I took a seat in the sitting area to quickly read the review of this cafe on everything to know about Amsterdam. While looking at the reviews for about 1 minute few seconds, this rude waitress comes and ask me to order something, I said please give me a minute just going through something quick will go and order it, in return she says I don't think you will so please leave. I was shocked and to my disbelief I showed her my phone so she could see herself what I was doing , still she went and said you can stand a read the review please don't sit here when most of the chairs were empty and the cafe hardly had any customers. We'll no surprises there. She shouldn't be in this job if all she does is treats her customers like piece of dirt. If now I think about it Reviews were actually good, I would have gone and ordered stuff, only because of her rude and shocking behaviour the cafe lost a potential customer. It's shameful.

Popped into this joint for a quick pint on St Patricks day 2014, one pint Strongbow and One Guiness came to an eye peeling 16.50 Euros, way way above anywhere else near the place, got the definately impression we were targetted and ripped off, for a place thats come as far as Amsterdam has this place let it down badly, not recommended at all...

This cafe is placed on the edge of the red light district, and on a canal. It is great to sit and watch the canal life and also people watching! The coffee isn't too bad a price, and one of the few cafes near there with a toilet (you have to ask for the key). The alcohol is quite dear though. Nice view. Have been here a few times over the years, for the view and toliet!
