Bright, spacious and modern - cosy too

This cafe restaurant is bright and modern and has lots of space inside, unlike many of Amsterdam's restaurants. The atmosphere on Sunday lunchtime was cosy and welcoming. We really liked it.

Walem is the neighbouring restaurant to Morlang and their atmospheres are, if not identical, at least very close to the same. This is not a bad thing. The service is a little bit slow, but their burgers are worth the wait. We never got the chance to sample the rest of the menu, but if it's comparable to their handywork... More

When I'm in Amsterdam, I always try to make time for lunch in this café. They do nice light lunches. The service is great. It is especially nice if you can sit outside on a sunny day.

We had breakfast at Walem and were quite disappointed. The location is great and staff were friendly. We were there early on a Saturday morning and it was still very quiet, so food was prepared quickly and service was fast. However, the microwaved scrambled eggs were disappointing, plus we found a hair in the eggs. Croissants and toast were very... More

I came here on a Sunday in July 2014. I had a fantastic ham and cheese omellette with a tasty fresh salad. I wanted some cheesy chips and although this wasn't on the menu the waiter kindly arranged for some cheese to be sprinkled on top. This was accompanied by some nice mayonnaise and decent coffee. The environment inside is... More

My friend and I were walking around, tired we decided to grab something small to eat and have a drink. We sat outside right next to the canal which allowed for great ambiance. I enjoyed this place already. I then ordered a traditional Dutch appetizer(which I forget the name) but they were deep fried bread balls filled with some type... More

I stumbled into Walem after a long walk around Amsterdam just because I was desperate to sit down! I was glad I did because even on a budget, I had a great lunch and didn't feel the usual anxiety about being on my own as there were plenty of others there who were eating solo too. I ended up using... More

We stumbled across this place and loved it so much we went back the next night. This is such a great place. The food is amazing. It's right on one of the canals so great for a sunny afternoon or evening. After paying far too much for a couple of crappy meals, this place was a breath of fresh air!... More
