A real bright spark

For decades, the area that Ruby Emma calls home was the powerhouse of Amsterdam, providing gas to heat the city's cooking stoves and coffee pots.

These days, the Amstelkwartier is a more idyllic spot, but the focus on energy remains. Inspired by the sailors who harness the wind on the Amstel's tight turns, Emma’s all about using the power of nature.

Come on in and take a look around…

Enjoy our breakfast

Our tasty, locally sourced breakfast buffet is served in the bar every morning, along with bottomless barista coffee or organic tea. Tuck in to fresh fruit and superfood cereals, along with wholegrain bread and a delicious selection of meats and cheeses. To start your day the Amsterdam way, try our local favourite: Ossenworst. This spiced, smoked beef sausage is best served with bread and lashings of mustard – delicious.

Didn't book breakfast? No problem. We'd still love to see you there. It's €24, which we'll charge to your card.
