Between us we tried the proffertjes with strawberries & cream and an apple & cinnamon pancake. Everything was delicious but my favourite were the proffertjes. The service was friendly and the venue cosy.

Best place to go during a windy day in Amsterdam. The hot chocolate was amazing, the pancake (ordered both sweet and salty) was okay. Homey atmosphere. Great service and ultra friendly staff.
