We went there for a coffee and later for dinner. Food is good, prices are ok too. Gezellig (cozy) place in the beautiful neighbourhood of Jordaan, two blocks from Prinsengracht and Anna Frank's house.

Fab little place that serves great food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Free reading material and Chopin with your breakfast croissant. What's not to love?

We were going to head to the Pancake Bakery, but at €15 a pancake we thought we’d give it a miss. We found Spanjer instead and had a great bowl of soup, hot dog and cheese toastie. All great food and great value.

Great evening meal in very relaxed, informal atmosphere with friendly staff. Food was great (vegetarian ravioli, two burgers and ribs) and my husband reckoned our sons ribs were the best he had ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit
