“Very enjoyable!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Delicious homemade pea soup, tasty house-brewed beers (a must!). Our favorite was the "white" beer. Friendly, quick service and lively atmosphere.The seats in glass room on street side are a good location for watching the bypassing trams and people. On way out took this pic of the busy cook silhouette in kitchen window upstairs.

“Good for people watching”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Found this place by accident. Got a table in the conservatory overlooking the street and spent a few hours in here people watching. Drinks arrived promptly, the menu is not in English but our waitress told us the range of panini's that we wanted to eat. I had a tuna and cheese one which was delicious and we shared a portion of chips and mayo which were just heavenly! Not too expensive and I would visit again.

“Great for beer-lovers”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This place is excellent for beer-lovers. It not only has a wide and constantly changing range of good beers on draught, the view in part of the pub is great, overlooking the Spui and towards the University Library, with trams floating by. Food is good, plates are large and the servers are always happy to advise on beer and food choices.

“Nice place for brunch on a sunday afternoon”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Found this place while on a sunday walk through the centre of the city.

The staff are friendly and helpful and the place has a nice relaxed feel about it. People of all age groups were dining with a good menu to choose from (split into pre and post 5pm).

We just had a simple onion soup (very good) and club sandwiches with coffee. The location is close to a small art market and a great place to watch the trams and the world go by.

Would recommend it to anyone in amsterdam for a relaxing and good value meal.

“Good place for a beer or a snack”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

It's not the first time I come here when in Amsterdam and I really like the place, and the beer and the location the cafe is situated in. I love sitting in the glass-walled porch and watching people pass by or sitting inside the cafe on the high stools and watching the storm outside.
