The food is good, never had any bad experience, and they are very helpfull and friendly. Great location as well... read more

Nice lunch with salads, sandwiches, and steak, dinner has quite a complete card with many choises, splendid servants, not too expensive, Nice place near a park. The steak seems to be famous. I liked it very much

This place is really popular with people with small children or people alone to get a cup of coffee. Or friends catching up. Staff is friendly, and there is a small outdoor area. It's next to the Wilhelmina Park. The food is simple, affordable and OK.

Went for a special family occasion and were bowled over by the quality of the food and friendly staff. The cafe has a lovely ambience. The chef treated us to an amazing selection of deserts. I would especially recommend the cheesecake. If you are looking for a simple lunch/coffee or for a special evening meal you will not go wrong... More

This is a good basic restaurant, nice food and great surrounding if you cross the street you are in the park and the people who serve dinner are very friendly and above all the food is good.

Pleasant location [a bit like the road from Kew Station to Kew Gardens]. Coffee was very good and the club sandwich was quite impressive, maybe a bit too busy with ingredients and layers, but we enjoyed it.

We live nearby and went for an easy lunch with my parents visiting. The food was good, the staff friendly, the café cat was sleeping on a pillow by the window next to me :). The coffee is good and the terrace is always packed on a sunny day. The club sandwich is served with chips which is a nice... More

Friendly restaurant in living area. The type you can go to by yourself and still have a good time. To have drinks or snacks this restaurant is great. We unfortunately had dinner and choose for the vegetarian options. Mine was supposed to be gnocchi with Spanish salsify (a kind of root vegetable) but it contained only 2 big gnocchi and... More

This places has great food for lunch and I definitely recommend it. It has a nice "studenty" atmosphere, more casual. It has a nice view of the Wilhelminapark and it just feels nice and cozy. The prices are not bad considering the other food places around. Definitely worth paying a visit before/after the Rietveld house (as they are about a... More
