Lof der Zoetheid is an absolute must, both because of the delicious sweets (and much more!) and the inspiring mother-daughter duo that has put this unique spot in Noord on the map. Take your scone to the park on the roof of the Hofbogen – the ‘Luchtpark’ – and enjoy the picnic vibe in the bustling city centre. If you’re curious by nature, you should visit the Kruiskade! It’s the gathering place for many international cuisines, but mainly the place to be for an unpolished piece of Rotterdam where commonplace is the exception.
