Nice venue, nice interior. Unfortunately when I arrived the staff was nowhere to be seen. I eventually seated myself and when the three waitresses appeared from the back I just couldn't manage to get their attention to order. After about 10 minutes I decided to...More

A good spot for a quick drink, we had a carrot cake there, it was quite good, busy place, I wouldn't go there for a meal as it's not really a typical, nice or authentic restaurant, it's just ok.

We were a group of 2 vegans, a coeliac with a few food intolerances and 1 other. Fantastic choice for us all. The food was amazing. I had the lasagna and it was so delicious- as was the vegan cheesecake. Would love to eat here...More

Nice place. Crughettini and the tomato soup were good. Goat cheese sandwich a bit greasy perhaps. Good service.

The coffee is exceptional and the food very tasty. We were fortunate to have a nice server and the sunniest day that AMS had all month. The only issue we encountered were the wasps outdoors who were as attracted to our food as we were....More

We ate a Burger and a Goat cheese Sandwich and they were really tasty. The waitress was so kind and friendly.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Caffe Esprit is located in the historic heart of Amsterdam. This unique venue is characterised by its central location and its panoramic views over the whole of the Spui. Caffe Esprit is visited by a very varied public: shoppers, business people and students have long known where to find Caffe Esprit. Caffe Esprit has long been known for its extensive menu of delicious club sandwiches, pastas, burgers and salads. The splendid home-made carrot cake and cheesecake have for years attracted a large clientele. In the summer months, the sun-drenched terrace is a delightful spot for enjoying our spendid lunches, a good glass of wine and a small glass of refreshing cold beer with finger food.
