Friendly staff, great outdoor setting. Had a light beer, toasted sandwich and one of Amstedam’s favorite offerings: apple Pie - crunchy slices of apple, lovely crust. Perfect Amsterdam experience.

We had walked for miles... eaten well and had enough of tourist attractions. We stopped here to take the weight off our feet and to have a coffee. A quaint little place with a very helpful member of staff who spoke excellent English. Clean toilets...More
