“Do not miss this lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Several times we went around, but it was always crowded. Fortunately, the cafe is in very good location, a bit hidden, but not a problem to stop at any other city walk. Very cozy atmosphere, excellent coffee as well as tea, delicious desserts and surprise at the end, actually, in the beginning :)
Service quality sometimes varies, but I do recommend it as a great place for breakfast or just for an afternoon cup, I believe that you will not regret it.

“Delicious and reasonably priced with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The best meal I had in Amsterdam, really friendly and helpful service and a charming interior too. I tried the dish with the pine-needle reduction and it was DELICIOUS. The tea's were also high quality and in good portions. Definitely recommended.

“Simple. Authentic. Tasty.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

A friend took me here for lunch. Luckily we arrived early; with not many seats this place filled up fast. And no wonder. Deliciously simple French cuisine, served with Dutch generosity. A welcome break from the typical tourist rubbish located nearby. Eat here!

“Good food but not cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

I heard good things about this restaurant. A little bit disappointed about the service and the food. The food was good but it is not cheap. Next year I come back.

“Great Pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

What a nice, cozy place to have breakfast. The pancakes were really excellent, ingredients were fresh and the staff was very friendly and efficient. We meant to go back again but ran out of time. Reservations aren't strictly necessary, but I'd recommend them, as this place seems to be on a lot of people's radar.
