Description: Our bread is made today exactly as it was in the beginning: with only organic stone-ground flour, salt, and water, kneaded and shaped by hand and baked in a hearth under the watchful eye of artisan bakers.We insist on the freshest and finest ingredients. If we can't find them, we make them ourselves.Our shelves are lined with the products we've created: the jams and chocolate spreads on the communal table, the granola in your parfait, the coffee that fills your bowl.

“Favorite Restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

This is actually a Belgian chain, but you wouldn't know it from the decor. I had the salmon open face sandwich one day and the goat cheese and kale omelet on another and both dishes were wonderful. The first time I went there, a nice man offered me his table, as he was leaving, then a woman offered be a blanket since the table was near the door. The espresso comes in a sort of bowl and is a very generous serving. The staff was consistently friendly and efficient.

“Salad a bit tired.Bad value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The outdoor seating and rustic appearance pulled me in.
Good coffee and pastries but poor quality salad at a place that is promoting itself as purveyor of organic and seasonal ingredients. Even has its own cookbook on sale.

“Best place for breakfast or a cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

A perfect breakfast: scrambled eggs and slices of avocado on top of a toast, served with some tomato dip. I also tried croissant and jams. And they have very good sweets: cakes and pies. Check out their website, the food look exactly the same as on the pictures. The place is very well designed also, I liked it a lot.
