Broodje Bert. The place is tiny and always full... for a reason. When the weather is good they have a lovely slanted terrace. I like the Roast Beef Old Cheese on Brown bread but... they're all amazing.
Van Stapele. All they sell is this one chocolate cookie. It just so happens that it's the most delicious cookie in the world.
American Book Center. A four story all English language bookstore with an excellent section on Amsterdam..
Best Street Market
Waterlooplein. It's the biggest, It has everything.It's lots of fun. Best souvenir? Slippers shaped like clogs. Comfy and funky!
Wijnand Fockink has the most delicious varieties of 'Dutch Gin' - just don't call it gin when you're there! Try the 'Superior' variety. Aged for 2 years in Jack Daniels oak casks! Delicious.
