As it was crowded downstairs, we were taken upstairs to a table by the window, which was great for watching the street below. Be aware that the stairs are steep and tough on the knees coming back down. We tried the hartige pannenkoeken speciaal, which...More

Terrible attitude of the staff, rude, mean, slow. But seriously, really rude to the customers. First they place a candle on the corner of the table, then blame you saying you broke it. Don’t come for a long time to take order, you wave at...More

Right in the middle of a shopping district, this cafe is inviting and cozy with two levels and lots of straightforward food. I tried the hutspot, a traditional dish reminiscent of mashed potatoes with a big sausagy-meatball and gravy. Pretty good! Try to sit on...More

We stumbled on this place just off the main drag and very close to the Central Station. It is a pretty honest little restaurant offering Dutch pancakes as well as pastas and pizzas. You're not going to be blown away by the food but both...More

Really liked this cafe in the centre of Amsterdam with a wide variety of food to chose from whatever time of day. I would recommend the pancakes they were lovely

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
