This place is truly one of a kind. Essentially it's a long list of open face sandwiches hand crafted with the best Dutch ingredients one can find. Whether you're looking for savory, sweet or somewhere in the middle this place has it all. Quite small and there might be a wait but it's beyond worth it

Singel 404 is a small cafe located by the Singel River. It's probably one of the best places for having very beautiful moments and also sandwiches for breakfast. ıt's worth waiting for an available table outside by the river. Sandwiches are very delicious. With my wife, it's the first place that we remember when we talk about lovely city Amsterdam.

Breakfast was fair, but the lunch dishes looked very good. Cappuccino was terrible. In fairness to the restaurant, I would definitely do lunch, just skip breakfast.

small and close but the food was great, especially the pumpkin soup. I tried the Zatte beer which was wonderful. We all four enjoyed sandwiches. I had the "Singelclub" sandwich which i especially enjoyed. Three soups, four sandwiches and drinks for E64.55 was a welcome price.

Definitely you can find here some of the best sandwiches in Amsterdam. The price is fair, the service could be a bit better.

My girlfriend and I went for a lunch after a walk through downtown Amsterdam. Lunch was great right next to one of the canals. Great panini. Nice service. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to have an easy lunch.

My wife suggested this place. I was hesitant... sandwiches? What I received would be better described as a mountain of delicious local cheese and salad atop some slices of brown bread. The special of beetroot and goats cheese was great and my wife's sandwich had an incredible tomato humus on it. A great, fresh and tasty lunch at a very... More

Great food, but poor/slow service. Received our food about 35-40 minutes after ordering. Wouldn't eat there again unless it was empty.

The place was full when we got there but they let us order a drink and wait until a table was open. We got in pretty quick and our order was taken quickly. Awesome soup and sandwich and it was more than enough food!

The canal area has so many nice places to have lunch and this is one of my favourites. Great sandwiches and coffee.
