“Broodbar great any time of day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

They say that the Netherlands is a great place for people who like to have a leisurely brunch. We discovered this small, sweet coffee shop/cafe and went in to get warmed up with a hot chocolate. (It was January) But we returned for lunch because the food and atmosphere made us feel like we were in a local hang-out. There was a nice mix of tourists from different backgrounds and descriptions, though mostly in their 20's. Food was excellent quality and prices were reasonable. A good find, fairly close to the Dam, but it felt much less touristy.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Me and my girlfriend visited here after an extremely long bike ride that day, I became light headed so we thought we would just stop anywhere for a bite to eat and a drink. What a place! We both had a ham and cheese toastie and shared a quiche Lorraine, well, it was so delicious! Everything is home made and to such a good standard! We had the 3 plates of food & a few drinks and it came to 20 Euros so can't complain about that too! The staff speak perfect English too. A must

“Little gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We were visiting Amsterdam for the day and stumbled across this little cafe, it's was lovely and one of the highlights of our trip! Had the goats cheese, walnut & honey toasty on rye bread OMG! It was delicious hands down best toasty I've ever had. I have tried to recreate this since returning home to Scotland but got nowhere near how good Broodbars was. We also had the carrot cake and lemon meringue pie which was probably the lightest most refreshing lemon meringue I've ever had! Also try the lemon tea it's awesome, I've had lemon tea in NYC, Turkey etc and this one beat them all hands down! Honestly if I was visiting the city again I would defo be visiting this little cafe again. Lovely food, lovely staff and a great place to watch the world go by!!!
