We were wandering towards the palace and visited this eatery twice, eating there the second time. They were obviously just getting going, with saws and drills still yammering, but the items were very fresh, you pick them up at each station cafeteria style. It is quick and clean. They need to put in some draft beer, and the pizza guy needs more practice, but this was fun.
Restrooms downstairs.
Sit and eat upstairs.
When our pizza was less than wonderful, the manager sent up a second one for no charge -- this is the right attitude!
This place will do well, the location is good and the tourists are flooding by.
Check it out. Good for no frills dining and reasonably priced.
Bon appetit!

La Place is a pay and get served place and to eat standing. Very fast service, good sandwiches, Croissants and a variety of beverages, with reasonable pricing.

La Place on Kalverstraat was my children's favorite.

Cafeteria-style, simple tables, open space, but great fresh and reasonably priced food.

It's a four minute walk across a classic Amsterdam bridge from the Hotel de l'Europe, one of my 5 favorite hotels in the world.

I have no idea why, who or what ruined this mans day but he was outrageously sarcastic and kept acting passive aggressively for no apparent reason. If the front man of your restaurant is rude , it really just ruins the whole dining experience for everyone (whether or not the food was good or not). If you don’t like people or if you don’t like talking or serving people, don’t work in the F&B industry. The owner of the store needs to survey this guy out.
