Filling sandwiches that are better than expected

The food here is simple, good and affordable. All four of us were really happy with our choices. The bread is very nice and the toppings are fresh. It was helpful to have the menu in English. I would go here anytime.

We saw good reviews for this place and decided to check it out. When we arrived, it was busy and had to wait 20 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. Generous portion sizes with fresh, high quality food. We would go again.

It was last June when my brother found that place close to the canal. I remember having had a delicious bagel with avocado and salmon (I guess) We had to wait a bit long although there were not a lot of people.. The waitress was a bit slow, and careless. Yet the food was really good and we really enjoyed... More

We wouldn't have given this place a second glance if we were walking past but after reading online that it did the best sandwiches in Amsterdam, we knew we had to go. We ended up going twice - it was THAT good. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table on our first visit but I'm so glad we... More

I absolutely love Singel 404! I've been here many times and the food has always been amazing. Now every time I go to Amsterdam I cannot wait to return to this cafe. No pictures I'm sorry, food is way too good, I just want to eat it when it gets in front of me!

When i worked in Amsterdam this was my favorite "go to spot". The food is fresh, the sandwiches are full of surprising tastes. It is small, and can get quite crowded, but with a mild winter I sat out front with my mint tea and enjoyed the views.

we were very hungry and it was after 2pm on a wet December day, and this little café was conveniently where we stopped to check our map. We ate the bread with bacon, 3 eggs, cheese and tomatoes with chives. It was delicious and really satisfying. the staff were friendly and the bill affordable. We would definitely return.

We stumbled upon this little cafe whilst looking for a lunch stop and were not disappointed. Excellent value, service, ambiance and very tasty food. We had 2 glasses of House Wine each and huge platefuls of food for less than €30. Would recommend the House Rose which was divine.

Could not think of a better place to have a late breakkie. The view of the canal while you sip on a good coffee and munch on a bagel with eggs. The order is complete with oj, just enough bacon so you don't go on a guilt trip, and croissant with cheese and jam on the side of your egg... More

This small cosy cafe overlooks the Singel canal, and we love to start our mornings here every time we come to Amsterdam. The melted sandwiches are fresh and creative, The service is very friendly , and the atmosphere is homey and relaxing. If you are looking for a pit stop while roaming the center of the city, this is great... More
