This was the first cafe me and my boyfriend visited during our weekend in Amsterdam and the food was delicious! It was a little pricey, but the food itself couldn't be faulted. The only downside is that there isn't very many tables at all and as we were seated at the very back of the cafe, my chair was right... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel front desk and I was extremely impressed. Excellent selection of English meals, traditional and not, teas and drinks. I got the full English breakfast and it was so yummy. Large portions, homemade breads and the prices were fare for the quality of the food. Honestly, everything looked great and I had... More

We arrived about 9:45 and the place was already packed. We asked for a table inside and had to wait about 15 minutes. A long line quickly formed behind us. So I'd recommend to be here early. Once inside we were served quickly and the food was quick to come out. We both got the eggs Benedict and they were... More

TA guided us here but we were left quite disappointed to be honest. Firstly the place is tiny and they have rammed in as many tables as is physically possible. The issue with this is you cannot get into sit down, unless you don't mind someone's backside being rammed in your breakfast. Secondly the waiter sat us down, then 5... More

Excellent food. Very small place but staff is friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend the salad with goat cheese. My husband had the chicken club. Finished meal with a beautiful carrot cake.

Best English breakfast in amsterdam 100%. Searched high and low for a good English breakfast. Been to amsterdam a few times and ive got to say this is most definitely the place to go! Not badly priced too for the standard of the food.

I made my way to Greenwoods based on a TripAdvisor search, as it appeared many other travelers who arrived both before and after me did. The line to get inside was full of mostly English speakers, but smatterings of other European languages could be heard as those in the queue waited for a table. I arrived at approximately 12:30 on...

We were almost tempted to go elsewhere when we saw a queue outside, but I'm so glad we didn't. The queue went really quickly, we sat outside which was lovely and the food was divine! Thoroughly recommend eggs benedict with avocado!

The Keizersgracht kocation was popular from day 1 and remains a popular destination for tourists and locals. We go for the fresh pastry, good service and convienient location. Stairs are a bit challenging if you don't have a good sense of balance

Thank Juboi

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.
