“Grew a beard whilst waiting for a table!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Had read the many great reviews and was looking forward to trying out this place.We had to wait for a table for 40 minutes whilst stood there like lemons with no feedback from the staff with how long we would have to wait or whether we were better off coming back later.
Ordered the bacon and egss on sourdough bread.Pretty tasty although eggs were a little overdone.Coffee was great and orange juice fresh and delicious.
Essentially it appeared to be mainly open sandwiches and scones on the menu.
Pretty reasonable food but service a little poor and probably not worth waiting more than ten minutes for a table.

“The best scones in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We loved 'De Bakkerswinkel' (Zeedijk 37, Amsterdam Centre) the first time, so decided this was the perfect place for a cozy and delicious birthday high tea.
We chose the 'Old baker high tea', which includes a fruit shake, finger food, a variety of quiches, french macaroons, different pieces of cake, their delicious scones accompanied by clotted cream and different types of jam (I recommend the lemon curd), and of course various flavors of (unlimited) tea. (21,50 euro pp)

The best thing is, everything is freshly baked right there. We were all full and satisfied when we left.
Extra info:
- Walking distance from the Amsterdam Central Station.
- Reservation is required, if you want to visit with a (large) group.
- Price for this high tea menu option: 21,50 euros pp. (There are more high tea options with different prices).
- The restaurant will adjust to special dietary needs.

“great breakfast place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stumbled on this place after emerging bleary-eyed on a Saturday morning from the Centraal Station, having taken the train in from the airport. It had just opened at 9 am and we were starving, and virtually everything else was still closed.

It turned out this is one of the best breakfast places in Amsterdam. The hardy bread is wonderful, just perfect with some tasty aged Gouda. Or you can try some of their unusual jams, such as pineapple with basil. (Not sweet at all--we even bought a jar to take home.)

We liked it so much we came again the next day. It even opens at 9 am on Sunday.

“Tasty breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We went here for a late breakfast (so late that the breakfast menu had already closed) and weren't disappointed. The food was a bit pricey though. Probably the best way to go, especially during lunch time, is to order a set lunch menu since it seemed to be more value for your money.

- Very neat and cute looking place
