Cafe Vrijdag has delicicous food (dinner lunch and breakfast). Lots of local people come here because of the nice atmosphere, good food (great menu), nice beers and wines with good prices. On Friday I would suggest to make a reservation as its always busy, (in a good way)

The service is great, everyone is very welcoming. There is a lot of choice in drinks and the food is really good. It's a cafe that is perfect for meetings, afterwork drinks, but also for parties or a simple meal with friends and family.

I love Cafe Vrijdag. I have been a couple of times now for different occasions. Sometimes lunch, sometimes dinner, or just a glass of wine. Great staff, always friendly and really relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for drinks with friends or dinner with the parents.

Cafe Vrijdag offers nice atmosphere, good food coffee and desserts. The kitchen opens at 18:00 for dinner and they serve very good dishes. Prices are average and reasonable. Can be very crowded on Friday's and Saturday's evening

It was raining outside so we ran right in here. We liked it right away, great coffee and cakes! The waitresses here are very friendly. The prices are absolutely normal and they are worth the product you get. The only thing I dislike are the toilettes, not looking nice.:/
