Mornings and Breakfast in Amsterdam

Every morning in Amsterdam I wake to this view.

Window view in Amsterdam

I have a lovely, enormous window right next to my bed that swings wide open and provides the perfect place to sit and write, read or dream.

It overlooks a courtyard that of late has been the scene for ping-pong tournaments for the downstairs neighbors. They are very serious about their game, switching places for each serve like pro tennis players, and we’ve had grand fun watching the spectacle.

I love mornings here.

Cool breezes come in through open windows and I hear the city wake up as neighbors creak open their own windows, construction guys start up their equipment, and bikes come rattling down the bricked and cobbled streets.

We’ve been having the most splendid breakfasts – strong coffee with the thickest, must scrumptious foam I’ve ever seen, and Holly’s (sis-in-law’s sis) fantastic breakfast sandwiches made with dark grainy bread, crispy bacon, fresh eggs, and strong cheese she brought over from Scotland.

Yep, I’m feeling thoroughly spoiled. 🙂

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast on lazy, sunny mornings?

Zita - Lazy sunny mornings (usually weekends) I love making pancakes. Like this vegan strawberry buckwheat pancake – http://bit.ly/oO2J6d. I’m glad you’re settled in Amsterdam. Any news about when to come to Budapest?

Krista - Oh, I love pancakes too, Zita! 🙂 Sometime in September is what I’m hoping for, dear friend. 🙂 I will be looking into tickets soon and will get back to you soon. 🙂

Barbara Williams - We loved Amsterdam! And yes, I remember those breakfasts. Great bread and cheese! Feeling spoiled is a good place to be, Krista!

Tonya Renee - Enjoy your time resting and getting back to health:)

Krista - Thank you, Barbara. 🙂 I love Amsterdam too – it feels unique yet homey at the same time. 🙂

Krista - Thank you, Barbara. 🙂 I love Amsterdam too – it feels unique yet homey at the same time. 🙂

Krista - Thank you, Tonya. All this rest is doing wonders for me. 🙂

Bluegreen Kirk - That looks great!  Anything with bacon has my vote.  As for me I like either white chocolate chip pancakes or strawberry stuff french toast.

Andrea and John - Would have to be bagels with cream cheese and some scrambled eggs for me =) Sounds lovely!

LindyLouMac in Italy - You deserve to be spoilt 🙂

Andi Perullo - You totally deserve to be spoiled babe!!!  I loooooooove breakfast.  Best meal of the day.

[email protected] - That breakfast sandwich is my ideal morning treat! I would spread a bit of grainy mustard on the bread (I’m weird like that… I love the combo of mustard and eggs).

Krista - I’m a huge bacon fan too, Kirk. 🙂 I’ve never had white chocolate chip pancakes, but they sound amazing!!! 🙂

Krista - Mmm, I do love toasted bagels with cream cheese, Andrea. 🙂

Krista - Thank you, dear Linda. 🙂 xo

Krista - Oooh, that sounds great, Katie! I love grainy mustard and will have to try that combo soon! 🙂

Krista - Aww, thanks, Andi! 🙂 I love breakfast too. Can’t wait for tomorrow! 🙂

Jamie - That sandwich wants to live with me. I love a yummy fluffy Belgian waffle with a side of bacon. Or vice versa.

Krista - Oh boy, Jamie, now I’m craving bacon all over again. 🙂

Anonymous - Love that cup 😉

Krista - Me too, Cailin! My brother has worked for Starbucks International for several years and has collected so many cups from his travels. 🙂
