  • To tell you the truth, this café's decoration and its beautiful windows are as important as the taste of their apple pie. If you want, you can have whipped cream with the pie slice, it's 30c euros mor...  read more »
  • We went in this beer lovers to be able to taste its famous pie. We were not disappointed! It's a real treat and the servie is hearty. The atmosphere is amazing at night with all the lights in the scene. The home was more friendly.

  • This is probably the most photographed corner of Amsterdam - where Prinsen and Brouwersgracht cross. 
  • Really cool spot, with nice outdoor seating on 2 canals. Pretty place overall inside. Very small and cute. The staff was nice. Unfortunately, the other patrons although hey were locals were pretty rowdy and rude in general. I got some comments from them for minding my own business and hanging out. I left after 1 pint which was unfortunate. It's not the fault of the place, so I'm not going to bring down my review too much.
  • The skinny old man behind the bar was a real A-hole, I don't mind he having a bad english but he was really not willing to answer questions about the food they had on the menu, what did sizes of the portions looked like etc. After seeing someone with baked potatos and some cheese, we gave it a shot and explained we would like the same thing with some bread cause we were really hungry and all we got was a small plate of 3 different cheeses and spanish procciutto (?). We asked if we would still get the potatos and bread and the guy started to get loud, was rude and laughed at my friend who is vegetarian, saying that we should get the order right the next time. Needless to say, we left hungry and that little plate alone costed us 52€, just outrageous. As someone who's worked with gastronomy I know clients can be really picky, and it takes effort to remain calm. But really, we made our best effort to comunicate, pointing at things but this person is just being a douche for no reason. All I can think of is that he has a problem with foreigners and I just ask myself why is he working there anyways, where most tourists go. The bar is good for having a beer if this man has his day off. He needs to be work at home-office and such
  • Gorgeous brown café with one of those witty Amsterdammers in the bar. Atmosphere alone would've given this five stars, but I was a bit put off by beer prices and there wasn't enough cinnamon on the apple pie.
  • cool little bar for a drink but do not eat here! I heard rave reviews about the Apple pie... it's terrible. it even looked bad but I thought I would give it a shot. Also had a beef sandwich of some sort which was 4 pieces of microwaved meat on a bun and a mustard packet on the side!
  • Nice yet small cafe next to the bridge. Lots of locals there. Upstairs is a large smoking area and outside a small terrace with a great view over the canals. Always a nice to sit and watch the bicycles pass by.
