I’m used to little pubs in west london which have reasonable priced and good quality snacks as well as good beer and board games. This is the Amsterdam equivalent. We stopped for a soup and sandwich. Chilled out place with friendly staff as well.

This is a really nice spot with friendly staff, a nice selection of beers and some tasty pub grub. The barman bailed me out when my phone died, charging it while I had a beer.

Opposite the Royal Palace by a busy road junction, great for traffic and people watching. Had a beer one afternoon after the touristy bit and decided that we would return for breakfast the following morning. The breakfast was very enjoyable, scrambled egg, bacon, and toast....More

Just across the road from the Royal Palace, this is a nice little café in which to sit, people watch and have a refreshing drink before continuing sightseeing. Friendly service - the young waitress, who spoke fantastic English, told me that I spoke very good...More

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
