We were going to the Resistance Museum and stopped here for a toasted sandwich and coffee before going to the museum. Both were good and we wished we felt hungrier because all the food coming out of the kitchen looked delicious. Coffee was great too....More

The atmosphere in this brasserie is excellent. We visited in the morning and enjoyed a good coffee, reading newspapers at the same time. We had a few dinners and on all occasions it was superb. The staff is super friendly. We will definitely go back.

Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
