Description: Buffet van Odette is located on a nice and light spot right on the canal. We are open from 10 in the mornig for breakfast, lunch and diner. We use mainly authentic, organic and local product in our kitchen. Our Bocca-coffee is delicious and Direct Trade (even better than Fair Trade)!

“Delucious fresh organic food ...perfect for brunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Like other reviewers we stumbled onto this find! Located on a quiet corner, this airy cafe/restaurant truly had great tasting food. Most locally sourced, great coffee, hot chocolate, soups, etc. it was so good we came twice for breakfast in 2 days. Not touristy. Seems attention goes to food as service very laid back but once the order is in the food comes quickly. Highly recommended fir brunch/ light lunch

“Good brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Very nice food and good choice for brunch, poor service but as anywhere else in Amsterdam. The owner needs to learn how to smile :)

“Fantastic find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We strolled by here on our way about the town, and opted to return for dinner because it looked like it would have healthy clean food. What a great decision that was.

The food was fantastic. Meats were *perfectly* cooked; veggies were fresh and crisp; the environment was casual but tasteful. Dishes were inventive but tasty and not surreal. We would absolutely go back.

The only thing we might not recommend it for would be a very fancy night out. It is friendly and crisp - perfect for a nice meal with a well-behaved family, friends, or a couple.

“The perfect place to stop for a coffee & cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Yes, I totally agree with the reviewer that wrote about the sticky toffee pudding - it rocks! Everything else I had here was delicious ; I could have quite happily eaten my way though the menu whilst watching the world go buy on their terrasse.

“Good quality, service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We have visited Buffer Van Odette few times already and we liked this place a lot. The food is really good and the service too. It's located in the centre of the city and the kitchen is open the whole day; this one is very important as not all of us are synchronised with Dutch lunch/dinner hours. Fully recommended.
