My family and I stayed at the nearby Renaissance Hotel for seven nights. The breakfast buffet at that hotel was way too expensive. So we came to the Corner Restaurant for breakfast every morning (seven in all) because the menu had a good variety (English breakfast, American breakfast, omelets and a variety of coffees and juices). Every morning, I ordered... More

Had a pleasant afternoon snack here - a pancake with chocolate sauce. Waitress staff are a little all over the place - some are better than others so a bit hit and miss on ordering/service etc. However, food was nice and I was not rushed. Was able to spends a nice hour or so people watching in the sun.

The food may be mediocre, but the service was excellent. I had the wienerschnitzel and it was very good, but the rest of the food didn't compare. That said, the service was incredible. The two servers and cook couldn't have done a better job. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Amsterdam.

On a busy friday night, after walking miles stopped on a whim. Fish and chips average. Mayo served from a squeeze tube. Spare ribs average and greasy. Beer as everywhere in Amsterdam. Very good. Service was very nice . One lone girl waiting all tables outside and in was charming even though overworked

I had the Omelette Royal - Mushrooms, bacon, a few fries, some salad. Really nice and very tasty. All washed down with a glass of Heineken. We had a nice window seat and enjoyed fresh air and able to watch the many pedestrians walking past the window. Really nice friendly ambience with a coolness befitting Amsterdam. My wife had the...

Needed eggs and bacon and this restaurant served that purpose. Menu was varied and reasonably priced. Food was good, service a bit iffy.

I stopped here for breakfast one morning and sat at the bar. The food was great and the waitress/bartender was lovely to talk to. I felt very comfortable there.

With an awning stating "English Breakfast", it's not hard to deduce who this restaurant caters to. Came here two of our mornings in Amsterdam, and for the most part was served mediocre breakfast standards at a slightly inflated price. The room is small and absolutely packed to the gills, so don't plan on being comfortable or staying for a while.... More

I really like this restaurant, I always go everytime I visit Amsterdam. The atmosphere is nice and the service and food is great. I tend to have a full English when I go and the food is always really good. The cafe/bar is located in a convenient position near to Centraal Station.
