“Unimpressed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Ate breakfast here today. Coffee machine not working so couldn't have coffee with breakfast. I asked for the vegetarian scrambled eggs without the pesto (so eggs, mozzarella, tomatoes, spinach) she brought the 'classic scrambled eggs' which had ham and bacon. Waitress tried to insist that is what I ordered which was ridiculous given her attitude when I asked for 'without the pesto'. No offer of refund or new meal. The price of one tea was reduced from the bill. Give this place a miss

The speciality of the house are brownies..we got a mouldy one! Enough said although the service waitress was even worse of the brownie..

“Staff with attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Was hoping to eat here but left due to attitude of female staff member. Ignored when we entered the cafe and clearing tables seemed to take priority over seeing to customers. When we spoke to her she was unhelpful and dismissive so we went elsewhere. Shame as this place looked nice.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Nice place with tables outside. The food was satisfactory with reasonable prices (for Amsterdam). I recommend the spinach soup and the pasta of the week (or at least my week!).
