Stopped by for breakfast on a sunny summer morning. Only a fairly limited menu which essentially consists of eggs and yoghurt, but the quality was very impressive. Great coffee as well! Nice ambience in the middle of Spui Street, just a short walk from the...More

We happened upon this cute eatery when we discovered Gartine was closed. The decor and ambiance is nice. Coffee was good and food was ok, nothing special. Service was friendly and efficient enough.

This place had a lovely atmosphere. Moved indoors when it got cold and watched the world go by through large glass windows. Liked the look of the food. Small plates for snacks, light bites. No one hurried me through my beers. Will return again.

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.
