“Great Neighborhood Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went here on a Monday for lunch, Monday is Fabric Market day on Westerstraat. Crowded of course, but you can ask to share table with others if there is room. Reasonable sandwiches at €5 with yummy bread. This cafe is a true neighborhood "stam cafe" = hangout, welcoming for regulars and newcomers equally.

“Food redemption”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

After all of the terrible tourist eateries in the center this place was a breath of fresh air. It's reasonably priced and still walking distance from centraal. I got fresh squeezed oj, croissant, eggs, ham, toast, cheese and coffee for (i think) 12€. Highly recommended

“Love the vibe, food and drink!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were in Jordaan area for 6 weeks and came to this cafe 4 or 5 times. Really nice beer choices that were surprisingly, cheaper than other bars on the same street. I say surprisingly as it had the best choices of the places we went to, and was by far the best in atmosphere!

Food was really nice, they have a mixed nibbles plate which were delicious...the medium was perfect for 2 to share.

They also do nice French Fries with mayonnaise!

Always bubbling with people spilling out onto the street. Definitely worth a visit.

“A Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We came across this place whilst walking around the city and we called in for a quick snack. The range of beers is good and the lunchtime food choices wide enough for both my wife and I. The young lady who served us was very helpful and friendly. Excellent value too.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

My husband and I had dinner here on our first night in Amsterdam. The menu was quite small - only four or five items written on a chalkboard. They were written in Dutch, but one of the servers was kind enough to review all of them with us in English. We tried several beers which were all delicious. The service was a little bit slow, but we were seated on the second floor, and they were busy! We ordered steak and potatoes, and it was delicious!
