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...

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.

I highly recommend this place. We have been there two times, once for dinner and once for breakfast. The quality of the food is high and the prices are affordable. There is a lot of space to sit (inside and outside). The waiters are friendly and kind. We did reserve for a breakfast buffet, but not for dinner the day before and the staff handled our orders (26 people) astonishingly well.
Drinks too expensive for the taste of the cocktails. Slow service. Good ambiance
