“Great place to have a first meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2010

Much cheaper than a hotel breakfast, you can have a bagel and a juice there before start walking around the city.

“Relaxed atmosphere, great food, and amazing coffee make for a nice cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2010

The feel of Bagels and Beans Waterlooplein is very laid-back, relaxed, and nonchalant. You can joke with the waitresses, who all speak english very well, and enjoy your coffee or newspaper to wake up in the morning. The bagels are yummy, especially the Wild Salmon with Chives cream cheese, and the Carpaccio with a sundried tomato bagel. They also have vegetarian and even vegan bagels, Like the tuscan, the mozzarella-tomato bagel (one of my favourites) and the Avocado bagel with hummus in stead of cream cheese (100%vegan). They also have lots of fresh juices and shakes like the 'no stress' and the 'energy'. On busy days it can take a while for the food and drinks to be ready because they make everything on the spot, from steaming the milk to making the cheesecakes and date pies (also very good). But that's alright, because the location is perfect for people watching. All in all, a perfect spot for lunch or breakfast for local and tourist alike!
