49 IJDok, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1013

Serves meat, vegan options available. Dutch-owned chain of lunchroom offering a menu inspired not by American-style bagels but the tastes and herbs of Southern France. Offers vegetarian and vegan bagels, sweets, coffees and fresh juices - made largely with fair-trade and organic ingredients. Could replace cream cheese with hummus for most menu items, has vegan tuna from der Vegetarische Slager clearly advertised on a separate page in the menu. Free Wi-Fi and views over the river. Open Mon-Sat 7:00am-6:00pm, Sun 8:30am-6:00pm.

Top bagel - Edit

I had the hummus and sun dried tomato with rocket on sesame bagel. Just the right amount of filling (which you add yourself) and as a brunch before visiting Anne Frank's hiding place, this was perfect. Cool little joint. :)

Pros: Trendy place, Good location, Tasty vegan options

Cons: Not disabled friendly (toilet downstairs)

Design your own bagels - Edit

As the poster below me has noted, more vegan items have bee added recently, and now al of the bagels themselves are vegan. My favourite aspect is how easy it is to customise toppings here - although there's an official menu, it's generally possible to mix-and-match, but vegans need to ask for this themselves, it won't be offered. It's also nice to find a sweet bagel option without milk - I can recommend banana with maple syrup. This is one of the quieter Bagels and Beans so it's a bit easier to get a seat, making the short walk away from the city centre worth it if you are looking for a cheaper option in Amsterdam or to get away from the touristy spots.

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: not fully veg

Better & better for vegans - Edit

We've been coming here since 2014 as it's perfectly located just opposite the Room Mate Aitana Hotel in amazing IJdok. Excellent vegan choice bagel toppings. In 2015 they replaced the vegan tuna with a vegan chicken teriyaki bagel and introduced a fully meat free range of vegetarian and vegan bagel burgers, all of which are pretty amazing and great value at €6 to €9. This is perfect place for a healthy breakfast in Amsterdam. There are actually 25-30 Bagels & Beans around the city.

Pros: vegan choice, great coffee , delicious food

Cons: some meat is sold

Fresh and Inspiring - Edit

An extremely impressive modern and minimalist bagel bar designed to match the ultra cool surroundings of the IJDok area of Amsterdam. Located directly opposite the main entrance of the Room Mate Aitana hotel. All food here is mostly organic and freshly prepared. The vegan/vegetarian combinations are notable and indeed delicious. They also have ingredients from the Vegetarian Butcher clearly itemised in the menu. The soy chai latte is a clear winner on the hot drinks front. Views across the river are gorgeous overlooking Noord Amsterdam, free wifi and lovely wooden furniture make this a very pleasurable experience indeed. Expect to pay in the region of €5-€7 per bagel but you will not be disappointed.

Pros: modern, friendly staff, great views
