Not one eye on us... Are they at work???... More

Great little cafe to stop and relax after walking around the canals. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is efficient. Nice coffee and salads. Recommended for a coffee and a long relax. Try and get a seat out the front when the sun shines... which is rarely ever, it's Amsterdam!

If you are looking for a nice little cafe on a canal for a croissant and coffee or hot chocolate, this is a fine choice. Simple breakfasts for under 8 €.

I go here a lot,used to be once a week for lunchtime chat with "friend", the staff recognises me as a regular. Usually I love it. However today I believe the salad prep person forgot to wash hands since about 4-5 hours after my tasty chefs salad, I got some serious tummy trouble, yes, food poisoning. It could have been...

We went there every morning for breakfast while we were in Amsterdam. Nice little corner cafe with good coffee, bread, cheese, croissants for a reasonable price.

Unusual combination but don't miss it, it's delicious... They make excellent espresso and serve it with a slice of traditional Dutch ginger cake... a real treat!

It's in a nice location overlooking a canal and the upstairs room where we ate was bright and welcoming. The lunchtime salad/sandwiches/soup etc was fine. Service was a bit erratic - our coffees never arrived. Worth noting that Baton does not sell alcohol. If you want a beer/glass of wine with your food I'd recommend Stout! (very close) as an... More

Nice seating outside by canal. We had 3 toasted sandwiches and soft drinks for ?28.50 so not exactly cheap but service was quick and good location.

It was clear a few minutes after being in the restaurant that this is a local favorite and that should be enough to recommend it. It is open for breakfast and lunch and serves great food with fresh ingredients at reasonable prices. My tomato-basil soup was filling and came with a slice of bread spread with tapenade. Had I known... More
