On a side note before I review the shop I had to laugh at the fact that TA asked me "Was this the best meal you have ever had at a restaurant?" ... I didn't eat 'food' here but it did give me some serious case of cottonmouth munchies...
Stopped by this place on my first ever visit to Amsterdam with my gf and a close friend, we had spent the evening wandering the beautiful canals and lane ways. We had tossed a coin on whether we would spend our last night ripped or not, I'm glad the coin landed on the Queen's side.
Venue was almost empty apart from two other couples when we arrived, so we were greeted at the door by the manager - very helpful and accommodating, and he was very patient considering one member of our trio was a little apprehensive at the items on offer.
We ordered a hot chocolate, a capuccino and a tea, and I have to say my hot chocolate was delicious - in fact one of the best I have had in a long time. We ordered some mild accompaniments and mild was definitely an understatement.
The venue itself is swag, with clean tidy new furniture inside and out, as soon as a patron left the shop the manager wiped down the tables and chairs immediately and cleaned away the plates - hardly science for a food and beverage venue but as someone who has worked in the hospitality industry in the past it is always nice to see attentive staff.
I am not sure of the previous reviewers experiences with the change in decor etc but myself, my gf and my bestie were delightfully pleased with our visit and I would recommend any traveller or local to stop by at least for a delicious coffee.
