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.

Have a nice sandwich and a good coffee beside it. Relax before or after visiting the museum. The waiters are very polite and serve quickly. The sandwiches are big and there is a verity of choices.

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
