This cafe was an excellent place to grab lunch and dinner but is currently closed at this location until spring 2018! At the moment it's a building site. We look forward to it's reopening!

It is like in a cafeteria where you choose yourself what you want to eat. Choices of salads, burgers, pizzas among others.

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
