I recently enjoyed this wonderful Brazilian lemonade, Limonada Suiça, at one of my favourite breakfast/brunch places in Amsterdam.

By using the whole lime, including its peel, you are benefiting from all the lime’s nutritional benefits. Most of the vitamin C is found, not in the juice, but in the peel. I am not a big fan of sweet lemonades but I love the distinctive bitter flavour of Limonada Suiça. Read More

I fell in love with Bakers and Roasters on my first visit and my heart has only grown fonder ever since. At Bakers and Roasters they serve wholesome, hearty dishes, clean food, excellent coffee and lovely fresh juices. The place looks healthy too.
