Many stalls to choose from. Yummy food. Buy your food and pay at the check-out counter. Not expensive too. There are many sitting areas too. Quick snack while taking a rest.

This branch of La Place doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it's got a vast array of fresh foods set up across several 'zones' (salads, soups, pasta, pizzas, etc.) in cavernous rooms. Cosy eating areas downstairs are easily outdone by the light and airy upstairs with dining tables set around the atrium and wide openings into separate eating... More

Stopped in here while shopping one day because I wanted some healthy food. I've walked past this place many times but never actually eaten here. They have an awesome selection of food to eat in or take home. Everything looks so delicious it's hard to make a decision on what to eat! Prices are a little high, but not surprising... More

We find the food at La Place to be very good, the selection broad, and the price reasonable. As a non-Dutch speaker, it is also extremely helpful to be able to "see" the food, then select what one would like to eat. In this location, there is a take-away on the ground level, the "cafeteria" on the next level, and... More

visit the place for lunch, great variety of meat, fish, vegetables, pastry and more. you can easily find something that you'll like. free WI-FI is also a plus. a little bit pricey (11€ for sandwich (big one) and a squeezed juice), but considering to fresh ingredients i think its fair.

Had a great lunch in a clean, spacious and great cafe. The food was very good with reasonable portions. Service was good and staff very friendly. When in Amsterdam again will return to this very good eatery.

Went here for coffee and cake one day and came back the next for lunch - it was all delicious and the range of different options there was great. I would definitely recommend it!

I went for lunch with friends. It seems a big bazar but at the end the selection of food is wide. It is almost impossible not to find what you like! SUGGESTED!

I went for lunch. I took the mixed grill and a sandwich. There is a wide choice of food: sandwiches, bread, meat, fish, fruit, sweets, juice ecc. It is a good alternative to the usual fast and food. I advice you to try it!

This is a cafeteria in the library, but it's anything BUT a normal cafeteria. From a huge, diverse salad bar, to delicious, made to order wood fire pizza, to a sandwich bar with fresh bread, and ingredients. The flavor of the food is terrific! We may just have you return for more. A bit pricey, but well worth the splurge... More
