“Enjoyable food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I had a ham and cheese toastie from here, it was very tasty though I thought would be more for what I paid but taste made up for it.

“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Perhaps our expectations were too high after reading all the excellent tripadvisor reviews and to be fair the food was cheap, but to my mind distinctly average. I had soup and my partner a burger. It was fine but nothing special. Service was very slow despite the fact that we ate at about 3pm.

“Best Cheese and Sausage Platter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This café was so close to our hotel, we couldn't not try it. The red wine and snacks did not disappoint - what a wonderful introduction to Dutch cheese and bread! The service was impeccable, friendly, and the location sublime. Highly recommended!

“TA Reviewers Know Their Tostis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Wandered in here on a whim on a cold, sunny February late morning for a quick lunch. If we had *bothered* to check it out on TA we would have found all the glowing endorsements to be true! Exceptionally friendly service; lots of variety; great prices; free WiFI; marvelous corner location for people watching as you eat; clean WC downstairs... what's not to love? Daily special was "Snert" - thick, savory split-pea soup (more at "stew" than "soup") with mild sausage. Add an espresso and the total lunch came to €7. If snert isn't available trust the other reviewers and try the tostis or the meatballs.

The main reason I wanted to write a review of this place is the Chicken Sate Toastie because it is one of the nicest sandwiches i have ever eaten. Lovely atmosphere, Lovely staff. Good prices.
