good food, good sandwich

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.

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.

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
