Just stopped in for breakfast based on reviews and loved this place! The staff is super friendly and the spot is adorable. You can sit on the patio or right inside and still get the feeling that you are sitting outside. I had the Dutch...More

Enjoyed a lovely breakfast here; flat white coffee, juice, creamy scrambled eggs, toast and jam. The atmosphere is quiet, bright and clean. I was only sorry that we didn't get a chance to go back and enjoy another breakfast there.

Visited Kessens on a recent visit to Amsterdam. It's located close to Westerkerk & Anne Frank house. We chose the menu option which included freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, croissant, toast and cheese. All were fresh and delicious.

quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
