“Hearty Breakfast in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We tried to start our day here but the restaurant doesn't open until 930 so we stopped in for Brunch after a visit to the Van Gogh museum. Excellent and fresh eggs and sandwiches. Full English breakfast, eggs Benedict, BLT's , Frites, fresh squeezed OJ served in a small intimate friendly "basement " location with seating for about 8 people on the first floor. Friendly and helpful staff and a nice option for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

“Greenwoods English Tea Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

This is a cosy little place facing the canal and always seem so busy, which is a good sign for a restaurant. The food was delicious, worth the wait and priced very reasonable. They bake their bread on site, ours was still warm when it came to the table and the best organic rye loaf I've had. The staff a very friendly. Grandmas' meatball is very tasty!

“Yummy Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We visited Greenwood's on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews as there are so many places in Amsterdam to eat breakfast! It was very busy, but we didn't have to wait that long for a table. I think they could benefit from larger premises as I'm sure they could fill a larger space. The staff were friendly and were efficient considering the number of people they were serving. I can't recommend the eggs benedict enough, absolutely delicious. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

“Just Wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

As breakfast enthusiasts this little cafe had a lot to live up to. It did with bells on! Super location (you can sit inside and out) with a super menu. I had the full English which was delicious, all organic ingredients meant the taste was amazing and fresh. My husband had the 'Mexican' breakfast, he thought the eggs were the best he ever tasted. We will be back!!
