“Best espresso in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Their coffee is amazing, highly recommended for Italians and others who miss a true espresso. Great central location near Dam Square, old historic building.

“Piet's secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

What is it? Just go there, near the Palace on the Dam square, and experience the full flavor of his house blend.

“A must visit coffee place in the heart of Amsterdam! An experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The owner is passionate about coffee and he is friendly fun personality. The quality if coffee is excellent but the price is half that of other places!
To visit this small but full if character coffee place is a true Amsterdam experience. Forget Starbucks and CoffeeCompany!

“Nicest owner ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

If you want top-quality coffee in a cozy environment and a great location, this is the place. Plus, the owner is simply the nicest Dutch man in town.

“A real place for real coffee..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It is not a restaurant or a "coffee shop" in the Dutch sense of the phrase but a small place that does one thing well - coffee. Its hard to get a real machiatto in the Netherlands. Latte machiatto is the default and even when one specifically asks for a machiatto and not a latte machiatto one gets a latte machiatto. The barista/owner is a serious guy and seemed pleased to serve a 'real' machiatto, as he called it! Very reasonable price, this would be my default place for a daily coffee if I lived or worked in the area.
