Just outside the city centre this cafe offers outside seating at a nice square. The sandwiches and pita was of high quality and at fair price.

We were waiting for our breakfast-two sandwiches-1 hour. We also wait almost 25 to order. Sandwiches should be warm , They were cold. Waitresses were nasty And unprofessional. Too high prices to quality of food.

Service is potentially the worst I ever experienced. Drinks did not turn up. Waited what feels like several days for a couple of sandwiches. Bit of a joke

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
