This is one of those hidden gems that you just have to know about, or you'll miss it. We went there after a friend's recommendation. She was so right about the excellent grilled chicken (plus traditional apple sauce), home style french fries (with skin on) friendly staff and surpisingly good snails for starters. Mildly priced, water for free.
At walking distance from Leidseplein, yet completely away from touristic trash.

Easy going cafe with a good atmosphere to spend your evening. When I was there only three dishes could be chosen. All three of them basic but cooked perfectly. Bartender was a little slow, but that is ok in such a relaxing place

This was my first time here, and I was expecting the typical Dutch customer service (inattentive student bartenders), but the staff was really friendly. The rotisserie chicken is really tasty (it comes with fries, and you can sub them out for a small salad). Don't go there for a quick snack on the run - it takes a while for the food to come out, but if time isn't an issue and you're in De Pijp, check it out.

This place has two 5meter long picnic tables out in front and a thought through design inside. Intesting/ advanced music of classic covers and hip hop. The service staff were both nice and attentive. Nothing special on drinks menu and lunch is similar sandwiches and salads as everywhere else around.

Best bit is the location. Just 1 block from the park, in the sub at midday and an endless parade of interesting looking people walking by.
