We had the smoked chicken salad and it was very good. Bit surprised that the chicken was deli slices, instead of pieces. but overall it was very good. Of course it is more expensive than other restaurants, but considering the area it was acceptable. Lovely...More

The cafe enjoys a fabulous location & atmosphere right in the middle of the Museum quarter. Lovely decor & great buzz with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Their downfall is their service. Having ambled around the museums for hours we visited Cobra Cafe...More

Warm friendly atmosphere. Very busy but still manage friendly fast service. The yoghurt, fresh fruit and granola was excellent and the Poffertjes were excellent. Herbal tea of ginger, lemongrass and mint was very enjoyable. Warm and cosy inside despite the crisp day outside.

Stopped off to get out of the rain. Great little spot for a few drinks to warm up. Good atmosphere and service was good also. Prices were reasonable and food looked good. Will be back again.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
