My friend from Berlin wanted to visit something typical Amsterdam. We wanted to get beer and bitterballen, an ideal combination after dinner. I always pass by this cafe, but this is my first time too. Great atmosphere, all Dutch songs "Lebensliederen or Chansons" and the...More

Nice local hangout. Friendly people. Was raining the first time we went, and thought it was a great excuse to go back there the next day. Everyone makes you feel right at home.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
