“Beyond coffee and pastries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

This is the heart of true Amsterdam. Apart from the excellent coffee and pastries (with ice cream in summer and hot chocolate in winter) you can sit there and simply experience what happens when the owner puts her passion in things. Her name is Claudia. As one visitor wondered: "Does she kiss all customers?" as she kissed one of them. The reply given was: "It is rather: do all customers kiss Claudia?" "Well," a third one commented: "They all want to..."
Try the honey waffles, the croissants, the strawberry tart... and sit back, watch and wonder what the magic is.

“A very friendly place with delicious pastries.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

The coffee, the pastries (OMG so delicious), the servers, the two cats who act like they're the owners. It's a very friendly place.

“Wonderful Fresh Baked Croissants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is my idea of breakfast...fresh chocolate croissants and delicious hot coffee. They also have savory pastries if that is your thing. The tables outside in good weather faces the Singel Canal. Same owner for many years and never disappoints! We skipped the heavy hotel breakfasts and walked around the corner to this lovely place.

“Cute Little Bakery a Block From Oude Lutherse Kerk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

This bakery has room for perhaps 15 patrons max. It occupies an acute corner at the intersection of Heisteeg & Singel - windows overlooking Singel Gracht. They sell coffee, tea, pastries, tarts and cakes. There are a few savory items.

We spotted Easter cookies in the window on the way by one day and spent half the next day trying to find it again. It was worth the search. The baked goods and coffee were very good and the staff worked very fast to attend to the many visitors. Nice people, homey atmosphere.
