Lunchcafé — Food, Drinks & Sleep
in a nutshell...
Something of a lunch institution, Singel 404 has the best sandwiches in Amsterdam. Not surprisingly, a lot of locals (especially students) know this too, so tables are hard to come by after noon.
If the sun’s shining, tables spill out on to the pavement next to the canal, improving your chances of scoring a seat. Try the broodje (a generic name for sandwiches, made with your choice of bread) with avocado, smoked chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and melted brie. If perfection took the form of bread, this would be it: salty, smoky, creamy, with a touch of tartness. And big enough to fill you up until late afternoon, when it’s time to return for a coffee and a slice of cake …
"Really nice place. The quality of food was mouth watering. Great bagels. Had the tuna melt and it was perfect.
Staff was very friendly, always remaining calm and professional during very busy period.
Not sure if it is possible to reserve a table, but if it is, do so. Otherwise be prepared to wait for 15-30 minutes. It’s worth it though!"
"Super cute brunch place. They have a large menu, so you won’t have trouble finding what you want. Actually, if you like eating everything like me then you will have a hard time choosing what to eat!"
