“I liked this place a lot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I read about it here first, and took the advice of a good many canny Tripadvisors -- and it was great. This is a tiny family-run concern, and if yo can squeeze in, go crazy and order the biggest broodje you can, anything to extend the flavor experience. The ingredients are fresh, and the place is crackling, so get there early to avoid a crush. I had the salami and tomato on baguette, and the partner had lox on a roll. We win, and we thank the good people of this website for suggesting we hit this place up.

“Gorgeous freshly prepared food, friendly staff, value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Found the place by accident. Looked busy and nearly walked by as there were no spare seats. Then the door opened and a couple stepped out so we stepped in!

So good we eneded up eating here twice:
Day 1: The Broodje Bert Burger and goat's cheese / honey walnut, both come with a large plate full of mixed salad. 4 small homemade burgers - delicious. The goat's cheese - soft creamy cheese on a toasted ciabbata.

Day 2: Bacon sandwich and goat's cheese again.
Don't be fooled by the term 'bacon sandwich'. This was a massive dish of bread, bacon, cheese, salad and sauces. Never had a bacon sandwich as nice.

Coffee is freshly made - and is proper coffee!

Orange juice is freshly squeezed.

All freshly prepared in a tiny kitchen right in front of you.

The place seats about 12 people - but you never have to wait long.

“Great value quick lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We visited for a late lunch so could get a table a bit more easier for a Saturday afternoon. We both got hot choices, the goats cheese and walnut sandwich was very good and very tasty and the salami and cheese was also very good. This is a great place for quality fresh food that is served quick. Would deffo go back

“Greatest Breakfast in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Located just next to NH City Center hotel, this is one of the most delicious breakfast I ever had. Not a fancy restaurant, family run and capacity is relatively short, but if you get there - it worth every penny...!
