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.

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!
