Peperwortel Traiteur & Catering is a family owned business by brother and sister Bart and Elianne Fresen. Located at the corner of the Overtoom and the Tweede Constantijn Huygensstraat it has gained a large fan base since it’s opening in 1995 and is a well known name in the Amsterdam area. During the summer months – June, July and August – a second Peperwortel can also be found near the Open Air Theatre in the Vondelpark.


From 12pm till 9pm you can enjoy lunch, freshly prepared meals, tapas, desserts and quiches to eat on our outside benches or to take away. We cook every kind of food that we love ourselves, from Mediterranean and Asian to Mexican but for example also different kinds of Dutch ‘stamppot’ in the winter. We use lots of fresh herbs and only the best ingredients. In addition we have chosen a wide range of French, Italian and Spanish wines. For lunch we serve a variety of sandwiches next to our hot meals, and you can also come in for a freshly made juice or coffee.


We provide catering for all sorts of events and for every budget. Both cold and warm lunches, buffets, complete dinners, receptions, weddings and other events for businesses and individuals. Chances are good that you’ve tasted our food somewhere in Amsterdam as we cater for a lot of venues, for instance: the Rijksmuseum, Hortus Botanicus, Desmet Studios, Beurs van Berlage and many theatre productions.
