Located a block from the hotel, we both enjoy the pastries, light meals, and location of the cafe. Great location to plan & start the day as well as just relaxing after a day of sight seeing. Would visit again Check out their web site

The few things we remember of our trip to Amsterdam is the cafe van Daele and its perfect service. We ordered some beer and cheese and had a good time. Sorry again for breaking the candle!

Went here for a late breakfast the day after arriving in amsterdam. While the food was good, the service on the day we went was horrible. It was impossible to get the waiter's attention for anything we needed (including the bill when we were done!).

It wasn't so much that I have been to this place before (but who knows, I may have since I have now been to Amsterdam three times), but sitting out the front, with a coffee, watching some people who had obviously not been to sleep the night before, nursing a beer and making the occasional small talk, did bring back...

Wrote a review of the Cafe Van Daele last year expressing the hope that I would be able to return with my eldest son at some point in the future. Managed to get back to Van Daele after some 14 or so years on 30th and 31st March and 1st April last with both sons and my wife. Loved it... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
