I quite like this bar, actually, which is surprising since I'm usually pretty underwhelmed by bars. This seems like a nice place to just get off the main Amsterdam streets for a while and have a drink or two. I like how the lights are...More

Had lunch inside - a nice space with high ceilings and well-stocked bar, unpretentious atmosphere (which we like). Food was good and reasonably priced, nice coffee. Seemed to have a lot of local custom including a big family group.

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
