“TRY THE DUTCH APPLE CAKE”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The cafe was very busy. You can order food from a short order grill or you can select something from behind a counter with deli items. I chose the Dutch apple cake and I was blown away by how delicious it was. It had firm apples with perfectly sweet topping. If you go here and you like apples, pie and cake, you should try it.

“European Service Arrogance”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

In America we are used to service with a smile. In Europe it is service with a certain level of arrogance depending on the servers personality. Was there for breakfast this morning (Sept. 1, 2013) one waiter and one waitress competing who can be more arrogant!
My wife asked for a glass of water, the waitress, after about 3 minutes came by with a glass of water and a beer for a table next to us, we asked for our glass of water and she stood in the middle of the restaurant waving her hands and loudly syaing that she is trying to serve every one! few minutes later the glass of water came in...at the end I asked for the bill and the male waiter had the guts to ask for a tip!
At an airport, usually your choices are limited so you have to live with this..food was mediocre

“A nice break.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

While waiting for a connection this was a good place to have a drink and people watch. From the second floor you get a good aerial view if you sit at the tables overlooking the stores. Good beer and good service!

“Good food”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Don't taje breakfast at home, or in your hotel.
Instead eat out at Café Amsterdam at the airport.
Enough to share

“Complete menu”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is probably the only restaurant after imigration that offers a menu with complete meals. Yes, you can buy your small snack or sandwich, but this place also offers T-bone steaks and other larger portions. This is sort of my regular stop when I have an evening flight out of Schiphol as it offers me the better choice in meals.

The atmosphere is of an 'bruin cafe' with very friendly staff and quick service. Prices are of course not on the cheap side but the quality and service is well worth it. Even just for a coffee sitting at the reading table gives you an idea of the atmosphere. And for smokers, there is a smoking room in the back.
