yummy but very very overpriced - Edit

I had delicious bread and soup here and had to mortgage the house to pay for it. Ridiculous

Nice drinks, food a bit bland - Edit

This is the fourth of this chain I have visited so far, and is in my opinion, neither the best or the worst. It's helpful to have vegan options clearly marked (with a carrot), but the experience is ruined when the staff are not so friendly and seem to rush customers out.

I had a homemade mint lemonade, which was really fresh which lots of flavour and to be honest the highlight, a glass of wine, and split the mezze plateau and a quinoa salad with my companion. The plateau is a good idea, meaning that customers can choose four patés/spreads to go with bread - we went for hummus, black-bean hummus, aubergine and artichoke spread, but the portion sizes are quite small and there was not enough bread. Luckily it's possible to order extra bread. The salad, with quinoa, courgettes and hummus, was nice, but rather bland.

Overall, this isn't a bad place, but there are better options for service, flavour and value-for-money in Amsterdam.

Pros: labels vegan

Cons: not fully veg

Underwhelming - Edit

We kept passing this place and thinking the neighbourhood looked nice, so decided to stop there for brunch. I chose the banana & soy yoghurt breakfast dish which came with something called "crunola". I thought it would be like crunchy granola, it appeared to actually just be a sprinkling of seeds, on a big dish of plain yoghurt, with two bits of banana and a scattering of blueberries, which was a bit disappointing. All the vegan options looked to be catering to the "health" crowd, whereas I would really have liked a choice to get something a bit more hefty!

My boyfriend, who is vegetarian, had the Belgian waffle with fruit and cream topping. He said the waffle itself was good, but the topping could have been better(though this did come the day after he had a waffle topped with jam and shaved white chocolate!).

The service was relatively quick and competent, although pretty disinterested. The stairs to the toilet were very steep! Not really a disabled-friendly venue, although there was a ramp leading up to the quite crowded indoor seating area, which I imagine would be a help to those with pushchairs.

Pros: Several vegan options, Clearly marked veg*n options, Choice of languages for menus

Cons: Vegan options not very exciting
