We were looking for a decent breakfast and walked past La Grotte and saw the food on offer and it looked decent enough. The place has a Mediterranean feel to it, glittery tinsel everywhere, funky music and the staff were super friendly with decent prices too. We received our food hot, decent portions and with the added bonus of being... More

ReguIar burguers, Iame service. They Iet you smoke inside, but that's it. And nothing cheap. The girI in charge is an eIve, 4'10" and a perfect face, but don't beIieve in the concept of napkins.

I like this place as it's decor makes you feel like your in a forest lol. The staff are friendly, the food was nice, however it took ages to come out. The place is quite cramped but most places are in Amsterdam. You can smoke cannabis here too but cannot buy it. Would come back :)

We love La Grotte. We've being visiting there for about 3 years, several times a year, and have only positive and friendly memories (some are a little 'hazy!') Great food, handmade cocktails and a gorgeous 'treehouse' effect interior make for a relaxing and funky atmosphere. Whilst advertised as a breakfast bar, La Grotte offer meals all day, with very few... More

I used to love this place for some wake & bake back in my younger days and am happy that it's still here :) and the breakfasts are still just as good as they have always been!! Toasties and omelettes are always a winner for me
