I had a breakfast with coffee, juice, eggs, beans and bread. Everything was very good, including the location. I paid 24 euros for everything, which was a little expensive in my opinion. It's definitely possible to find somewhere less expensive in Amsterdam.

This little cafe occupies a strategically located corner near The Anne Frank House. My wife had the ribs/fries/salad special, and I had the same but wid cod. The food was good and the staff was friendly and attentive. The price was reasonable.

We stopped here for a quick dinner. The Hanche was fantastic as was the spaghetti. They had a caramel/vanilla ice cream sundae that was very good. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

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
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
