Lunch wasn’t expensive even though the location of this restaurant is great. Food came rather quickly although service was rather slow. There were a lot of customers, but there was still time for waitresses to do other things than serving customers. Food was ok, but...More

Our hotel was very close by and we pass this cafe daily with its great music and cool vibe. Decided to visit for a lazy breakfast on our last day and we were not disappointed. Great music and vibe, reasonably priced- recommend.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
