Stopped at Caffe Esprit for a cappuccino and a brownie on a typically rainy day. The place looks larger from the outside than it really is. Be prepared to feel a bit squeezed once you are inside. The coffee and cake were standard. What killed the experience is that we were served by the most bored, uninterested, and frankly rude... More

Lovely, large omlette along with delicious corn bread. Nice view of Spui as you eat breakfast - especially on a cold , but sunny day

I wish I had read the review warning of food poisoning from a few weeks ago. I had lunch there yesterday - a salad and a bread roll. Today I am in agony with stomach cramps. It could have been another restaurant or breakfast at the hotel - but I think it was this place. The salad I received did... 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 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
