The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Lovely cafe - ideal!

Beautiful cafe - great range of options for beers, lunches, traditional Dutch options. Incredible views over the canal in one of the most serene areas of the city.

Two other cafes are nearby so even if it’s full there are options to go to.

Definitely recommend!

Terrible service
Jul 2020 • Family
I've lived in Amsterdam for some years and on this occasion I brought visitors here for a beer and a bite to eat. We didn't end up eating due to how rude the person serving us was. We were not made to feel welcome, were spoken to badly and he even shook his head when we asked for more time because what we wanted wasn't on the menu. I wouldn't return and would certainly not reccomend to all my tourist friends who come to visit un future

Come for the pie

Best Dutch Apple pie in town. It’s a tiny place, mostly a bar but if you don’t drink beer, the mint tea is nice. But the pie ... a must.

Rude waiters will ruin your mood! There are other cafes with a much nicer environment, would definitely not go back or advise this one!

For breakfast, lunch, or cafe...
The atmosphere is very warm, with the owner sitting in the table were he always does, there is an old picture of him in the wall.
I really enjoy that place and their food

Astonishing that this place is still here, and thriving ! Go sit upstairs in the very small room - perhaps space for 8-9 people - and look out over the canals enjoying a glass of beer.

Apple pie
Oct 2019
OK, they call it apple tart - I call it a double-crust apple pie. Whatever you want to call it, it's easily 3" high, delicious, and remarkably not heavy. They asked if we wanted schlag on the side - our hearts said "yes", our minds said "no" - hearts won! It, too, was remarkably light.

That's all we ate, so I can't comment anything else.
