Second time in Amsterdam, and it was definitely on my to do list to come here for breakfast again. Not disappointed and every bit as good as I remembered. This place is a must for breakfast or brunch when in Amsterdam.

Service was exceptional, we sent there on a Saturday with a group of 7. We couldn't reserve a table up front but we're there on time for the opening at 9am. Got served with drinks before the restaurant opened! Food is very good, nice size...of portion and very nice flair to it. Definitely understand why the restaurant is so highly ranked! 100% recommendation!More

Greenwood’s Singel was an absolute delight in a rainy day in Amsterdam. It’s quaint decor, local aesthetic (as it is located just of the Singel canal), and personable hospitality made it a place we will definitely visit again! Oh…and the food! FIVE STARS! We had...the eggs royale breakfast and it was everything and more. Definitely give this place a visit when you’re visiting in Amsterdam.More

Arrived to be told to wait by the sign, cool... then after 10minutes we decided to ask was there a table inside as the terreace looked full, while sipping her drink she told us inside was closed so I had to ask her how long...would a table on the terrace would be.. she said maybe 20 minutes... First thing you should teach your staff to do is communicate with the people, the first impressions of your restaurant is my last!!More

I went here my first morning in Amsterdam and ended up going back every morning. Had the breakfast stack and full breakfast alternately. The breakfast is quality, worth the money plus the pot of English breakfast for two (but really for one) is the best...tea in Amsterdam. I also bought cookies to go and they were quality too. If I had to pick fault one of the mornings I felt super rushed as the waiter told someone waiting I would be 5 minutes more before I left. I paid for extra tea so I could enjoy a cup after my breakfast but that wasn’t a huge deal, he was just trying to do his job just was a bit off. Regardless he was a great waiter along with the waitresses too. I really did enjoy this place and I will go again next time I’m in Amsterdam.More

Best first: We had the luck to sit outside with sight on the canal. The service was nice, but that is something I would expect from every restaurant. The eggs benedict were okay, but the Rösti was a little bit too dominant. Unfortunately the vegan...breakfast was a flop. The egg-like tofu was served cold and way too mushy. The vegan sausage and the "bacon" were fried quite to long, so there was no taste left. Well, at least the beans were great. Tipp: less fried stuff, more fresh vegetables or fruit.More

Good location, right on the water front, with canal side tables. Friendly staff, really good food and coffee. Unfortuanely a little pricey but worth it in my experience.
