Its like being in a vintage light and crockery shop, except they serve food and drinks too. Cutesy and hip, this is a nice little place without the tourist crowds.

Truly eclectic, wonderful service, and the food and coffee is perfect. Nothing matches here, and that's just perfect. There wifi code says it all, but you'll have to visit to find it out

Food is uninspired and portions are tiny. 2 fried eggs on two thin slices of bread. Quality of food is fine. They also got one of our orders wrong and repeatedly forgot one tea.

Came here for coffee on a Saturday morning and was packed with people. Service was slow but friendly. Had lots of homemade pastries that look pretty yummy.

Very uniquely styled place to be, with deco from 70s and retro elements in general. Good coffee and deserts too!

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
