In a sunny cold day of November I decided to seat at the outside terrace of this cafe and enjoy a quick lunch and the sun. What a wrong choice. After many tries I got the attention of the waitresses and order a Club Sandwich and a beer. The beer came fairly fast, but for the sandwich I had to... More

We used this as our meeting point for a large group of runners whilst attending the Rotterdam marathon, it's well located outside the expo entrance & on the start finish straight. There's plenty of seating inside & out plus free wifi, though this couldn't cope at peak periods. The food choice for breakfast, lunch & dinner was good (we ate... More

A lousy lunch. The waitress forgot to process my order. When it eventually arrived,(after an hour) it was so greasy it dripped. A half-hearted apology and a free drink to repair the damage did appease a little, but my advice is choose somewhere else.

That was a terrible experience. We ordered simple pancakes and one and a half hour later we still haven't got it. The waitress was extremely unfriendly and rude. We have spoken to the manager trying to explain our disappointment but she was also very rude to us. Finally we left seriously upset, havent't eaten anything and lost two hours of... More

Situated in the heart of the city, right in front of the nicest warehouse De Bijenkorf. This location and it's terrace are obvious reasons to choose this café. Unfortunately, the easy attraction seems to make staff rather lazy, not going the extra mile or smile. Quality of food and beverage are not bad at all, but if you're feet aren't... More

Just went once at I had to meet a friend in town and this is the first place we saw. Staff is definitely not interested in customer service, drinks OK but very expensive. Would not eat there. Inside and outside decor very dated and cheap looking.

I was traveling on my own for the weekend and really wanted something to eat and drink after lots of walking about. The place was really busy and the service really slow. There was a frazzled waitress who dropped a glass bottle - most of which shattered over me. However, it was buzzing with people and fascinating to be in... More

A good located cafe for a coffee or tea, but if you want to eat something, it is not the right place. Prices are no high for an average quality food. We had 1 hour before closing time and it was quite full there, they took the order, but couldn't wait we are left and started cleaning, lifting chairs, screaming... More
