Delicious sandwiches and more

Consistently delicious. Recommend carrot cake too. Friendly staff. Very small inside and terrace so so not expect to eat in in comfort.

Small world opened more than ten years ago when I was lucky enough to live around the corner. After moving abroad It is still the place for an informal high quality lunch whenever I'm back in town. The menu consists of 'restaurant quality dishes' on a sandwich. Beatifully compiled, and always delivering on highest quality levels. Great juices and coffee... More

If I go back to Amsterdam I'll 100% go back to small world catering. Grabbed a carrot cake for a make shift birthday cake and wish I could do the same next year!

Small World Catering is one of those small neighbourhood restaurants that delights you every time you visit. It's tiny, so we usually take out both the lovely breads (our favourites are the avocado-based ones) and fresh juices, but on sunny days it's nice to sit on the side street and watch Amsterdam life pass by while enjoying the food.

This tiny little cafe was recommended by the gal we rented our canal-side house from; right down the street, in fact. Sean, the owner, was very friendly, accommodating, and seemed to know everyone who came in. Started off getting a coffee and cookie, but ended up with dinner and dessert to take back to the house for a relaxing night... More

We know this place since opening 15 years ago. It's one of our weekend chill out hang outs with great sandwiches and shakes. Also great for catering and pies and cakes.

A nice selection of cold and warm sandwiches and fresh juices served with a smile from the friendly staff. So good that we had to come back the next day.

I had a stupendously delicious slice of heaven in the form of carrot cake here yesterday. Oh. My. WORD. Words cannot describe. Carrot cake has always been my favorite, even as a child. Of all the carrot cakes I've had, this one takes the cake (haha, get it?!). It is so filling and rich, so even better: you get TWO... More

My taste buds are very pleased with me right now. You must get the fish cake sandwich! The owner also makes the atmosphere, with his quick wit and hospitable nature. I will defiantly be returning, cause I'm hooked! 😊

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.
