My husband and I came here for breakfast. It was terrific! It is very busy with locals and tourists. Service was good and the food was delicious. It is very close to our hotel of choice in Amsterdam, so we will be back in September!

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

We are a small cosy espressobar, we not only serve coffee but also breakfast, lunch and delicious pastry. We work with local products and home made cakes, soups, dressing, pesto, tapenade and juices. All our sandwiches and salads are "cook to order", so no pre made things everything fresh.
