We went for an early coffee on the Nieuwmarkt and were looking for a place in the shade. Great terrace! We talked and enjoyed our morning coffees, all the people walking around the square and even the traffic. Never a dull moment here!

Great little bar overlooking the square. Tasty snacks and a great selection of beer. We had the combi snacks - a selection of small deep-fried bites which was very enjoyable.

In the beginning of the evening we walked around the Waag to find a nice terrace. We spotted the corner bench in front of Café Fonteyn. Yes! Waitress was very friendly, great view to do some people watching. And a great conversion with drinks.

In this crowded and very busy place with a nice terrace you can enjoy a drink with a little snack. Friendly service. On Friday we had a view of the interesting local market at the place across the street.

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
