We had lunch here on Saturday, very busy and a long wait to have order taken. Friendly people. We had tomato soup, which was delicious. Also, a chicken club which was ok. They have two floors and lots of tables.

Had a great family breakfast here, nice location, good food, friendly staff. The fresh squeezed orange juice was a nice surprise as part of the breakfast special. We were a party of seven with two kids four and under.

In the nice atmosphere of Jordaan in Amsterdam, Nielsen offers the best italian coffee we have found in Netherlands. There is also a good choice of cakes and pastries. It 's worth for breakfast or a quick lunch.

This is the place to go for good food. The goats cheese salad was to kill for. The two men who were serving were on the button. They were helpful and really looked after us.

This little spot was around the corner from our hotel on the Prinsengracht. If you have never been to Amsterdam before, most of he breakfast places do not open until 09:00-10:00...even the pastry shops open late! This cafe, open at 08:00 most days, offered a full breakfast menu, with omelets, etc. They were delicious and well made. A definite recommend.

This little restaurant has a nice breakfast menu! I had Sparky's omelette with a side of bacon and hubby opted for an order of fried eggs and bacon with cheese. The eggs were actually cooked on top of the cooked bacon, then covered with cheese. He loved it! Their cappuccinos and coffee are excellent. Nice decor too. You have a... More

Berenstraat 19, easy to find and with a good menu. Had no problem, being a veggie, which is a refreshing change. Lots of club sandwich choices, which a lot of local people go for apparently. Ciabatta sandwiches are small but the right size when filled. Options are for ciabatta or dark bread. This did look lovely. Good service, which was... More

The food is great, the staff are friendly, and they open at 8am for breakfast (really for breakfast). Most breakfast restaurants in Amsterdam open at 9am or 9:30am, which i think is too late.
