Picknick is a lovely place for having lunch or breakfast. It’s in the centre of Rotterdam and it’s easy to find. The place doesn’t look like a normal lunchroom. They are also selling marvellous jam and sweet cakes. It’s just such a lovely place you must have breakfast or lunch over there when you’re visiting Rotterdam!
Sweet pink cakes
A friend of mine celebrated her birthday and she served some sweet pink cakes. I loved them, they were fabulous. When I ate them I made the ‘mmmm, yummie’ sound. Trust me, you can’t eat them without making those sounds! The pink cakes were suited in a wooden box with the name ‘Picknick’ on it. Believe me, I memorized that name. In the past my friend told me of this shop. Now that I tasted their sweet pink cakes I was even more curious about it. When I got home I searched for the address on the Internet. I found their website and it is really funny. It gives you the picknick feeling. You should have a look too!
Fresh juices and lovely bread
Last weekend I went to Picknick. Let me share this experience with you! At the front you could sit outside on a nice couch. And at the backside you could sit at picknick tables. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that good, so we ate inside. When we entered the place I immediately saw the sweet pink cakes on the counter. Yep, this is the right place! We sat down at a small table and I looked around. Wow, this is an inspiring place, it looks a bit vintage and I love that kind of style. When you have been to Berlin you know what I mean. In Berlin there are a lot of these places and I think it’s great we now also get more and more of them in Rotterdam!
A nice girl handed us the menu. Normally I know exactly what I want but this time it was hard. They serve a lot of things that I like but I had to make a choice of course. So I choose fresh juice, fresh mint tea, a croissant with ham and cheese and raisin bread with cream butter. The food was served on a wooden board and it tasted very good! I will definitely come here more often! And I’m sure you will also become a picknick addict very soon too!
