Cafe Thijssen reviews
Easily in the top ten of the worst service in A’dam, although the competition is fierce!! Took us 2hrs to eat a few sandwiches, then when the order finally came something of course was missing... more »
Good place to eat. Lots of seating outside. Sunny weather worth enjoying. Will call good decent. Nothing great. Service is really really slow. So if you are in a rush, avoid. more »
Nice local busy cafe. We went back twice in the same day! Had a yummy cheese and tomato toastie and some deliciously different veggie bitterballs with a nice spicy sauce. Of course they have several good local biers to choose from on tap. We tried several. :) We will probably go back tomorrow!
Wowwww super tasty food with a lot choices, and of course friendly staff...
