For around 10 Euros I got a good sized omelette, toast, and coffee. If you are staying in the area, I would suggest at least getting breakfast here.

When in Amsterdam we always start with breakfast at Nielsen. It's unpretentious and welcoming. You can have a croissant, an omelet, a full breakfast or delicious carrot cake or divine apple pie. Great coffees, fresh squeezed orange juice or hor chocolate, you'll be pleased.

Decent without being spectacular. Nice chilled environment and staff friendly. Food was nice but portions sizes small for the price. Excellent coffee though!
