“Excellent breakfast and the best of your trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We enjoyed our breakfast so much we went back a second time ( Singel restaurant). It was the nicest breakfast we had throughout our stay. Eggs Benedict were excellent as were the scrambled eggs with chives which were first class and served with delicious brown toast and quality butter. Coffee too was excellent. Some people may mention service being slow but I would describe it as relaxed and the way it should be when serving breakfast and the staff come out and ask if everything is ok! Toilets too were spotless which is always a bonus and tells you a lot about the place.

“Cozy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Went here for brunch, and the place is very nice and cozy. We ordered the Eggs Benedict. The eggs are not propper poached, but in a mold or something. It doesn't matter, because it was very nice. Regardless of the poaching method. The place is easily crowded, but worth the wait if it is no free tables.

“Believe the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Having read all the raving reviews on Trip Advisor about Greenwoods I thought I would give it a try myself and see what all the hype was about. Well, I'm happy to say it lived up to my expectations - good, service, nice location and great food. Being English I can confidently say that it was better than most café's we have in the UK. Well done.

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We spent quite a lot of time looking for the perfect breakfast in Amsterdam until we found this place. The food was delicious, coffee was great and there was plenty of vegetarian and ecological food which we considered a plus. Service was ok, a bit slow but very friendly. Prices were ok too.

“Good, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Good food, nicely priced, nice place. But don't hope to get your juice - even if you have ordered it twice. And it eternity to wait for your check.

I am very sorry to hear about this. We have been trying to train some new staff and sadly some of them have proved to he hopeless and have since been removed. I am very sorry that you had this problem. We are taking all steps to make sure that our high standards are improved and maintained. sorry once again for this problem.
