Perfect spot to take a seat for a few beers and bitterballen. We already had a booking for a restaurant but otherwise would have definitely stayed on for dinner. Burgers looked delicious. Lovely vibe on a Saturday afternoon.

We visited here both mornings we were in Amsterdam and were happy with the food we received. We ended up staying for hours, ordering cup after cup of hot chocolates, coffees, juices and teas. The staff were friendly, although a little disorganised and not very...More

Great place to have some drinks or food. The menu offers affordable dishes. Hospitable friendly staff. Cosy interior. We came in for drinks, but, tempted by the atmosphere and menu on the wall ordered some food as well.

A real gem of a place - welcoming, cosy atmosphere and very friendly and attentive staff. Food was absolutely delicious; it was cooked to perfection and had a real home made feel about it. Would thoroughly recommend.

Came for a late-ish glass of wine - was a quiet evening, lovely atmosphere and decor, nice service, good wine, good prices! Great spot for looking out at the pretty streets - imagine in the summer the outside area must get very busy and fun!

Ate breakfast here twice during our stay in Amsterdam, both times coffee was delicious - really happy with it! The breakfasts were sufficient, weird sort of dried ham and eggs and lots of bread, but it fills your belly better than croissants. Warm and comfortable...More

Had some lunch here last week, a club sanwhich with smoked chicken and avocado and some chips. The Sandwhich was delicious and well prepped, only the toast was a bit hard... (Old bread maybe?). The cafe is located on the canal belt, right in 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
