“Amazing bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Arhh the smells of a bakery. French in style centrally located the place does a simple list. A little expensive but considering the quality it is worth the treat.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Excellent coffee and croissant with friendly service. What more could you ask for in the morning? It may not be the most attentive service but that's not the type of place it is. It is a casual environment where you seat yourself and then pay at the cash when you are done. The place is very clean and you can watch the bakery as it is all open.

“bad, not french and arrogant people”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Well, I'm French living in Amsterdam
We went there yesterday afternoon to buy some French cakes: millefeuille and chocolate éclair
First the guy, maybe the owner, said to us: "wait"!, not even something like "sorry, I'm with you in a minute" or something like that..
Not a smile, not a thank you not a good bye....
Mille feuille just horrible and dry: no icing. It was just a dry puff pastry with custard
Chocolate éclair: bready... heavy and the presentation was just hugly, not shiny
3.euros for an éclair...
So if you like French cake don't go there, it's everything but not French
If you like to be welcome by rude people: this is the place

“Great home made bread, beverages and food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Quite simply great to get your little pastries, bread or stop by for french breakfast or drink.
They use all organic ingredients, home made lemonade, home made iced tea, etc. They even do macarons and little tartines. Great!

“Excellent for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great for a continental style breakfast. We chose the jam with several small breads and croissants option. On first glance it didn't look much but filled our boots. The coffee and tea (several choices) were good. Service friendly and helpful. Niemiejer's is very busy with locals popping in for their daily bread and pastries so it's also a good place to people watch.
