“When you see this place, you probaly think I am crazy to recommend it. But really, the eggs sunny side up witch cheese or ham or bacon are the best of Amsterdam. The grilled cheese sandwiches are the best of Amsterdam too. I am really not kidding. The coffee is probaly the worst of Amsterdam. Just so you know. Very Dutch, very local. I do like it for lunch or breakfast (from 11:00 on). When there if a football match the place is cramped. kinda fun tho. ”
