We stumbled on this place while looking for breakfast our first morning in Amsterdam and went back there four mornings in a row. A nice variety on the menu. DELICIOUS coffee, reasonable prices, EXCELLENT service, pleasant and upbeat atmosphere and location can't be beat. The staff is very sweet and there is variety on the menu. The food was consistently... More

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.

I visited the cafe for breakfast a Friday in May with a friend. We both ordered a traditional breakfast plate, with eggs, bread, tea/coffee and orange juice. The prices are reasonable and if you are heading out to do some shopping in the area, this is a good place to start the day.

Had breakfast here on our first day in Amsterdam. The staff were very nice and friendly and the food was really good. Wanted to back again but it is closed on Mondays. Inside it is very nice and had good atmosphere. Highly recommend although we only had breakfast I think the lunch menu looked good too.

My partner and I went here one morning quite early for breakfast. The gentleman serving us was very attentive and friendly. I ordered a latte and my partner a tea. My coffee was lovely and at just the right temperature. My partner was presented with an array of teas (which we later came to realise was standard for Amsterdam). Our... More

Listed in many paces as a great place for breakfast or lunch. Don't believe what you read, the food is barely average, a waste of a great location in " de 9 straatjes".

There's nothing fancy about Lunchcafe Nielsen. They offer a relatively limited menu of sandwiches and egg dishes. They are licensed but your only beer choice is Heineken by the bottle. We had a good lunch - chicken club sandwich, chicken and bacon sandwich and a brie sandwich. Service was efficient. Remember to go to the bar to pay your bill.
