I ordered the toastie with goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, thyme, and honey. I also got an iced coffee with caramel syrup and asked for it to be made with skimmed milk. They did not have skimmed milk (only whole) and a picture of the toastie...is included. I was expecting something different.More

Disappointed in the breakfast but the coffee was nice. I ordered a toastie that was described to have goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, thyme, and honey. From the picture you can tell that the goat cheese spread was scarce and I couldn’t taste the thyme. There...were two bits of roasted tomatoes. I don’t normally drink coffee but ordered an iced coffee, which was nice.More

We are very sorry for this. I think the kitchen guy didn't sleep well. I hope to see you again, we make it up to you.

Stopped by for a ice cold Piña Colada smoothie and some appeltaart. Cafe is run by a friendly Dutch couple. It is sad to see the Rif Fort is currently so empty with guests, this cafe keeps the area alive with a small terrace.

We returned several times to this cafe for a late breakfast or early lunch. Service was always pleasant. Baguette sandwiches were generous and beautifully presented. Coffee selection was excellent. I had a hard choice between coffee or a smoothie.

I got the baguette with melted Brie and honey, it was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. Beware the birds are vicious.

We have visited Curaçao on cruises 4 times and every time we go we cannot wait to go to the Rif Fort and have apple pie at Douwe Egbert! One of the highlights of our trips. The service is excellent and cannot day enough about...the pie. We are going to be there again in November and hopefully will be able to stop by for pie more than once. This time we are going to ask if we can bring some back on the ship!More

The location is great. The cafe is located within the RIF Fort in Curacao. There is no indoor area. There is a counter where you can order from or there is table service. Seating is outside in the courtyard and there is often live music...being played in the evenings. The menu is geared towards coffee, breakfast, brunch, and lunch, but we saw them open for drinks in the evening too. We stopped there for a quick brunch and enjoyed the smoothies and ham and cheese baguette sandwiches (bread was very fresh). The food was delicious. Service was ok though ran on island time and wasn’t overly attentive. However, we would go back.More
