Loved it. On our first visit we sat outside along the canal and took in the scenery. Second visit I sat inside and it was just as lovely. Cafe wasn't crowded either visit but had a nice amount of fellow patrons. Good beer. Cheese platter...More

It's quite a simple place but very lovely. conveniently located at the beginning of Brouwersgracht at The Jordaan. You should try the burgers and fries. Absolutely delicious. There's a very lovely waitress there called Rosanna. You should keep an eye out for her. She was...More

Had lunch inside - a nice space with high ceilings and well-stocked bar, unpretentious atmosphere (which we like). Food was good and reasonably priced, nice coffee. Seemed to have a lot of local custom including a big family group.

The food wasn't bad (although some drinks I ordered got forgotten) but I was really shocked and offended to find a very offensive and sexist ad in the women's bathrooms with a cartoon character saying "something smells fishy and it certainly isn't fish". WTF!? I...More

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
