9x Restaurants in the Emma District

Besides a selection of trendy stores and of course, the Design Academy Eindhoven, the area around the Emmasingel has all kinds of places to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Can't choose where to go? Check out these nine restaurants in the Emma District!


A cup of coffee is a great way to start your morning! The following coffee bars also serve as breakfast spots!

If you cross the street between the Philips Museum and de Witte Dame you can't help but make a pit stop at DENF. For your to-go order, we would like to recommend a croissant and a coconut cappuccino. Want to stick around for a bit? Then opt for one of the sandwiches. 

Doppio Espresso
One of the newest (breakfast) spots at the Nieuwe Emmasingel is Doppio. This Italian espresso bar is perfect for an extensive breakfast. Ciabatta, focaccia, and all kinds of pastries; there’s enough to choose from!

ZwartWit Koffie
Officially, everything in and around the Victoria park does not really belong to the Emma District, but let’s change it up for a bit. The idea of a coffee bar may have been born on the other side of the world, but the elaboration is located in Eindhoven. Now ZwartWit Koffie is a real must-visit for a cup of coffee and a breakfast snack. 

Breakfast, lunch of dinner? The Emma District is the place to go!


From sandwiches to summer salads, we always have the following addresses on top of our minds when it comes to having lunch. 

Happiness Café 
Something that will certainly make you happy during lunch is the Happiness Café. The menu of this healthy hotspot is filled with salad bowls, pancakes, and flatbreads. In addition to your lunch, trying a baked good from their bakery is almost an obligation (hello banana bread!). Is this place jam-packed? Then you today is your lucky day. On the Nieuwstraat you'll find their second location!

Krok Madam
Tosti, croque madame, or toasted sandwich', whatever you want to call it, for this specialty you have to go to Krok Madam. Besides the classics with melted cheese, they also serve more than ten different varieties of this delicacy. 

Sissy Boy Daily
On the first floor of the BLOB, you will find yourself in an oasis of clothing, home accessories, and more. Need a break from shopping? Then let the escalator take you upstairs to Sissy Boy Daily. Here, they prepare fresh lunches including a different soup, salad, or sandwich every day. Or just order them all. 

The Emma District also has nice spots for a delicious dinner!
