The name of this bar/cafe means "Guardian Angel". Popular with the literati since the 70s it now serves up food and cool jazz music (on Sunday) to compliment the booze. The menu offers a good choice of items including appetizers like deep-fried calimari (recommended) and cheese fondue.
The canalside seating in nice weather is very popular, although you can't really hear the music well from outside. Inside it's usually very crowded, standing room only, and very smoky, especially on Sundays.
Good mix of people, Dutch regulars, expats, and some tourists. Sunday is the most popular day when jazz musicians jam from around 4pm to 7pm.
