outstanding food and service at this always-busy cafe. We were so impressed we returned on our last day. The breakfasts are amazing as is the burger. A great selection of teas and a hot chocolate to die for! We had to wait outside in the snow for 20 mins to get a table but we didn't mind; 100% worth it.

Had a long weekend in the city with friends. We came across Greenwoods just as they were opening up (9.30am) so we dived in for breakfast. The eggs Benedict or vegetarian breakfast with bacon and soda bread slices was really tasty and set us up for the day. It was so good we returned for three days on the trot sampling a different breakfast each morning.

Early arrivals can sit at the bench bar, which overlooks the adjoining canal, and watch the city wake up.

The staff are really friendly too. Thoroughly recommend Greenwoods.

Busy little resturant, full of atmosphere and great food. Varied menu based on traditional English favorites with the magic touch of Amsterdam style.

We visited mid morning on a very busy Sunday. We could not get a table straight away, but the waiters (owners maybe?) of this cosy eatery were very welcoming so we didn't mind waiting.

The place was buzzing, great cosmopolitan mix of locals and tourists. It was great hearing accents from around the globe, all unified through their patronage of a friendly and relaxing haven to spend a lazy sunday.

The food lived up to the atmosphere. I had the full English breakfast, consisting of sausages, bacon eggs, beans, mushrooms and toast. All ingredients and produce were of high quality and delicious. I paid around 8 euros. My partner had pancakes (5 euros) which I had to sample, equally delicious. We also had two pots of tea, which was traditional tea leafs and strainer.

My only issue with the Greenwood Tea rooms was that the staff couldn't enjoy the friendly and relaxing ambience. I genuinely felt sorry for them, yet they were the perfect hosts smiling away despite being extremely busy.

The Greenwood tearoom was definitely worth the walk and the wait.
