“Great dutch apple pie and whipped cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Quaint café/pub with high windows that let the light shine in. Two floors service area and a few seats at the bar. Loved this place so much, we went back twice.

“What a café!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

Nice and familiar pub with warm staff. We ordered Dutch beers and snacks and were very good! Besides it is close to canals, in a very beautiful position. Prices are normal. Highly recommended.

“Querky cafe in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here whilst touring the canals, the food menu is quite limited however, this place is more about the atmosphere, location and history.

It was lovely to just sit and sip a cold drink on such a warm day and just take in the city and day dream, this is a great spot to do that and the staff are very friendly!

Two drinks and two toasties came up at about 11 Euros which was a bargain.

“Mid Morning Coffee and Appelgebak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Really friendly chatty waitstaff at a saturday mid-morning breakfast stop. Sat at the bar with the Appelgebak and coffee and chatted with three friends - Delicious! - packed with people with a nice atmosphere - not a 'linger-long' cafe

“"Tea" (beers) Time and excellent apple pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

A very nice café with a special atmosphere inside, walls are covered by smoke from the past... They serve an excellent housemade apple pie with whipped cream. You can feel cinnamon everytime you take a piece in your mouth.
