Its my neighbourhood cafe - great choice of drinks and beer on tap, friendly and very effective staff. Great food, great terrace. Can be a bit loud but very nice atmosphere. Worth a visit, especially on Saturday when there is a fun and lively market...More

This very quickly became our local. We went 6 times while there for 8 days. It's got a great atmosphere and the staff are all very friendly (and speak English very well). Being winter the warmth was also awesome! The drinks are well priced and...More

Great food and prices in a beautiful area of the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. Lots of lovely veggie options, and the service is excellent too. Really nice place to stop.

My wife and I came here for drinks for 2 nights out of our 3 night break. We come to this bar every year as it is so good. It is in the best location in Amsterdam, has excellent service, excellent music and great atmosphere.

The breakfast and the beer here was nice and reasonably priced for the area. But it's all about the atmosphere. The cafe is beautifully located on a leafy corner in the north of Jordaan. The interior is beautifully preserved (or rather distressed as it's not...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow

quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
