“A wonderful place in de Jordaan!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

What a wonderful café near the Anne Frank house and in the Jordaan... The lunch is terrific, the drinks as they should be and the nice staff makes it a wonderful experience. I love to go here on my day off, drink a coffee, read a newspaper or a book and relax a bit.

“Great local gem”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We went to Amsterdam for the film fest and De Prins was on the walk between our apartment and the festival venue so we popped in. SO glad we did. First of all - great beer. Secondly, the split pea soup comes with a ham sandwich on the side! I love this country. Lastly, we wound up chatting with the bartender and we were delighted we did. He gave us the full rundown of where to go (where the locals hang) and what to see in Amsterdam. We avoided most of the touristy things and just walked & took his recommends.

We also met up with him later that night in another bar near our apartment (we found it on our own but it was also one of his recommends) where he drew us this hilarious map on napkins for everywhere else we should go. The bottom line is we went back to De Prins a lot.

“Great prices, good food”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The cafe was recommended to us by friends. Did not disappoint. Relaxed atmosphere and great food at a good price. I can recommend the fondue and apple pie but the other food coming out of the kitchen looked great as well.

“Tasty fondue and fantastic apple pie!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Cafe de Prins was recommended to us by a friend and we were so grateful! We tried the fondue with the blue cheese and as we do our own cheese fondue quite regularly, we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It was plenty of food for two, and at just over 15EU, quite the deal. The apple pie, also suggested to us, was phenomenal. The ambience was homey, certainly not high end (more pub-like), but certainly fit our needs. Service was great, everyone was quite friendly! Definitely give this a try (unless you are a fine dining snob).

“Easy, relaxed atmosphere with nice people and good food”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

A great little neighborhood place! The servers are friendly, and the food is very yummy - especially the cheese fondue! (We ate here twice in five days because I wanted some more of it!) And there's a resident cat who will let you pet him if he's in the mood.
