Had some breakfast at Café Koosje, the food itself was quite delicious (yoghurt and muesli) and it wasn't too expensive either. The service however wasn't the best but pleasant enough.

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
