Horrible Experience !! I spent with my family yesterday afternoon in this Cafe. Next to a lousy service they served us Mixed Fingerfood. It took a few hours later to get me back in my hotel feeling really sick and being up all night having the worst experience of my life till. I had to call the hotel doctor which... More

Loved being able to sit outside on the nice day reading the books I had just bought. Staff were friendly, prices were ok and the area was great to sit and watch.

Rich and moist and the cream on the top was not too sweet. I also had a hamburger and perhaps should have found a Burger King instead. The coffee was really inspiring and they didn't use fresh milk. Service was ok. Great location though!

Staff was inexperienced and maybe too busy. Our waitress was maybe on her first day of work. We ordered an Italian wrap (really bad!) and a Quinoa salad which we never got to taste because they brought us a different one... On the plus side, the salad we've been given was very good. All in all, I wouldn't recommend the... More

I visited this cafe on the square beside the American book shop and perused my purchases over a lovely supper. The outside seating was very popular but I took a seat inside and enjoyed the music. I was not in a hurry so I found the service friendly and un intrusive. Nice vibe at night.good example of cafe bar that... More

It was fun sitting outside, but the coffee was stingy by Amsterdam standards, the carrot cake was rich, but mediocre and I've never had so much trouble paying for food. The waiters looked the other way when I tried to get their attention. Even my usually sure-fire trick of pretending to try to leave without paying did not work. I... More

Sunday morning, I ordered Royal Breakfast. Apparently the waitress misunderstood and brought a cheaper breakfast with extras. When the bill came she charged me the breakfast which she brought, charging the extras! I actually did not get what I ordered, didn't want to cause an inconvenience by sending it back and was charged for it extra! Otherwise location was nice,... More
