Wandered in here one morning en route to Museumplein and enjoyed a coffee, bagel and availed myself of the free wifi. Nice menu, friendly staff, pleasant space, but rather pricey for what you get in my opinion. Granted, Amsterdam is not an inexpensive city so B&B is middle of the road, and an acceptable choice.

A little place of happiness on the Dok, in the airy and large room the view is astounding and the bagels are delicious, vith ample choices of vegan and healty foods. But the real difference are the smiling mak and women serving and helping a lost turist. Great music, power outlets, and everything the tired traveller may need

We popped in for bagels and tea, they have such a variety and what we had all tasted great (both on the teas and the bagels). It does get busy but the turnaround to get a table is quite quick and you might have to share a table as we did, but that was part of the charm!

I happened across this place by accident, and was happy to find I could have breakfast for under 10 euros and be totally full! I had a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese and a coffee - the bagel was absolutely delicious, super fresh & tasty, the coffee was pretty good by Amsterdam standards (I'm Australian, so a hard marker...

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
