Central and good veggie choices

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... read 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.

When we stop coming here for breakfast, it's because we have left Amsterdam. Try the "tosti." The servers are casual, and they seem to enjoy their jobs.

This small unpretentious cafe served us for breakfast not once, or twice but three days in a row because it served good food quickly and for an affordable price - a difficult combination to find in a restaurant in Amsterdam. We are not not talking 5 star but it was clean, well run, with pleasant polite fast service and good... More
