Nice small café in a quiet neighbourhood. They also have tables close to the canal. We enjoyed the friendly and prompt service. It seemed like a lot of locals go there. We tried the chicken burrito and a spinach, goat cheese quiche. It was very...More

We sat outside at a picnic table with a shade cover. We selected a spring beer from a micro brewery which went down easily. In between sips, we munched on bitterballen (deep fried breaded balls with a ragout filling of meat). Totally good bar food!

Three friends and I had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is on a lively street yet is quiet. The music selection and general ambience are excellent and we all agreed the food was delicious!

Even though there are other places popular by their apple pie I believe this is THE ONE. Homemade and locally baked your pie is tall full of delicious apples and the right amount of cinnamon Not busy and family run

Stumbled across this fabulous little pub and eatery when we were here 18 months ago, and managed to find it again. Great service and the most delicious croquettes.

We had a good time in this bar, cold beers, La Chauffe's and normal ones. Upstairs the sounds are a bit amplified when really busy but the staff tries to be up there as much as possible to take your orders. Meals are good, cheese...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

Blaffende vis is `one of nicest and busiest matter of Amsterdam, where eating `can price/quality proportion be terribly nice. For a cafe an excellent assessment of spontaneousness and hospitality! A café in the Jordaan that timeless and comfortable. A happening.
