“So good I ate breakfast twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I stumbled upon this hidden gem on a sunny Sunday morning, and was blown away by the taste and freshness of everything they served. Having gone for an early morning run I was admittedly quite hungry but the two breakfasts that followed (I had a delicious omelette, followed by a fresh fruit, muesli and yogurt combo) can be attributed as much to culinary skill as my increased appetite. Charming service also, both staff had time for all customers despite the busy late morning / early afternoon period.

Can't recommended highly enough.

“Not your ordinary sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy Sunday and found it very cozy. We ordered the soup of the day and various open faced sandwiches. There were different yet delicious combinations (chickpea and leak soup, grilled eggplant and onions with homemade pesto on toasted bread, open faced burgers, beer on tap). All was fresh and nicely prepared. The bread is thick and baked at an organic bakery. Most of the other ingredients are organic as well. As we waited, we borrowed their Jenga game to play at the table - a fun distraction for the kids. I recommend lunch there for a nice change of pace. (They also serve breakfast, various juices/smoothies, and some slices of tart for dessert.)

“Great food, fantastic service, superb location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you are looking for a nice neighbourhood cafe with great (and mostly organic) food and fantastic service, this is the place. Being a regular hangout for many locals proves that this is a great place for lunch, coffee, a drink etc. Blij offers you a superb location as well on the city's most beautiful canal. Blij means "happy" in Dutch and that is also how it makes its visitors feel both when there and after they leave. A must visit
