We used to live around the corner from Cafe Thijssen and enjoy eating here when visiting. Our visit today was comical though, every item we ordered was wrong yet everything we received was quite good. Therefore I must say the food was very good but...More

The location is nice, a little neighborhood place with plenty of seats outside. Service was friendly enough but very slow. The menu wasn't extensive, but the proper Greek salad (i.e., no lettuce in sight) I had was very good.

We had breakfast here a couple of mornings and passed by often (we stayed in the neighborhood) while the evening crowd dined, and we liked it a lot. No frills, cozy atmosphere, good food.

This cafe is an ideal place to sit in the sun and enjoy a light snack (with a good selection of sandwiches and soups) with a local beer. The staff are friendly, the food is reasonably priced (considering the tourist location) and there is a...More

Had an early lunch here, both of us happy with our sandwich. Appears to be very popular with locals and tourists alike. Large for a pub, old and worn, but cozy. No real complaints about service, though somewhat standoffish. Recommended for anyone.

We stayed at hotel Cappuccino and found this café right opposite to it! So decided to try it out for brunch. It was pretty crowded, but we could get two chairs within 10 minutes. Our order for breakfast did not arrive even after we waiting...More

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.
