We ate there because before we were wandering around the vintage market. It is a very good place and the prices are more than reasonable (11€ pp: sandwich deluxe and beer). We strongly recommend it.

We had breakfast here last Saturday and although it is quite a small cafe, they are very efficient and prepare fresh food very quickly. Friendly service and a great variety of food.

This cafe has a nice atmosphere probably because the staff are welcoming. The breakfast was good and the prices reasonable. Worth popping into if you are on your way to one of the walking tours in the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
