“Morning coffee and dutch apple pie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Found this place by accident, very welcoming and friendly. Really atmospheric decor.
Had 2 good coffees and a very excellent slice of dutch apple cake/pie. A perfect mid moring pick-me-up that helped us face a few more hours sigh seeing.
Do really try to stop by for a visit, one of our most authentic dutch stops across two days in Amsterdam.

A nice and cosy place where you will feel at home immediately. Staff were very helpful and open to provide us with feedback on a research I was doing. Will come back soon to have a beer

“It's the people really but the food is very good too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stumbled on this charming little hostelry quite by accident, partly attracted by the tag line “Everything is possible”. We were warmly welcomed by Bianca, one of a number of friendly and obliging staff. We were looking for ‘ontbijt’ which is Dutch for breakfast but which has no precise definition so I asked for egg on toast with a bit of bacon. My Wife asked for an omelette, tomato and toast. Shortly we were each staring at a plate with three times our respective orders all beautifully presented on beds of salad. Not only was it all cooked to perfection, the coffee was great too. All that said the thing that we liked most about this bar/restaurant was a great feeling of ‘Gezelligheid’. It’s a Dutch word meaning comfortable/friendly welcoming/ cosy and stuff like that. Our visits (yes we did go back) to the Bauwe Pan became an important part of our holiday. Although they will cater for everyone including ‘boys nights out’ my wife and I felt very welcome to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

“Lovely spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a beer while walking around Jordan. The woman who runs it might be the nicest person ever. Her adorable son helps her run the place, giving it a sweet family atmosphere. Very clean, delicious beer, and beautiful upstairs area. Really enjoyed the abundance of outdoor seating on a beautiful afrernoon!

“Good people, good grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

The staff at De Blauwe Pan are super friendly, we felt extremely welcome there.

The food wasn't anything amazing but it's really good value (around 10€ a meal) and you won't leave hungry.

Will definitely visit these guys again on my next visit to Amsterdam. :)
