Nice little place to have breakfast or quick lunch. The staff is lovely. The prices are acceptable. Try the local beer in the blue bottle.

Nice atmosphere, cheery staff. We were here for coffee and pastries, which were great. We walked by at lunchtime, and it was packed. Nice neighborhood place where you feel like a local!

“Excellent! Great taste and value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We were exploring the Jordaan area and came across this restaurant by happy chance. It is very small and has a limited menu - the woman who served us made the point that the portions were small and recommended that we have two or three items - two items with a non-alcoholic drink cost €7.75, three items on the same basis €9.95. The food (soup, quiche, snacks of various kinds) was all made in house and very tasty. The service was pleasant and helpful. Five of us ate a satisfying light lunch here, including three glasses of wine, for under €55. We were all delighted.

“Really enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Piqniq is a nice, cozy cafe in Amsterdam. We went there Sunday morning for breakfast and we had the 'full' breakfast. It was a mixture of savory and sweet food served on a plate with also a glass of fresh fruit. It was very tasty and the price was very good as well. The lady working there was friendly and made us feel comfortable. I would recommend this lovely, warm cafe to travellers who want to be a bit away from the tourist/busy spots of the city.
