Music Venue
“There is a lot to see and do in Amsterdam, all depending on your taste. If we were in the neighborhood, you could run into us and other locals at Roest. If the weather is nice, nothing beats Amsterdam Roest (5-10 min walk) at Jacob Bontiusplaats. At an old factory location, Roest has a pseudo beach area, a rough edged arty atmosphere and plenty of cold drinks.”

Breakfast Spot
“B&R is a New Zealand style café served with a heavy dose of Brazil. It’s our piece of home away from home (and home is along way away). The open kitchen produces all your favourite brunch dishes, fresh fruit salads, and kiwi-twisted baked goods all day long. All our cakes are made in-house and our Ozone coffee is always served as doubles.”
