The best sandwich of my life 🥰!! This was my first meal to my first trip to Amsterdam & I’m so happy that we found this gem! I had the vegetarian sandwhich and added goats cheese🤌🏼 Definitely recommending this place to my friends and family...that visit the area!More

Very nice team, but even better their "pollo" sandwhich with brown bread. Excellent! Whenever I come back to the city, I'll repeat for sure.

Great place on a corner overlooking the water. The outdoor seating is very nice. I had a Vegeteriano sandwich and an orange juice. Both were very nice. The orange juice is very expensive. Staff was friendly and efficient.

We visited Puccini on a cold February evening arriving at 6pm and looking forward to a pre-opera coffee. As soon as we opened the door we were greeted with "what do you want" - no "hello". We seated ourselves, drank our coffee and left with...a distinctly down feeling. As if we were not really welcome. I wanted to try some of their cakes but as they were on display uncovered I thought better of the idea. Maybe they were having a bad day but I don't think we will be back.More

Excellent vibe and excellent food make this place my favorite for breakfast in Amsterdam. Located at the end of Stalstraat, it is not easy to miss.

It usually looks impossible to get a table at this very popular coffee-and-luch spot, but this time we were in luck! Great coffees, excellent lunch dishes (the pastrami sandwich was fingerlickin' good!), very pleasant and personal service!

Enjoyed a quick drink stop. Had a mint tea which did taste a little weird but good service and my friend enjoyed a banana loaf cake which was dairy free. Would recommend a visit if you’re after a coffee stop by the canals.

We stopped here for a quick bite on the way to our canal trip. Fantastic light lunch sitting outside - delicious, freshly made focaccia and excellent coffee.

A must have Canoli! Love the illy coffee and they also offer vegan breakfast dish if you need one. Awesome.

Delicious light lunch and with weather permitting the terrace has a spectacular view. Right in the centre of town but away from the tourist route. A must whenever you are in town.

Really fantastic. Perfect spot to people watch with great coffee and phenomenal food. Very simple but really well done; the goats cheese salad was elegant and portion size was exactly right. Relaxed atmosphere to watch the world go by.

After waiting for 15 mins and trying to attract the waitress walking past all the time eventually we could have a look at the lunch menu. We were then advised that the waiting time for any order would be over 30 mins. When we preceded...to ask what the reason for this was, the obnoxious answer was that the (new) staff was not equipped to care for customers. We’ve been long term and very loyal customers of this establishment, however it is easy to see that the new management and staff have no regard for customer service. Therefore we will never set foot here again and will recommend it to no-one.More
