Little gem!

Had a fantastic breakfast here on our recent trip. Place was packed but the very friendly staff fitted us in after a few mins. Good choice of food on the menu, the BLT's are great.

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.

Ok, it was only sandwiches, but they were well done, and not everyone knows how to make them well. Gets crowded at weekends especially, but if you can get a table I recommend it.

Ate breakfast here a couple times during my trip, prices not dirt cheap but vs hotel it seems a steal and it's good. Don't go if you are in hurry as the team here are more thoughtful and intent on serving good food than having crowds rushing in and out. They do a set breakfast or omelettes and sandwiches etc....

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.
