The best sandwich

Located 1/2 block from our wonderful hotel, The Esteria, this is the place for breakfast and lunch. We ate there 3 times. Order the grilled chicken sandwich - enough for two people to share; The hot apple pie is amazing!!!! Enjoy

This small cafe is full of locals and visitors - it does great breakfasts and the service is quick and friendly. The food is fresh and tasty and the portions are very generous. The omelettes were particularly good. The window seats are perfect for watching the world go by.

Lovely food, good value. Service is quick and efficient. It is a quiet and unassuming little cafe on the corner near the Estherea Hotel and attracts locals and visitors alike.

My girlfriend and I visited this place twice for lunch during our 3 day visit to Amsterdam. It is the perfect place for simple lunch.The portions are big and service is swift but not not rushed. I had the Broodje Bert burger once - which is grilled patties on a lovely piece of bread and lots of salad.The portions here... More

Simple, no nonsense, tasty eats. Had the ernie breakfast special which was fantastic. Fresh squeezed OJ was very good. Located near Singel canal with several tables.

This is a sandwich shop on the corner. Bert will set out some tables and chairs by the canal if the weather is nice. Breakfast of ham/cheese croissant with coffee was only 5 euro and it was fast. Great place for quick bite.

If you want something swanky then this isn't for you... There aren't really tables (there are outside) more of a breakfast bar. Full of locals getting their lunch which is always a good sign. The food is excellent! We had a chicken burger, which was actually flattened chicken breasts in fresh bread full of lovely fresh salad, so big neither... More

We shared a sandwich, which was enough as they are quite large and it came with a nice salad. You order inside and they bring it out to you. We sat across the street overlooking the canal enjoying the sights. Great way to start a stay in Amsterdam.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
