Don't leave Amsterdam without trying a pancake or a quiche at Downtown lunchroom. Friendly staff and good prices.

My girlfriend and I really wanted to have a good breakfast on our very last day in the city, and we found this place by accident, wondering around the city. We were warmly welcomed inside and were greated by the lovely host, who immediately offered us a cup of coffee on the house for each one of us. Both breakfasts... More

My partner and I visited here for breakfast one morning. We sat outside the restaurant and the staff were extremely attentive. The man who served us was extremely pleasant, polite and could not do enough for us! He made our experience very enjoyable. We ordered bacon and cheese pancakes, I had a coffee and fresh orange and my partner had... More

I've been coming to this coffee shop for over 20years and they still use the same apple pie recipe. It's delicious and must be tried. I recommend it with cream and a coffee, whilst sitting out front watching the world go by and soaking up the sun. Hope to come back soon 😎

Cozy cafe in a wonderful location. I really enjoyed the BLT and the apple cake, but the best part was the friendly atmosphere that was undoubtedly facilitated by Mateen, the cheerful manager who also serves you. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quick lunch or a tea/coffee.

We just had a wonderful lunch at lunchroom Downtown in the centre of Amsterdam, less than 100 meters from the Flowermarket. The burgers with french fries and coffee latte tasted delicious. A very cosy place with very reasonable prices and friendly service. We lunch here regularly. Recommended!

If you want a small cafe with good food and drinks and at reasonable prices then this is the venue for you. This is my first place to visit when in Amsterdam for brunch, a free toilet and gratis wifi. A great place to rest for a while.

Small place with the owner and one waitress serving lunch. Not busy so can't speak to that but I sat at top level with nice view, and there are seats outside. I had the super deluxe (see pic) which was quite good. The side salad is actually good with fresh ingredients and tasty dressing. One of the cheaper meals I... More
