Organic and tasty, a must to visit.

I visited this restaurant for breakfast. The menu was fairly small so we both chose the same items. We both chose what is basically ham, egg, cheese on bread with mushrooms and tomatoes. It comes with freshly squeezed orange juice and a choice of tea, all from the Clipper range and all organic. I... read more

We were staying in the N.H.BARBIZON PALACE and this great restaurant was a minute walk to,as we noticed the previous day that they had an interesting beer range decided to pay this establishment a visit. Light and airy interior, we were greeted warmly by the staff and shown to big window table looking out onto CENTRAAL STATION. The young lady... More

It is an interesting restaurant. We had lunch there and they serve simple sandwiches. The quality is exceptionally good, fresh ingredients and taste good. The restaurant was busy and they have a big window facing the Centraal Station. There are good looking people inside and outside the restaurant. The atmosphere was friendly. Price is also reasonable.

Had both breakfast and lunch here during our stay. French Breakfast was delicious. Goats cheese sandwich was to die for. Lovely atmosphere, staff are really friendly. Food was delicious and fresh. Highly recommended for any visit to Amsterdam.

I happened to be staying at a nearby hotel and relied on trip advisor to find a better place to eat in the vicinity. This place, located near the central train station, is a stand out. Very welcoming staff and a great place for thirty something year olds (even though I'm nearly 50 I was made to feel welcome). Very... More

This cafe is really funky inside with stained glass windows and bohemian mosaic walls. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was really relaxed - shame the service is sooo slow!

great for when you've just met people off the train - grab an outside seat in the warm weather and people watch. Great for Bock Beer too.

The cafe is centrally located, close to the train station and the main walking areas of Amsterdam. The sandwiches are excellent and the coffee is good too. Absolutely recommended for a quick lunch or breakfast.

We popped in around 2pm for a light lunch- the mint tea is delightful as was the caramel latte. We ordered the pumpkin salad and chorizo warm sandwich, which did take some time to come out (our drinks were finished) but they were quite delicious. The decoration of the place is just lovely as well
