Odd mix of household items displayed in a bright & airy two floored place. Additionally - and the real reason many Dutch choose to come here - is the ridiculously cheap coffee, snacks and sandwiches that they serve on the first floor.

Visited this place mostly due to the curiosity of the name which is a common name in Sri-Lanka. It has everything one needs.A lovely place. Took a photo of the name board to share with friends in Sri-Lanka.

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
