Fresh and nice lunch

Visited with my parents... Read some good reviews about Gartine and thought giving it a try, for lunch. We had the sourdough sandwiches, one with egg salad and the other with ham of lamb, and a soup of the day, all to share coz we weren't too hungry. Sourdough bread tasted fresh and very tasty... read more

We had a wonderful high tea at this charming and elegant café. As recommended, we booked a table and, when we arrived, we were delighted by the quirky decor and the sweetly mis-matched chintzy china. We had an enormous pot of tea, refilled upon request, accompanied by delicious savoury and sweet treats. Everything is home made, often using produce from... More

Gartine is a lovely little cafe which serves delicious food. We had breakfast here and were very lucky to get a table. The food was delicious, fresh and simple with excellent flavour. We were 5 of us and got to taste what the other had ordered :) The pancakes and scrambled eggs stood out for me. A must visit! Make... More

Although it looked as delicious as we had imagined, our error was not reserving...sadly it was packed, however we wanted to thank the charming waitress who took the time to suggest to us several others good spot to eat and we were totally chuffed with her recommendation. Based on how friendly and helpful she was we can only endorse all... More

Gartine is an old French word for garden. The owners grow their own produce on a patch of ground just outside the city, and much of it is served in the café - think, fresh and seasonal; lovely flavours, great quality produce, and imaginative dishes. A genteel kind of atmosphere, with a huge chandelier and a scattering of Frenchified antiques.... More

We have had the classic high tea shortly before we leave Amsterdam in the early afternoon and it was incredible! It's basically a tea of your choice (that they refill for you for free) and a selection of salted pastries made with pickings from onsite kitchen garden! Then comes the sweet pastries plate with cheesecakes, muffins, chocolate... All home made... More

We were lucky to have breakfast here on saturday, we had the last available table! I took the complete breakfast and it was amazing! Freshly made egg, the cheese, the jams! I recommend this place also for the kindness of the staff. For sure we will came again! Thanks for the wonderful experience

This is a favourite place of mine to meet friends or colleagues for lunch. It is a tiny cafe tucked into a narrow side street in the middle of amsterdam. The menu is simple, tasty and with an emphasis on organic and local.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
