With two vitrines loaded with cakes and pies, a counter with a hundred colors, paintings and drawings, fridges and a kitchen, Alice in Wonderland would have called this place home. Music playing in the background, happy people having their morning coffee... I chose a selection of four cakes and sat to enjoy them.
Inside, a chef prepares the quiches and tarts in front of customers. It seems food safety measures are not a priority in Amsterdam. No gloves and no separation between the kitchen and the walking clients, looking at him working is close to disgusting. Spilling sauce on the couches, you don’t want to be the next customer to sit on them.
I loved the vibes but can’t say the same about the food. The chocolate cake is dry, the lemon poppy seed cake is even more baked, the bread pudding is unappetizing and too complicated, but the zucchini lemon cake is good. I enjoyed my coffee and continued my discoveries around the city.
I’m not sure how I ended up here; this place is deceiving.
