This was down the road from the apartment which we rented and we went there for late supper, breakfast and lunch. The staff were really friendly and the cafe a great place to hang out.

Nice location and cosy interiors. Both for a drink/cafe or a dinner. Fully open kitchen where you can see the cooks at work. We had time to have four beers before the main course came to the table.

I just popped in for a quick hot drink (yum - real mint) whilst waiting to meet a friend - despite just opening for the day (I was first customer), the atmosphere was nice and relaxed. I'd like to have had time to go back in the evening - maybe on my next visit.

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
