We read about this cafe in the Independant as a recommended place to eat in Amsterdam, after getting a bit lost we did actually stumble across it by accident one morning, we ordered off menu, which wasnt any problem at all and the food was delicious and very reasonable

Thank SOS17

I live in Australia where they just don't 'do' bacon properly so I was delighted when I ordered the BLAT and the bacon was crispy and delightful. Had to wait ten mins but they serve you quickly. Menu is pretty much just sandwiches...either open or closed... But they are a generous size. Slightly off the beaten track but not a tourist to be seen... Except me that is... Great VFM. Think is was 25 euro or so for a couple of sandwiches and a couple of drinks...

Singel 404 is a little hidden gem in Amsterdam! When you finally find it there's usually a line, but before you turn around trust me it's worth the wait! My little tip for you is to show up before 11am or after 2pm otherwise if you have a group of 3 or more the place is jam packed full and it makes it more difficult to get a table upstairs. Trust me, you want a table upstairs! Since there isn't a waiting area, all the customers just start lining up in the middle of the cafe meaning that you'll probably have people staring and commenting at your wonderful delicious plate. Upstairs is more relaxed, quiet, and gives you peace to really enjoy your company and your meal.

Why is it so full? Firstly, the quality and price makes it a hit! At around 6,00 Euro for a full plate of fresh food makes it hard deal to beat in Amsterdam. Besides, the Dutch are known for loving a good deal so if you see them waiting in line then you should too!

The service is reasonable given it looks like a few university girls trying to service an over-crowded cafe, but they we're very friendly and punctual, which is an absolute relief in Amsterdam.

If you're wondering what we ate, it was a table for 3 enjoying #44 (Brie, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Avacado, etc sandwhich) and 2 of the #46 (bacon, cheese, tomato, chicken, etc sandwhich) accompanied with 2 large freshly squeezed orange juices, 2 cappuccinos, 1 fruit milkshake, and 1 tea, all for 34 Euros!

A really lovely brunch, more than just a toasted sandwich, lots of tasty taste combinations. Brunch with a quirk. Worth an investigation, especially if you are hungry:-)

I saw the reviews on TA and decided to give this place a try. First time, waited over 30 minutes, no table, grew inpatient and left. Second time, walked in, sat down and had an enjoyable experience with friendly staff and good food. Locals come here so the food is good and so is the price value.

Thank Michael C
