They have variety here--and it all tastes good. Reminds me of Foodlife in Chicago. Great family place where everyone can get exactly what they want. We had chicken, salads, noodles, and fruit--all delicious. The staff are a bit surly but you don't have to interact with them much so it wouldn't deter me. If they were friendly then I would...

This place serves freshly squeezed juices, fresh healthy food to choose from (sandwiches, panini, pizza , salmon, shrimps, soups, different types of salads & many more). I ordered steak & they grilled it to order. I am stuffed! Good variety, plenty of sitting, free wi-fi & again, had a lot of good food!

Was taken here by the Sandeman free walking tour guide for a quick bite during the tour and can't thank him enough for showing us this place! Fresh, healthy, well presented, clean food which looked so wonderful and tasted even better. Not very pricey and went back there again during our stay

It's easy and the food is surprisingly good. Like the salad selection especially. And when i ask for a special service on the sandwich it is never a problem. Very interesting because after all it's basically dutch teenagers pretending to be cooks...;-))

We loved this place and thus gave it 5 stars. It is not a 5 star sit down fancy restaurant - but it's the place to go for fresh made food - especially for lunch. We ate here twice for a late lunch. There is so much to choose from from smoothies to pastas and everything in between. Just look... More

I like La Place - a self-service market style restaurant which specialises in fresh food cooked in-front of you. The cafe on the Kalverstraat is compact and can get packed with tourists during the lunch hour, especially in spring and summer. Tend to go there for fresh mint tea and a late afternoon snack.

Food was freshly prepared and everything I tried was delicious. The fruit juices were amazing, the pastries in the groceries section were still warm, the salads and hot food were well prepared. Everything was great! It's good value for money and although the place is super busy, food is well presented and the place is clean. Only downside is that... More

When asking for a ham panini I was told that I could take it myself. Fine, however, I didn't have access to the panini machine. When I asked the lady how it worked, she said that it was "not normal" for a Panini to be heated up. Now, my culinary knowledge may not be broad but I believe to remember... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
