Secret affordable breakfast spots in Rotterdam!

The best affordable breakfast spots in Rotterdam

As I’ve lived in Rotterdam for the past four months, I have come to realization that the range of hidden hotspots are endless. Whether it is in terms of bars, clubs, shops, landmarks or restaurants. The main reason that I wanted to become the lifestyle blogger of Credo Magazine was my love for this city. I love going out to finding new places that haven’t had the buzz just yet, and bringing them to Credo for students to discover and enjoy. This time it’s time for breakfast!

Discovering the eating spots that Rotterdam has to offer has been incredibly entertaining. I wanted to turn my discoveries into a helpful article for students – as we’re all on a similar boat financial wise. We’re students, meaning our budget is limited (for us mostly), and we have to make the most out of it. 

What we do not think about is the daily money we spend on our spar croissants and sushi bowls can be properly spent on a meal even MORE delicious and just as affordable – even cheaper believe it or not. 

I have collated 4 affordable, and let me say- really delicious eating hotspots that are shockingly suitable for a student budget! It is pretty surprising because all of these places have shocked me- quality and price wise.

No need to babble any longer.

Hope you enjoy these few places!
