means being basic and ordering an avocado toast.
For a basic and tasty breakfast in the Hague, consider heading to SamSam. Their base breakfast is pretty healthy (and reasonable). You can choose from
It’s taken me a long time to finally visit Yoghurt Barn, but it’s a great spot for an affordable and healthy (ish) breakfast in the Hague if you’re a yogurt lover. I’ve avoided it as someone who is lactose-intolerant,
brooklyn bagel house
Can you talk about breakfast without mentioning bagels? I shall not discuss the name of a certain popular breakfast chain, but Brooklyn Bagel House is the real deal run by a real New Yorker. Although a bagel with smear (cream cheese) is an instant classic, I’d recommend also trying out the more complicated sandwiches. I personally love the BLT bagel and you might want to come earlier to get your favorite bagel before it sells out!
haley’s comet club
Haley’s Comet Club is a great throwback to the ’80s and a cozy cafe in the Zeeheldenkwartier without pretence. The owner is incredibly sweet and the service here is a lot better than many of the neighboring restaurants. I loved the birthday pancakes, which were a fun take on American pancakes. I happen to like filtered coffee, which reminded me of home, so I was pleased with the affordable price for refills.
I was a bit put off by the “instagrammable pancakes,” but coffeelicious surprised me with high-quality pancakes and creativity. You’ll find it next to the Escher Museum and although the wait isn’t ideal on weekends, it’s perfect for those looking for breakfast with a bit more polish.
For an organic breakfast in the Hague, head to Pistache for some fantastic waffles. Although their breakfast menu is a bit more limited compared to the lunch menu, I love their chocolate waffle. The aesthetic inside is absolutely gorgeous although finding a seat on a weekend can be a bit of a struggle sometimes.
For a proper British breakfast, come to Scally’s. Although they have two locations, I often go to the location in Chinatown for maximal kitsch and fantastic portions. There’s nothing like a hearty helping of beans on the side of your eggs and bacon. As they write on the menu, they’re not stingy and I promise, you’ll leave stuffed. The scones are good for sharing although a bit pricey.
One of my favorite breakfast spots in the Hague is definitively Cafe Blossom, which is close to the Peace Palace. Few places have done American pancakes so perfectly and you might find the portion sizes generous! I have worked my way through their menu and I must say that I haven’t found a bad dish on the menu yet. Get here earlier on a weekend to avoid the lunch rush!
My husband’s favorite breakfast place in the Hague has to be Club Vers for their healthy offerings. This healthy cafe has a very creative menu that often changes although I generally have gotten the healthy pancakes when coming here. It’s incredibly vegan-friendly, so I’d recommend this for a post-workout breakfast if you’re close to Den Haag HS! (They’re open pretty early on the weekends.)
Ted’s is one of my favorite places for a bit of a splurge. Their Nutella pancakes are to-die-for and I love coming here for a lazy breakfast to start the weekend off. The coffee is good and I find that there’s never too much of a line.
One of my favorite Saturday routines from the Hague involves having a lazy morning prior to getting a late breakfast then heading to the Haagse Markt for fruits/vegetables. I have recently become obsessed with potato borek and I often pick one up from one of the Turkish bakeries inside. I recommend going down the first aisle near the fruit to buy American muffins. You can get five muffins for two euros, which is a steal given how delicious they are!
