Description: PIQNIQ: for your breakfast, lunch & high tea in the Jordaan area in Amsterdam PIQNIQ as in picnic? Yes, something like that. PIQNIQ is derived from the French word for picnic; pique a nique. Pique means 'choose or pick something' while nique stands for 'a litlle something' means. So PIQNIQ refers to a variety of small dishes of which you can choose from, just like a picnic in the country. At PIQNIQ you are invited to choose from our variety of small sweet & savory dishes and enjoying them in our nice natural restaurant in a typical golden age Amsterdam surrounding while looking at the life on the street, reading a newspaper/magazine/book or take pleasure in a conversation with your table companion(s).At PIQNIQ we serve breakfast, lunch, coffee and tea with sweet bites, fresh juices, smoothies, a quality glass of wine and cold beers. You can also order for a special treat at the office or to take with you to the park or on your boat tour. Take a look at our website for the different possibilities and the menu. We are open daily from 09.00 am. till 05:30 pm.

“Great spot for lunch and trying a few dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

we stumbled on Piqniq on a quiet afternoon in Jordaan, and thought it looked really cute. Staff were very friendly and their concept of picking 3 small dishes and a drink for under €10 was a great way to try a few things. We were all really impressed with the food and presentation - the ingredients all seemed very fresh. We'd definitely recommend it!

“Eating home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Small bright neighborhood cafe with Light Dutch decor. Very friendly owner/chef. Probably best pancake we ever had (avoid the Pancake Bakery!), with honey and nuts. Don't go if you want expansive breakfast menu as choices are limited. But what is served is all delicious. Even the 2 euro croissant with jam was to die for. Great coffee (in small cups).

“Better not going if you want to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Yeah, 9'75? three-dishes menú with drink included, but their dishes are minimalist and with that price you leave the local hungry.

The menu was caothic and difficult to understand. The food was OK.

Really cozy stablishement, the staff was average.

A quiet neighbourhood, the local is nice if you want to relax.

“Dutch little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stumbled across this little gem whilst wandering around. We had lunch which was based on 3 selected items and a hot drink for E9.50. I had home made soup, quiche and a tuna sandwich and a cup / glass of breakfast tea. The quality was to die for, every mouthful was a joy and the portion size turned out to be just right as it left room to sample the cakes! We wanted a second cup of tea and there was a 4 cake selection and two hot drinks also for E9.50; no brainer! My wife and I shared the cakes (sorry to say) as they were so so nice, light and full of flavour. It was the best lunch I've had for under E30's! Just give it a go. The cat was still there asleep on the window sill but I would still go in for lunch again even if it were a tiger!
