Got here after a recommendation we got at a shop - so we had no expectations, but oh my, it was good. The food is just excellent and so delicious. Everything is home made, even the bread. Prices are fine - not cheap but not expensive at all. And the best part? The staff. So nice, so cheerful and very... More

Goat cheese quiche was out of this world. Very good sandwiches and other take a way choices. Off the beaten path like so many Amsterdam finds. A few tables inside as well as outside. Friendly and helpful staff.

If you need to stop for a bite in the Haarlemmerdijk neighbourhood, try the excellent Small World, in one of the little street reaching to the Jordaan. You can seat in front or at the corner and enjoy one of the delicious dish freshly daily prepared by the charming staff. I personally prefer the meatloaf or the fish croquettes. Both... More

This place is just great. Super kind staff and fresh juices and brilliant sandwiches. If you're lucky and the sun is out, you can sit outside. Inside it's small but cozy. Also they do amazing catering, have ordered food for dinners that we hosted for 20 to 40 people and it's always well prepared, tasty and more than enough!

Run by an owner who manages this place with great charm and good cheer. He employs primarily Aussies and Americans and the style of food is a reflection of the staff. I like to go there for lunch. You may have to wait: the place is small, heavily frequented. Take a delicious freshly-made juice while you wait.

Staff are super friendly and Sean & Clarence (owners) are an incredible wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Their cookbook "Love Your Lunch" is a must buy!

Small world catering Its on a corner and you could pass it almost without seeing this great small lunch room. Actually it is more than a lunch room as they also do catering and take away. The place is tiny but still inviting and cozy. The staff is really nice, patient and helpful. This makes you feel welcome and adds... More

This is the first time I leave a review for a lunch-room in my home city, and that's because these guys truly deserve all the praise in the world. The place is small and cosy, serving original sandwiches, drinks, and great coffee too. Not to mention the best lemon tart I ever tasted in - and believe me, I had... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
