Saenredamstraat 67 (at Museum Quarter), Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1072 CD

Offers fresh vegetarian food with vegan options. Food is prepared and served until gone, so it is advised to go early. There is a picnic table for eating in. Reported April 2017 to be fully vegetarian, fish no longer offered. Open Mon-Fri 1:00pm-9:00pm.

Yummy and friendly - Edit

All vegetarian, with plenty of vegan options. Different items to choose from every day. The owner asks you to point to the items in the display case that you would like, and how much you would like of each item. Then you sit at one big table with everyone else eating there, and it's OK to converse, or not (up to you). I loved the baked tofu and butter beans! (Both vegan.)

Pros: Yummy! , Friendly, Reasonably priced

Cons: Small space, so you may need to squeeze in at the

Perfect! - Edit

Very nice place, totally adore this place and the owners. So sweet, talented people!!! It is a very small restaurant with slow food close to the Albert Cuyp Market.
The food is already (home) made. You can choose by weight how much you want of a dish. The food is incredible!!!
You can have to food in the restaurant (there is one table) or you can choose to take away. They have a lot of vegan options. It is so tasty! Price is fair for all the fresh bio ingredients.

Pros: incredible tasty slow vegan food!!!!, great staff, close to Albert Cuyp market

Wonderful local vegetarian / vegan spot - Edit

Amazing veg food made freshly daily. The owner will talk through each dish and you can select a few. The most popular options are too get a little bit of a few different items (e.g., marinated tofu, sautéed mushrooms) and then the price is based on the weight. They also have a great selection of baked tarts made daily, including vegan ones, that are priced separately. I loved the restaurant and vibes so much that I ate there two days in a row.

Restaurant only accepts cash and debit cards (with pin code) - no credit cards.

Pros: Weight based pricing allows you to try multiple it

Perfect cozy little restaurants! - Edit

We were looking for a vegetarian place after few days with too much meat... so we decided to try olive and cookie, and were super happy that we did! The seats are social (by which I mean that you have to share the table with other guests) which we didn’t mind at all, the owner was cooking some delicious pies when we came in and immediately welcomed us. He was super friendly and you could really see how he loved his job. Already 14 years going strong! The food was super delicious and beautiful to look at as well! Some were vegan and some vegetarian but all to die for, even the desserts very delicious!
I will be back next time I come to Holland! Thank you!

Pros: Food, Friendliness, Cozyness

A must in Amsterdam! - Edit

This place is an absolute gem! The chef is a sweet woman who is obviously passionate about the food she makes. The food is so full of flavour and not one item I didn't love. Wish she was in sydney!

Pros: Lots of vegan options.

Cons: None!!

Amazing food - Edit

We went for some takeaway food to Olive and Cookie and it was delicious! The lady took the time to explain each dish and told us it would take a little while to heat up some of the dishes as she heats everything up either in the oven or in pans. As we went fairly early, there was a lot of choice. There were dishes such as the polenta tart with sundried tomatoes and peppers, pancakes filled with truffle, ricotta and walnut and a lasagne made with bread (really lovely, my description is rubbish!). We also had the chocolate cheesecake which was an indulgent treat. The food and the service were great. It can take a little time to get your food, but it's definitely worth waiting for. It's a small place and there's only one large table in there though. When we went, all the dishes were vegetarian.

Delicious food, simple cafe - Edit

This is a very unassuming little place tucked away on a side street. There is just one large table inside but most people were getting take away when I was there. The quality of the food is incredible - far better than you might expect from the simple setting. There is a strong temptation to try a bit of everything and you can pick exactly how much you want of each dish you want when you place your order. As another review says, the tarts are the real speciality (I tried the polenta and sundried tomato one). The prices are by weight for most things and very reasonable. Everything was vegetarian when I went.

Pros: Stunning food, Pay by weight, Choose your own combo

Cons: Limited seating, Food can run out if busy

Could be bumped up from "veg friendly" - Edit

Really this place is vegetarian with a fish dish every so often. Calling it "veg friendly" is misleading. Amsterdam has a horrible trend in "casual eating" where all the food is put out and what you order is then microwaved in front of you (often in plastic containers) ie foodware, Uliveto, Today's Italian, and many more. At least Olive and Cookie reheats the food stovetop or in the oven. The food itself is high quality. The husband and wife team (only one works at a time while the other is with their child) are very sweet and part of the neighborhood (have seen the husband out teaching their kid how to ride a bike). A little on the expensive side (not super expensive but for me I can't eat there too often) but mainly because you want to try multiple things. Quite possibly the best appeltaart in Amsterdam, despite every cafe making an attempt at appeltaart, it usually lacks everything. The roasted root vegetables are great, but easily duplicated at home. The savory tarts are the best part (pear and goat cheese; polenta and sundried tomato, etc) and worth trying.

Inspiring and delicious food - Edit

At Olive and Cookie, the food is simply fantastic ! Freshly cooked,tasty dishes of mediterranean, asian or european inspiration that can vary from day to day. The kind of recipes you would love to try at home. The chef obviously loves his work. He takes the time to explain each dish if asked. The restaurant itself is very small. Simple but warm decoration.Don't come there if you are in a hurry. A sign mentions "take it slow" and the chef means it. My advice : try a big plate with a little of everything. You won't regret your visit at Olive and Cookie, it's a must !

Pros: excellent food, cheap, friendly atmosphere

My favorite veg restaurant in Amsterdam! - Edit

The food is delicious and inexpensive. The food is all vegetarian except for an occasional fish dish. The chocolate cake is fantastic! They only make so much food each day so go early for the best selection.

Pros: fantastic food, convenient location

Cons: closed weekends
