We had just finished a walking tour and had time to spare before our tour started at Anne Franks, so we decided to find somewhere to have something to eat. We could not find too many places available in the near vicinity. We came across...More

We popped in for coffee and pancakes! It is just across from the Anne Frank Museum and they have the Dutch pancakes that we wanted to try - which were delicious, however, the service was not. We were there on Christmas day, so it was...More

This bustling corner café near the Anne Frank House and the Homo Monument is a good spot for an omelette or pancake... especially the apple or the spinach and goat cheese. Yummy dutch apple pie too! Small sized coffee, but that’s typical in most local...More

This cafe is located across the canal in the vicinity of the Ann Frank House. It is very small. They have a pretty good menu and the service was good and friendly.

Quite romantic for an evening meal with all the candles lit on the tables and the lights on in the dark outside. Was pleased to try Hutspot - a Dutch hotpot with mashed potatoes and meatballs. Husband had the same meatballs with salad and fries...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
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.
