Most typical place to enjoy local "fast food". Broodjes met boter croquet, highly reccommended. Will definitely visit again. Very easy going personnel, food quality not at the top but worth trying it. On a scale1-10: 8/10

They have multiple language menus. Its a busy place, but fast and well worth it. Best Kroket and classic sandwiches in the city center.

This place is an absolute gem nestled away in Amsterdam. We loved their croquettes with and without a roll and most definitely with mustard. The service was amazing and the staff and friendly and helpful!

This place has a bunch of snack bar options. The croquettes were awesome! Definitely recommend. Cheap eats such as small sandwiches. They have a pretty long menu but have it in a bunch of languages so ask the people at the counter for one in...More

...but COME THE FCUK ON, it's the 21st century and they won't take credit cards. WTF. And then they'll announce to everyone very loudly in Dutch, "Look at the tourist with his credit card!"

It doesn't get much more Dutch than Van Dobben.This famous typical Amsterdam deluxe lunchroom is the meeting place of artists, soccer players and many other locals. Its Van Dobben croquette is famed far beyond the city limits. Voted number 1 croquette in the world.
