Cafe George is a small collection of restaurants based on the concept of “A French Brasserie in New York…in Amsterdam”. Each branch has its own look and feel and a slightly different menu (this is no chain) but they are hugely reliable and popular and have expanded outwards from Amsterdam to Laren and Zandvoort (see George No 5). The atmosphere is reminiscent of Soho House without the membership. Food-wise expect Bistro comfort stalwarts: eggs benny, club sandwiches, steak frites, lobster rolls, chicken on the spit, burgers and ceasar salads. Head there for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or just while away a few hours with a newspaper and a spot of people watching.
