“Medium Food Quality, long waiting time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

We went to Cafe Schilders to have a small lunch with a group of friends. The place is really good located in De Pijp. Lovely decor and atmosphere. The waiter approched us immediately to take our drink order. After 5 minutes he came back to take our lunch order. From there it took them 40 minutes to bring us a Club Sandwich and two soups.
Overall good place to be.

“relax in an easy going café and feast on grilled chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

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.

“good and simple food as it is mend to be in a nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

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

“Friendly Service, food is slow to come but tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

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.

“Stoped in for a mid afternoon drink - Good spot for watching the crowds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012 via mobile

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.
