    Loved the hot chocolate and the fact that the extremely friendly staff refilled our glasses with water ( without asking for that). Good job girls!!! 👍🏻👍🏻

    This place is excellent. Delicious decaf coffee and fresh tea. They put two tables together for us and we’re kind and helpful. Great music at a gentle volume made Kessens perfect for a quiet break.

    Must visit. Wonderful little cafe in Jordaan. Cosy atmosphere, beautiful environment, AMAZING CAKES. They’re from Holtkamp and they’re out of this world.

    If you're by the Anne Frank house and need lunch, this should be your stop. I ordered the salt steak sandwich with a side of croquettes, it was incredible.

    Great cafe for catching a break from the hustle and bustle in Amsterdam. We got the rillette and the steak sandwich. The rillete is good and the steak sandwich was to die for! Recommended!

    Very minimalistic interior with friendly server! Coffee and tea come with a mini friand pastry. Yogurt with granola and fruit is deliciously crunchy and filling.

    Good soup with plant milk but somehow it is served with butter. Make sure to tell your server to not bring it if you want a vegan option
