Rotterdam Faves: By Jarmusch, all day breakfast heaven

An American style diner, serving all-day breakfast. It sounded as if all my wishes had come true, and something similar to my beloved Breakfast Bar had returned! In truth, By Jarmusch fulfills all my wishes, and more! Open early, great coffee and stellar breakfast dishes such as eggs specials and mouth-watering pancakes. I may not yet be a regular, but By Jarmusch has been a Rotterdam Fave since my first visit.

Menu items at By Jarmusch

By Jarmusch is primarily a breakfast diner, their focus is on breakfast dishes including different types of eggs, served with any type of side you like, healthy bowls, and delicious stacked pancakes and waffles. Are classic breakfast dishes not your preference? They also serve subs, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. I was happily surprised to see they have a long beverage list as well, with everything you would expect…but they also serve breakfast cocktails (I’m a mimosa type of woman) and beer and wine to have with your lunch specials.

Because everything seemed so delicious the last time I visited, I tried two dishes. Between friends, we shared an egg dish with bacon, avocado, and hash browns, cherry waffles and chocolate chip pancakes. The egg dish was good, the hash browns not too greasy and served with tasty relish. However, for me, the stars of this diner are definitely the waffles and pancakes! The chocolate chip pancakes were served with extra chocolate chips and butter and were soft, airy and deliciously sweet. Accompanied by a strong black coffee, sunshine and the company of good friends, it made for the perfect breakfast moment. That moment was fortified when we tried the cherry waffles, which were equally delicious, without the cherries being overbearingly sweet.

By Jarmusch’s atmosphere

By Jarmusch is located in the Industrie building on the Goudse Singel, one of Rotterdam’s newest locations of all things trendy. The building suits the diner interior well, with the industrial interior complimenting the red diner chairs and black and white artwork and floors. The servers wear classic diner like uniforms in black, which I have to admit, adds to the atmosphere and I found quite fun! All servers I’ve had there were very friendly and helpful – something which can be rare in the Netherlands.
