Good location, nice and warm, nice local beer very smooth. Good burger but very rare so ask for well done and tuna salad on Italian bread. Reasonable cost for Amsterdam not the best meal we have had

My friends and I had lunch at the Caffee Esprit two weeks ago. We ordered two burgers and one salad and three drinks. Which seems to be a simple order. However, whereas the burgers were served after 15 minutes, the salad did not. After 10...More

What a terrible cafe. The manager clearly has no knowledge of the hospitality industry. From what I have received, there is no collegiality, customer-friendliness and hygiene. That this tent is still open .. They even allow cats in their kitchen

A good spot for a quick drink, we had a carrot cake there, it was quite good, busy place, I wouldn't go there for a meal as it's not really a typical, nice or authentic restaurant, it's just ok.

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.
