Well located in a quaint suburb, good for brunch (we were staying at the Hotel Alfred, two minutes away). A lovely atmosphere just on the street. Gorgeous yoghurt/granola parfait and fresh orange juice.

We discovered this cafe on the first day of our holiday and visited every day! We were impressed by the friendly staff and enjoyed coffees as well as food each visit. The location was really interesting and it was only a short stroll from our hotel.

This is not in the city centre and it is not primarily for tourists. The proximity of several hotels and B&Bs mean that yes, tourists are to be found here, but this is a very pleasant and tastefully managed café. There are choices of full breakfasts which are excellent as well as standard café and lunch fare. I went here... More

Great little place in Oud Zuid. Good choice of sweet and savoury foods. A mix of locals and visitors all enjoyed breakfast sitting outside. Would definitely go back.

Friendly staff, great menu and lovely location. Very Zen breakfast. Service is slow but not a problem. We have had breakfast here every morning of our stay rather than using the hotel buffet.

We had breakfast here twice in a 5-day stay at a nearby hotel. Excellent choices on the menu, although I opted for the scrambled eggs with avocado and salad each time. Nice place for families and groups, but the stairs to the dining area upstairs are a little steep. The service is very good, with friendly wait staff who know... More

We ran across this cute place on a walk and stopped in for a tea and brioche. The pastries were fantastic and the service very good. The menu for full meals looked very good and seemed to emphasize healthy choices.

I absolutely love this cafe! I seek them out in most cities across the world. Their menu is fantastic. The food is always fresh and amazing and service is great. It's especially good for people with food allergies/intolerance - they have some great dishes that are vegan, gluten free.

Description
Our bread is made today exactly as it was in the beginning: with only organic stone-ground flour, salt, and water, kneaded and shaped by hand and baked in a hearth under the watchful eye of artisan bakers.We insist on the freshest and finest ingredients. If we can't find them, we make them ourselves.Our shelves are lined with the products we've created: the jams and chocolate spreads on the communal table, the granola in your parfait, the coffee that fills your bowl.

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.
