Ordered a coffee but when it arrived it was cold. Send it back and the next one wasn't much warmer. Wouldn't recommend as there will be far better places to have a beer or a coffee.

Love to sit on their terrace on a nice summer day with a scroppino or a beer and some nachos and just watch people pass by. In the evening I find it gets too crowded.

We had an incredibly enjoyable few hours one evening here recently as this cafe has outside seating and catches all of the evening sun. Extremely popular too. We sampled some of the local beers as we watched the world go by. Highly recommended.

Came here 3 times when in Amsterdam! Great cocktails my favourite was strawberry daiquiri. Good music friendly staff. Give it a try

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
