The feeling from this very sympathetic cafe/bar was very worm cosi place to be. We went there for lunch break and had sandwiches and a glass of detch beer! Very good service and draft beer and the food was fair enough!

The location is nice, a little neighborhood place with plenty of seats outside. Service was friendly enough but very slow. The menu wasn't extensive, but the proper Greek salad (i.e., no lettuce in sight) I had was very good.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
