“"Always a pleasure"”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

One of my favorite breakfast/brunch places. The food is always fresh and wonderful. In all the years we've been going I've never had a bad meal. It is a little on the pricey side for breakfast, but the coffee is bottomless and the service always kind and friendly. I only eat from the breakfast menu because the Eggs Benedict are a true favorite, and my children adore the Croissant Beatrix. Eggs are great any time of day!

“Great sandwich and beer place”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Gourmet original sandwiches, good soup and a great beer selection. They also do waffles that are scrumptious. Staff is extremely friendly. Four minutes before closing on a Sunday, they invited us in. Most places would have told you to come back tomorrow. Go there for breakfast or lunch.

“Sanitation Issues”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Our group recently went to lunch at Café Amsterdam and it was a disaster. Two of the four people left without having lunch due to issue relating to sanitation. The first issue was the personnel were stacking salads on top of each other so that the unsanitary bottom of plate was touching the food. Two people who ordered hamburger; one hamburger had a hair in it and neither of these two would eat the hamburger. The owner agreed to take off the hamburger that actually had the hair in it but was argumentative and refused to take off the other hamburger either those it only had two bites out of it. She was belligerent and said she would pick through the uneaten hamburger to see if there was hair in it which is too gross to even think about. Needless to say, I won't be going back to this restaurant ever again.

“Sunday breakfast”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Some friends were here on a layover on their way to Hawaii so we headed on the recommendations from others. Arrived around 10am and did not have to wait, got really fast service. We had the Eggs Benedict and it was very good and the potato home fries were yummy. It's decorated like a outdoor cafe and has a lot of character. Looks like a great place with lot's of choices for beer for another time of day visit.

“Disgusted with how female owner talks to her staff.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I have been visiting this long time restaurant for many years, through the past and present owners. Always been higher priced for what you get. However, I like the food list offered, love the bar area and many beer choices. It is a nice atmosphere. Great chef. However, I will no longer come to the place as I have tolerated hearing the female owner berating her employees far too long. Today was the last straw for me. I am disgusted with how she treats her employees, how loud and verbally abusive she is to them and I no longer wish to hear her yelling at her staff while I am in the restaurant, having a meal. Cannot recommend this spot with so many other great Alaskan hangouts. What a shame.
