    What's good here? Everything. Love the vibe. Great Bloody Mary's. Chicken and waffles with house made hot sauce (which we brought back to the states) and the pork belly Benedict. Amazing brunch!

    Best chicken & waffles! Cozy spot, great for a weekend brunch (but really, everyday works for me here). Everything on the menu is tasty.

    This place was such an amazing place - we had to go back to have brunch here several times. It's placed right next to the canal, has delicious food and drinks + the staff is really friendly. 😋👌

    having brunch here is a party! the staff is super welcoming and energetic. The food is great, try the Monkey Business! Unfortunately they don’t have the okonomiyaki anymore. But overall: amazing

    All around and Rasco are my top picks for brunch here (boozy or not, your choice!) who doesn’t love chicken and waffles with homemade banana ketchup?!? Staff was just as nice as the food

    Great Breakfast and brunch! Had the “All about veggie” and the veggie bowl. Missed the avocado in the bowl though. The hash brownies are delicious, but can’t compare ‘cause I had it for the first time

    Brunch café with a relaxed, cozy vibe. Good service and very tasty food. They also collaborate with food popup groups that provide missed food items in Amsterdam.

    The Rasco chicken and waffle was delicious, a perfect brunch meal. The staff was incredible and not only allowed us to bring our dog but pampered him. We all had such a great time, we’ll be back ASAP.

    Expect a queue around 1pm on Sunday, it's packed. Great food, good portions. But I was surprised to pay 7,50 for a tiny mimosa. Tip for the owners: do something about the ventilation in the kitchen!

    The wild mushroom salad is incredibly delicious! But the place is crowded, the staff stressed me out and it's been chilly bc they insisted to keep the window open. Better reserve a table in the corner

    Cute place with an interesting twist to an anglo-american brunch/lunch menu - guess you can't go wrong with whatever you order.Great chai latte and machiatto, Friendly staff as well.

    Perfect brunch spot! Great coffee and food; try the 'wentelteefjes'! Even without the bacon (and with bananas) they are delicious!!

    This is *NOT* Starring at Jacob but KU Kitchen & Bar West. The Yakuza Chicken Karaage is excellent. And the Torikawa is amazing.

    Lovely place for bruch, english atmosphere and good food. But: very crowded on sunday and some problem with the air system, you'll get out smelling like a tasty burger ;)

    Most of the tips mentioned are spot on, Bloody Mary options, the Benedict was good, and the waffles had a great crisp to them.

    Cute place, nice people, good menu but food was a bit too hyped. Dry waffles and fresh but tasteless ceasar salad. I do recommend the fried chicken. That was absolutely heaven✌🏼

    If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to go because none of the servers will ever talk to you. Feel content as you sit around waiting to order for 30 minutes.

    Wonderful food ideas here. It all seems so delicious, however it kind of disappointed. I guess it's a must try for once. But I won't be coming back unless someone pays for me.

    Love it here! It has a really nice vibe. But wear old clothes because of the small open kitchen.

    I love the eggs, preferably with the pancakes and maple syrup. Amazing. Pity they put 100 ice cubes in your fresh O.J.
