“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We saw the reviews on trip advisor before going to Amsterdam and decided to check this place out. It's a tiny little place next to the canal, and is full of character. If you're lucky enough to find a table in here, we would definitely recommend the breakfast.

“Brilliant breakfast will fill you up all day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We arrived at about 10am and got a table easily. We ordered an omelet and eggs Florentine. Both were delicious and the portions huge! The cafe is pleasant and service was great with a lovely friendly waitress.

“Fantastic experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Went with my boyfriend. Awesome experience. We had High Tea. The staff was very friendly and service was fast but not freakishly fast. Amazing tea (free-floating leaves instead of boring ol' teabags), lovely homemade bread, cute little sandwiches, best scones I've ever had with real clotted cream (hard to find in the Netherlands) and awesome lemon meringue pie + carrot cake. You're offered another pot of tea after a while (free of charge) and some more jam with your scone is not a problem. It's a lovely room, the atmosphere is amazing. The only things that could be better are the crowdedness -- we sat next to two girls whining and gossiping which made it hard to have a conversation and not be distracted. You're also constantly worrying you're throwing something off the table when going to the bathroom, sitting down, etc. For the price we payed (16,95) the food was really good (and it was a lot). Would definitely go again and advise you to do the same, but please don't take the table next to the window because it's such a cute little spot!

“Lovely breakfast at this quaint restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We visited Greenwoods one morning in early January and our party of 6 was lucky to get a table inside this quaint restaurant.
The breakfast was amazing and the presentation was impeccable. Not one of us could find any fault with our meals or the service that we received.
