Nice spot in the middle of Mercatorplein, nice relaxed place, shaped a little like a smurf house, can't miss it with its red rounded roof. Nice and easy food, fresh, good variety. I come here quite often as it's right ariund the corner from my place. They always have a couple of vegetarian options. You can see the cooks as... More

Cafe Zurich provides good food at at a reasonable price. I recommend the scrambled eggs with chives and salmon. On the menu you have to choose between chives or salmon but I requested both and the waitress brought it. No one had ever done that before. When she took her dinner break I saw that was what she was eating... More

We stayed at the Ramada hotel down the road and didn't fancy the €18 breakfast so we wondered in to town. We stumbled across this place by chance and sat outside. We were served immediately by a kind waitress who took our drinks order and provided us with two menus. To our surprise - the prices were very reasonable when... More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere not what we're used to being British thats why i liked it and the staff were very friendly. It... More

Had the salmon omelette and salmon sandwich with hot chocolate. The portion was generous and the salmon was well-prepared. The omelette was my favourite. It was delish. Hot chocolate wasn't too sweet, I almost ordered a second cup. The interior is well, hipster-ish, and the staff were chirpy. Good vibes.

Stopped by here on the way back to the hotel after an afternoon trekking around the city. Good, cold beer and although we didn't eat, the food that passed our table looked very good and it was largely empty plates going back to the kitchen so I'm guessing it was appreciated! The locals seemed to like the place too which... More

We had there both dinner and lunch. The food is tasty - we had steak and fish for dinner, also nice cocktail, cheesecake and beer. The guy in that evening was very helpful and happy to serve, which I always appreciate in a restaurant. The athmosphere is casual and it's comfortable to enjoy few drinks with friends. For lunch I...

This is a great place for breakfast especially if you are staying nearby. It is just a one-minute walk from a stop on tram route 13. Their (excellent) trademark breakfast dish is the “Zurich”, an open sandwich of meat, cheese, and eggs on toast. It also comes with a croissant and muffin. Other selections were also very good. We (two... More

Located in Amsterdam West on the Mercatorplein. In my opinion everything is very average: the food, the not so inspired staff, the price. Not bad, not good. Ok for a quick bite or a drink.
