The 'real' owner and his (or her?) baristas were on a convention in the US, we therefore got served by friends - and it didn't spoil the taste at all. It was one of the best flat whites I've ever had! Besides the very good coffee, they also sell pastries such as muffins, cookies etc. My friend and I went... More

I ordered the Latte and it was good. But the real badge goes to the blueberry muffin. The best blueberry muffin I have ever eaten! Not too moist, not too dry and not too sweet. One thing that I will say is that it got pretty crowded in there.

Nice coffee, shame about the no-WiFi. You'd expect in this day and age, trying to grab attention from those who flock to Starbucks that you'd get some WiFi to help consume your digital newspapers whilst you sip.

The place is nice, cozy and neat. Had my flat white here, loved it. One of the best coffees I ever tried. Got some beans too :)

One of the very top level coffee & espresso cafes in Amsterdam. Not a lot of seating but we've always been able to find a spot. Small selection of pastries and baked goods too. Note that the address on TripAdvisor at the time of this review is the former address. Currently located on Westerstraat in Jordaan.

This was the best espresso I have ever had-- the crema was thick, sweet, and perfect. I also tried their macchiato which was great, and a spelt müesli bar which was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. Come here if you want to read, relax, and experience Dutch culture. Maybe some kind Nederlanders will pull up and share the table with... More

Came here based on a recommendation and boy did it not disappoint. A tiny place with a neat, minimal design and although barely having enough seating for every guest who's wanting to stay you just don't go for a 'to go' coffee. No, cause you are charmed by the homey, sweet atmosphere and you are going to stay even if... More

Wife and I from Sydney and love our coffee. This place is great. They do a mean flat white and have some good pastries. Only wish places like this in Amsterdam did meals!
