Phenonmenal 360 degree view over the roofs of Amsterdam near the Bloemenmarket. We just had drinks so cannot say much about the food.

Beste Michael,
Wat vervelend dat dit is voorgevallen en dat wij dit niet goed met u hebben kunnen maken. Kunt u contact opnemen per email met ons? Dit geldt ook voor uw tafelgenoot die dezelfde klacht heeft geplaatst op Tripadvisor. Ik hoor graag van u. Met vriendelijke groet.

“Fantastic coffee and an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Blue is located in the Kalvertoren Shopping Center on the third level. Not very easy to find but certainly worth the adventure. Once you reach the third floor you’ll be surrounded by fantastic views of the city and a very relaxed, modern vibe. While there I enjoyed a fantastic latte. They have a very impressive list of drinks to choose from as well as small meals such as sandwiches, soups and warm dishes.

The views are absolutely amazing and being able to relax while enjoying a drink in this modern chic setting really makes for an enjoyable experience. Not to be missed while in Amsterdam.

Really nice venue, great view and nice cofee.
The location was just in the center next to bloomingmarkt.

“Coffee & view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

If you want to have something to eat or coffee with great view over the city come here.
We were after lunch, so tried only their delicious apple pie and good coffee for reasonable price.
Service was quick and efficient.
I wouldn't mind to come there next time may be during a sun set to have different view and tried their sandwich with cheese which looked very good on our neighbour's table ;)
