Great lunch stop

Stumbled into this bar on a wet lunchtime in Amsterdam and certainly didn't hurry to leave. Friendly, helpful staff. We both really enjoyed our lunch- lovely fresh bread in the sandwiches.

We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday morning. There was 3 of us and we had 2 small nachos between us which was more than enough. The two staff members were polite and friendly. I can't wait to visit again.

Food was good and for the size of the restuarant it is very quaint and a fun place to have lunch. Good beer selection and lunch menu. Well worth the stop

Walking around Amsterdam, and decided to try Harlem for drinks and dinner. We were drawn in by the Soul Food claims;being fro the Deep South, we weren't expecting this to be as good as it Is,but we really enjoyed our experience here. First, you cannot be claustrophobic; the tables are thisclose, and you will be elbow to elbow with other... More
