Great coffee, music and friendly staff

I went to the Cafe Schinkelhaven while waiting the doors to open for a performance in the nearby nice Munganga theatre. Their cappuccino was delicious. The Cafe has a friendly staff and they were having live good music with a band. It was a bit noise, but the place is a lively place for people... read more

A burger. A good one. That's basically what you need after a night of wine and Pimm's. So I went to this place which i often pass by bike but never visited. On Sunday at 12.00 pm it's still quiet, a great time to pick your favorite spot and have a cup of joe to slowly get rid of your... More

Terrible service, ridiculously amateur food and tiny portions. I would not recommend it for food. Only plus, it has a nice terrace.

A friendly place near the Vondelpark and the Schinkel. Good for beer and snack. Burger night is disappointing, like most local burgers. Relaxed for chatting and a beer.

In the mood for some burgers and fries I made my way inside to notice a small cosy restaurant with a large bar. The host was very nice and I ordered my burger, not knowing what I would get and I prayed... More
