Me and a friend decided to visit the cafe fro breakfast and wow was i delighted we picked there. Greeted by friendly staff who were so helpful and nice. Waitress Barbara served us and honestly was the best waitress/waiter ive ever been served by anywhere...ive been! She was nothing but nice and helpful and full of happiness! She came and had a talk with us and it really felt like we were locals and not strangers from a foreign country and gave us some recommendations for things to do in the 38C heat. As we were leaving we helped them bring some drinks upstairs and we were well looked after and even got a free ice cream! Would recommend to anyone, thanks so much for you hospitality barbara and staff (who I didn’t get the names of) you will definitely be the talk of ireland when we get back!More

We had a wonderful time here. It is a cosy cafe with plenty of terrace space. The food and drinks are excellent but what really makes this place special is the staff. They are welcoming, helpful and very friendly.

A friendly and welcoming atmosphere, great service and beautiful setting where you felt a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam rather than 10 minuted North of Centraal Station across the water. Will definitely visit again as the food looked delicious but...didn't get time to try it.More

If you’re looking for a good place for some authentic foods! Then cafe Ons is the perfect place to be at. The staffs are so lovely and so are their foods. The foods were so lovely that we as a couple had to revisit for...another dinner date!! - A must food order from this cafe would be ham burger and jalapeños Terriyaki satay beef!! Absolutely loved it😍More

My partner and I had a nice, relaxing lunch here. The cafe is located in a really quiet, charming area by a canal. We ordered veggie burgers and fries which tasted fresh and flavorful. The people who worked there were also very sweet and helpful!

Visited Amsterdam on a short holiday and this place hands down was the highlight to our trip! The food and drinks were absolutely wonderful, and the staff were always friendly and welcoming. Very reasonably priced and with a relaxed atmosphere I couldn't recommend this place...highly enough. Thank you, cafe Ons! I hope I get the chance to visit again in the future.More

Cosy place near the ferry in Noord. Me and my friend had a cocktail and brunch (scrambled eggs). Was okay! Dish was a bit too little for our appetite but the bloody mary was great! Diverse menu and enough choices. The staff was a bit...awkward en kept us waiting for quite some time.More

This a bit middle-of-nowhere Amsterdam cafe in Amsterdam North(Noord) has the best hamburger in all of Amsterdam. I ate here just by coincidence and now whenever i visit Eye film museum for a movie, i drop by and eat the hamburger. Unbeliavable quality and taste.

We visited the Noord neighbourhood on our last day and visited Cafe ONS for lunch. Immediately impressed with the look of the place, great service and surprisingly reasonable prices. Best lunch of our visit! Definitely worth the short ferry trip over from the hustle of...the city.More

We visited this place because we were starving and ready to eat anything. Boy were we happy with what we got. The food was amazing and the service was good. The place has good vegetarian options, a wide variety of snacks and a good selection...of drinks. Definitely recommend if you are in North or Central Amsterdam (it's only a short walk from the ferry stop).More
