Had lunch inside - a nice space with high ceilings and well-stocked bar, unpretentious atmosphere (which we like). Food was good and reasonably priced, nice coffee. Seemed to have a lot of local custom including a big family group.

Small menu, but the food was really good. Busy and loud, but worth a stop! I would stop there again, try the mushroom soup!

Stop by last january on our way back from a trip. We all took a piece of the famous apple pie and latté. That was delicious. We will certainly come back if we got the chance!

After entering with the nine of us a smaller group was requested to take a smaller table by the staff. Never experienced this before but probably part of the infamous 'Amsterdam service level'. Small selection of beers and lots of snogging people, strange place.

Very non-touristy respite from walking around. Great sandwiches! Service is perfect. Coffee shop ambience. House cat!

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
