The staff was extremely helpful & courteous; the bread was fabulous & the pastries were divine. The traditional apple pastry was my favorite.

As you can see by my reviews I am not a fan of the location on the Damrak. If you really need a bit and cannot walk a few blocks than sure the place does sandwiches and coffee to go.

Typically the Dutch by their bread daily from Bakkerijen, not the supermarket. So any bread you buy is going to be fresh and tasty. Here are some typical Dutch delicacies you can try: Krentenbol ( bun with raisins), Sausijsenbroodje ( type of sausage roll ), any of their pre filled roll selection especially on their brown breads, a gevulde koek...

We were here every day for breakfast. Friendly staff, cheap food (1eur for a huge croissant), fresh orange juice and made to order sandwiches. Love this place!
