Have a nice sandwich and a good coffee beside it. Relax before or after visiting the museum. The waiters are very polite and serve quickly. The sandwiches are big and there is a verity of choices.

Especially if you visit the national museum few meters away it is a nice place for a drink, a coffee or a snack. Always fully booked, day and night but the service is fast, the quality good and the price is very value!!!

As in other places in Amsterdam, you may use the bathrooms without going in to the restaurant. This is a pay toilet with a very nice attendant. Wish more European cities would have this convenience.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
