“Finally--a decent salad in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

First night spent around a hundred dollars trying for some fresh and real food in so-called "good" restaurants. Could not find anything that resembled a fresh and wholesome salad. Next day got a tip and headed over to Dwaze Zaken. The salad was fantastic and not too pricey. Lovely environment--soft jazz, charming environment. What might have kept me away was the "Jesus Loves You" neon sign atop the building. Fortunately that's about all anyone had to say on the subject and there was no proselytizing or evangelizing. Just a great space and scene. What kept me from five stars was the price of a (small) bottle of sparkling water--2.9 Euro. Ridiculous.

“Enjoyed a Grilled Brie while watching people passing by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

My first time in Amsterdam and I found this little cafe while wondering around in this amazing city.
The food I ordered was actually from the lunch menu but they were kind enough to serve it for dinner for me. The grilled brie came with walnuts and rucola on bread, staff is friendly and atmosphere is pretty relaxed - after reading reviews I am only upset that I didn't have to use the bathrooms.

“Good place for lunch and people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Good place for lunch; nice soups, sandwiches and salads. The location is right on the corner - so easy to find. Like many places, they have wifi so if you are alone and want to surf the web while eating this is perfect. Everything is fresh and organic. I had a deliciousl quiche with pesto and pumpkin seeds.

We went there for breakfast and missed it, but we were not dissapointed as the sandwiches were very good, and the service was excellent.
