“Great Cafe, in a good location with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We ate here a number of times when we stayed in Amsterdam for a short holiday. The food portions were generous and great value. There is free wifi which was useful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was fresh and homemade.

There is indoor and outdoor seating.

We had a great turkey cheese panini here and it is definitely your breakfast stop which you are in the city.

“Rude and cocky young manager talk to patrons like they are rubbish.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Waitress and food all good. Started raining and this rude youngster wanabee manager came running out scolded some customers from opening the outside umbrellas.
This youngster will have to go back to school to learn some manners dealing with customers in a professional manner.
There are so many other great welcomed restaurants available no need to waste money at a place with such bad mannered workers.

hrossiter, Owner at Cafe Tisfris, responded to this review, September 20, 2013
Our manager indeed came running out because a customer was trying to open our parasol with force!
The parasols cannot be opened without a key. Forcing a parasol open will cause a lot of damage to the industrial parasol.
It could also cause harm to that customer involved and other customers.
Thank you for your input

“Scrummy late lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We've just stopped at this cafe for a late lunch. Toasted paninis were great but my roasted vegetable and hummus roll was just delish. Top marks. Also enjoyed outside location- a band was playing nearby when we first arrived but sadly they finished soon after. Reasonable prices too.
