Nice place. Crughettini and the tomato soup were good. Goat cheese sandwich a bit greasy perhaps. Good service.

The coffee is exceptional and the food very tasty. We were fortunate to have a nice server and the sunniest day that AMS had all month. The only issue we encountered were the wasps outdoors who were as attracted to our food as we were....More

Tried to eat here with my husband but the servers never spoke to us. Sat for 10 minutes while other couples who came in after us were served. Walked out. Wouldn't recommend.

I ordered a spiralised courgette salad - which came absolutely raw and dry - with no dressing on it and a tiny ketchup bowl of beetroot sauce. This was not sufficient to moisten the raw vegetables, never mind create a tasty dish - so I...More

Stopped here for lunch. We wanted somewhere we could sit outside so this place fit the bill perfectly. Good, reasonably priced food, good service and cold beer! A winner.

The cafe has a nice, friendly and relaxed vibe - much like the staff there albeit they are a bit slow and unperceptive (i.e. our table was not cleaned before we sat down). The menu was a bit short on options for how 'vegan'/'raw'/'vegetarian' the...More

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

Caffe Esprit is located in the historic heart of Amsterdam. This unique venue is characterised by its central location and its panoramic views over the whole of the Spui. Caffe Esprit is visited by a very varied public: shoppers, business people and students have long known where to find Caffe Esprit. Caffe Esprit has long been known for its extensive menu of delicious club sandwiches, pastas, burgers and salads. The splendid home-made carrot cake and cheesecake have for years attracted a large clientele. In the summer months, the sun-drenched terrace is a delightful spot for enjoying our spendid lunches, a good glass of wine and a small glass of refreshing cold beer with finger food.
