Great, healthy food

I've been coming to Nielsen for years. It's a great concept, the interior is lovely, and the food is great. The only way it could be improved is if it were a bit easier to get the staff's attention. Once they're at your table, they're always very friendly!

We stopped in for an early lunch of really nice salmon club sandwiches. It's a hip and cosy place, their English is great and the neighbourhood is nice if you're into hipster'ish things and shopping. Would go again.

In de middle of this hip area The Nine Streets we found this perfect lunchspot. Polite waiters, somethibg went wrong so we got drinks on the house. Food was perfect, coffee was even better. Take a window seat if you want to see the city waking up on a sunday morning. Enjoy!

We were looking for a quick breakfast on a Sunday morning before a trip back home:-( Super Amsterdam laid back but friendly service. I had the breakfast platter: 2 super scrambled eggs, browns toast, butter and jam, a selection of fresh fruit, fresh juice and coffee and fresh juice all for less than € 10. My husband had a brilliant... More

Visited Nielsen on a Friday morning and were seated by the window. Here I could eat my breakfast and drink my coffee with the people of Amsterdam rushing by on their way to work. Kind staff, good coffee, nice atmosphere, tasty local breakfast and not to pricey. The perfect place to start the day before heading out to explore the... More

Friendly genuine service, nice spacious interior in the always busy "nine streets" area. Great food, fresh and tasty. We went there for breakfast and although the restaurant was full packed the service went fast and friendly. Great coffee Lavazza, eggs, bacon and fresh orange juice.

We had a pleasant lunch here, sitting outdoors and enjoying the area. Our sandwich was large and excellent. It made for a nice afternoon in Amsterdam.
