This cafe is popular and centrally located. Had a nice light dinner of delicious mustard soup (try it!) and caesar salad. Good beer selection and excellent service from an overworked waitress! We were able to snag a table outside across the street from the cafe...More

We found this restaurant coincidentally when we moved to the Jordaan Canal area. Food and service were good. We ate smoked mackerel, which was a fish of the day and fried salmon. I recommend for lunch and dinner.

Stopped for lunch during a plod round the city. Had the club sandwich (very good) and a couple of hot chocolates but noticed they do some good Dutch beers too. Nice ambience and quite cosy. Friendly staff. Recommended.

De Vergulde Gaper was just what we needed for breakfast/brunch in the Jordaan. There was enough choice to suit us all and the omelettes were ideal as well as tasty. The bill for our brunch for 5 people came to just over 50 euros. Good...More
