This place is really nice to stop at but very hard to get in, go the day before and book a table is my advice!! Food was such nice quality and the cosy atmosphere was lovely on a rainy day.

The best breakfast spot in Amsterdam. perfect location and fantastic service, was even given blankets and hot chocolate to keep warm whilst waiting outside for a table! Although very busy its so worth the wait as the food is excellent!

Well done to Greenwoods. We recently called in for aftrernon tea and were not disappointed. The food was lovely, especially the fresh scones and the staff were pleasant and attentive. The only downsides were the difficulty in phoning through a reservation as we had to try 4 times and kept being put on hold for long periods and the lack... More

Greenwoods is the real deal - authentic English breakfast with homemade soda bread and scones. We have the eggs poached style. They were just right - a little runny but not too much. Get the homemade soda bread instead of toast. The scone was just cooked, warm and fluffy. Great with butter and jam. Amsterdam has lots of places that... More

Had breakfast here after seeing some of the reviews but was disappointed because it was expensive for just a bit of scrambled egg on toast and a pot of tea €20 for 2 of us!

After reading great reviews we decided to try Greenwoods for breakfast and what a good decision! We had eggs benedict and shared a soup of the day -in all honesty the soup wasn't anything special, but the eggs benedict were amazing! Hats off to the single waiter who did an great job serving all tables and managing waiting customers etc,... More

We came here twice during our stay for the breakfast. Very cosy restaurant, service was great and food delicious. The freshly brewed tea and squeezed orange juice gave the place a special edge.

This is an excellent breakfast stop. Get there at opening or you'll be queuing. Eggs Greenwood was a real unusual tweet and the drink of the day was great.

My breakfast at Greenwoods was well worth the wait in line for a table. As I was there in January, there was only the limited indoor seating. In warmer months, I believe they have many outside tables as well. It was cozy inside and the staff was very friendly for being so busy. I had the eggs benedict with smoked... More

Went to Greenwoods twice in 24 hours. First of all, on a cold bleak afternoon in need of warmth, which cames through a delicious hot chocolate and scone. The ambience is very relaxed, it is small and cosy, very friendly. There were people waiting patiently for one of the not very many tables, but no sense of being rushed by... More
