This restaurant is now closed as of 12/15/2013. It was a cute little breakfast restaurant on the corner in the Village of Saratoga. Was very sorry to see it go....

We drove out of Boulder Creek, looking for lunch, and happened to park on the street next to this cafe. Unfortunate, There were two other tables with people. Breakfast is served all day - only breakfast. The owner (?) was bored, not unfriendly, but unenthusiastic and pre-occupied. The other waitress couldn't wait to leave. They started putting chairs on tables... More

We come here every year for breakfast. Great American breakfasts, bottomless coffee and nice service. Hashbrowns are delicious

Located in picturesque Saratoga, Little Amsterdam has been operating for 38 years. Same owner/cook, who is from Holland. It has ten tables and about a dozen seats at the counter. Best hashbrowns anywhere, excellent attentive service and a jewel of a place to seek out when in the San Jose area. Saratoga is a quaint, beautiful village, perfect for strolling... More

Basic basic basic old school and boring. Coffee in dingy mugs; unhappy waitress in the morning (yes, we felt sorry for her - ugh), plastic covered blue/white table cloths, hash browns from the freezer section and a poor selection of breakfast items. WOW, we should have gone for "fast food" - tasteless in all ways.

Yelp warned us this was a diner but with good food. .We don't mind diners and thought it might be fun. Unfortunately the food was nothing special and the waitress was very unfriendly. She did her job but that was it. Not even a smile.

Not much choice for breakfast in Saratoga, but Little Amsterdam was fine. The food was good, but small portions for the price. Good service.

Over the past five years, during my annual trip to this area, I've been having breakfast at this diner like cafe. The food is great, served quickly with healthy portions. One of my favorite spots to have breakfast and read the morning paper.

Happy I found this warm little place, with large portions that serve only the best quality foods I have had the pleasure to eat. It does not end there the owner goes an extra mile to tell his customers thank you for coming in. It is a family owned and operated cafe that America seems to be losing. I only... More
