This cafe is absolutely a locals spot. The bar tender was helpful and super friendly. He helped us select local beers which were very good, and there were no TVs and Radios making it a great spot to sit and enjoy the canal, the beer, and the company. In the mornings the coffee was awesome. I tried "Satans Coffee" which... More

We were walking around in the area and happened to walk in. We sat outside as it was pleasant enough - it was raining but the awning was large enough so it did not affect us. We had the grilled Cajun chicken sandwich and the club sandwich, both of which did not disappoint. The cheesecake was more bread-and-butter pudding but... More

I had a ham and cheese toastie from here, it was very tasty though I thought would be more for what I paid but taste made up for it.

Perhaps our expectations were too high after reading all the excellent tripadvisor reviews and to be fair the food was cheap, but to my mind distinctly average. I had soup and my partner a burger. It was fine but nothing special. Service was very slow despite the fact that we ate at about 3pm.

This café was so close to our hotel, we couldn't not try it. The red wine and snacks did not disappoint - what a wonderful introduction to Dutch cheese and bread! The service was impeccable, friendly, and the location sublime. Highly recommended!

Wandered in here on a whim on a cold, sunny February late morning for a quick lunch. If we had *bothered* to check it out on TA we would have found all the glowing endorsements to be true! Exceptionally friendly service; lots of variety; great prices; free WiFI; marvelous corner location for people watching as you eat; clean WC downstairs...... More

The main reason I wanted to write a review of this place is the Chicken Sate Toastie because it is one of the nicest sandwiches i have ever eaten. Lovely atmosphere, Lovely staff. Good prices.
