Amazing breakfast two days in a row! Massive portions, excellent coffee and lovely service even when really busy! Smoked salmon and eggs on homemade soda bread is absolutely gorgeous! Highly recommend this place but super busy so suggest you get there early! You may have to queue for a while but well worth it....

Thank Rory F

This place was recommended us by our friends who live in Amsterdam. Greenwoods has a high quality of food, good menu and quick service. Place itself is small and cozy, which makes it rather crowdy, so book a table beforehand not to wait in a line outside. Everything we've tried was tasty and well served. But I would recommend rethinking the balance between ingredients in Eggs Royale or use a less salty smoked salmon, cause I had a feeling there was too much of it. Anyway, it is not a critical issue.
Last five minutes of our breakfast was spoiled by waiters who asked us three times in a row if we would like to have something else, after that they came with a bill and said "thanks". I understand this place wants to serve all the guests waiting outside, but we just wanted to finish our meal without a hurry. I think this was not polite.

Thank you so much for your review! We take every review very seriously and each one is discussed at our weekly management meeting. I have spoken personally with the management team at Singel regarding your comment about the waitress service towards the end of your visit. We take customer service extremely seriously and we pride ourselves in high standards. I would like to apologise for how we made you feel. We do not want to rush anybody even though the pace is very quick and we often deal with a large queue throughout the day, service has to be slick. We are training a lot of new staff at the moment for summer and this is one of the first things that we make sure to train them in when the meal is complete: 'How was everything?, would you like anything else?'. In your case, this was over kill and as was discussed with the management team, it was down to the communication on our part. That will be improved and it won't happen again. We really hope to see you back again soon. Thanks again for your constructive feedback, Jen :)

Made reservation for Greenwood’s in Amsterdam while traveling, although a reservation is not needed if you arrive at opening. They fill up quickly, even on the week days (we went on a Wednesday.) Words cannot describe how amazing their vegetarian breakfast options are. I got the yoghurt bowl, a healthier option with Greek yogurt, fresh homemade granola, and assorted fruits. My daughter got the veggie, a huge plate with eggs, home style potatoes, avocado, mushrooms, cheese, and baked beans. She loved it so much that she wants to return to Amsterdam just to come here! They also offer suggestions to make your meal vegan, if you wish. The staff were extremely friendly and prompt as well.

Wow! Another good find for my wife. Short wait. Quite cost inside. Dining outside as well. The three Olof us had the veggie but with some variations. Nice that these establishments cater for gluten free etc. Food and service really good
