Stumbled across this place whilst having a wander around, liked the look of it and so decided to have a light lunch there. We ordered our food and all was great... until we noticed a little mouse scurrying around! It seemed to emerge from a...More

Right in the middle of a shopping district, this cafe is inviting and cozy with two levels and lots of straightforward food. I tried the hutspot, a traditional dish reminiscent of mashed potatoes with a big sausagy-meatball and gravy. Pretty good! Try to sit on...More

We stopped here on a sightseeing day trip to get some shelter from a impending rain storm. We were served quickly and we ordered a plain pancake to share and two coffees as we weren't planning on staying too long. The servers did give us...More

In the quieter Nieuwendijk street parallel to Damrak. Small and nicely decorated. Service good and food really nice. Just the place for a light lunch. Good selection of panninis, salads, pizzas and broodes. Big open window at front to enjoy the crowd going by.

Everytime we come to Amsterdam this is the place we go to for breakfast 😊 the food and staff are exceptional! The lady who works there, owner/Manager? Always recognises us! Look forward to seeing you next year!

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
