“Lunchtime delights ! Favorite place so far ! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Cute little cafe with a garden picnic feel. The food here is amazing ! We had soup, quiche and salad it all tasted homemade and there was a lot of thought put into the ingredients. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome even as a tourist. This has been the best meal we have had on our trip this far, would recommend to anyone visiting amsterdam looking for a healthy fresh brunch or lunch

“interesting idea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Piqniq is near the Jordaan in Lindengracht. It is very small & has 2 staff.The food was fresh and, inexpensive! We both had the lunch menu and mixed soup quice and a sandwich for less than 8 euros each, each with a drink included. I would definitely recommend going here for a lunch if you're budget-conscious.

“Perfect for traveler on a budget!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

My friend and I were both passing through Amsterdam, and with our college-student budget, found ourselves limited to restaurants with a single dollar-sign on our Amsterdam TripAdvisor City Guide (an app which I would recommend everyone download!). Piqniq was in a charming location near the Jordaan neighborhood and had a quaint and lively atmosphere. The staff was cheerful and the food was fresh and, most importantly, inexpensive! We both partook in the lunch menu and had the soup of the day and a sandwich for less than 8 euros each, each with a drink included. I would definitely recommend going here for a yummy lunch if you're a budget-conscious traveler like myself.

We had lunch here on two days. The concept is fab and enables you to combine sandwiches, quiches, soups etc.
All the ingredients are of a high quality & the service is friendly & welcoming.

“Deliciously different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Visited for lunch having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. Great concept, you can choose lots of small items to make up a picnic plate for lunch. Sandwiches are fresh and tasty , soup was good and the quiche was delicious. Staff friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us despite being very busy. Presentation very appealing and nicely served. Service was a little slow but they did apologise. Definitely worth a visit
