Lunch in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is very walkable, and we spend the days walking around the city, working our way across the grid of streets and canals. Exploring slowly and taking time to investigate interesting looking buildings, shops or cafes is a significant part of the fun of being somewhere new.
We had lunch at a small cafe/bar. Part of the attraction was its ambience, including many original features. It also offered some typically Dutch dishes including their well know pea and ham soup which added to the attraction.
We enjoyed our easy and unpretentious lunch with some beer, whilst outside the February sun shone brightly, illuminating all the fine details of the magnificent buildings that surrounded us. For us, this was Amsterdam at its easy and relaxed best and without the huge crowds.
