“A lovely little spot for a light lunch”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We had a light lunch and high tea and very much enjoyed our time. I am not sure if it is the most spectacular place to enjoy tea in the city, but it is cozy and everything was tasty!

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Ate here the day we arrived.
Hubby a bit dubious when we looked through the window and at the menu, but he really enjoyed what he ate. We both had soda bread sandwiches, which were well presented and tasted fantastic!
Would like to have gone back but we ran out of days!

“A new and creative way to enjoy high tea.... highly recommended!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

First time brunch @ Gartine was simply very enjoyable. The service is really nice and friendly, not pretencious at all. While the food (and the drinks!) were absolutely delicious. Lovely variety of tea, perfect balance between different ingredients, cozy atmosphere (not posh at all) and it was all organic. Broad selection of tasty scones and (cheese and chocolate) cakes. Did I mention that the (strawberry) jam is home made..... just like everything else! Very homey Dutch hospitality.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Delicious food made with care”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

The other reviews were correct, Gartine was tough to find! On a narrow street with very little fanfare from the outside, you could walk right by it and miss it. And what a gem you would miss! The atmosphere was warm and spacious, the decor quirky but somewhat antique - it all just felt nice. We got there at 10:10 and were the last table in without a reservation. People were turned away left and right after we got in. I ordered the scrambled eggs on toast with salmon - which was a delight! The bread had a garlic spread on it that was a bit of a surprise at first. The hubs ordered the large breakfast and we thought the French toast was fantastic! The service was friendly and we felt more like we were having breakfast at a friend's house. It was just great!

“Precious”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

This teeny tiny place is perfect for breakfast, brunch, tea time!
Found it randomly today: a pearl compared to the other numerous tourists addresses. Enjoy slow food dishes served in old china plates. Homemade desert was amazing (cheesecake espresso, cinnamon, speculoos)
Highly recommended for a relaxing experience.
Service very kind, and prices are - gosh - very reasonnable.
Warning: get some cash, they do not take credit card.
