Great coffee, ice cream and waffles, and spotlessly clean. Wish we'd gone earlier in our stay to try more.

My wife and I frequently jump on the ferry and spend a night or two in Amsterdam simply to relax and gorge. Metropolitan quickly became our favourite digs for coffee and anything sweet. If you can imagine it, they'll serve it!

The espresso? First allow me to brief you about myself; I'm the world's biggest (biggest!) coffee snob. I could elaborate but to save time, you can just take that as a fact and so when I say that Metropolitan makes the best espresso in the world, you can take that as a fact too.

Order yourself an espresso (with a glass of water & ice, since that's how you're supposed to drink espresso [see, coffee snob]) with a cinnamon waffle topped with cherry ice cream and I promise you, really promise you that nothing else will be on your mind for the following 5 minutes.

Who said you can't buy happiness?!

This place was so good we went twice in one day! We had the chocolate gelato in a cannoli and a hot belgian waffle with caramel the first visit...the gelato was amazing, could have skipped it being served in the cannoli....had a bite of my husband's waffle and it was sooo good, we came back later that night and had another. They also have a wonderful selection of chocolate but, at that point, we had used up our sugar allowance for the day and then some...but it was delicious....good waitstaff.
