It is very typical Amsterdam! friendly and funny people. If you mention my name, Jordy is going to give you a discount for sure. The sandwiches are nice, the soup is always home made and great! A great place to relax for a moment, while walking on the Albert Cuyp market. Always clean and it is where the local market people go, so the prices are good. Nice coffee. It is an experience

They serve very good surinam/chinese food. They are cheap very friendly and the food is always fresh, because they are very busy. But not crowded, so you always find a spot to sit and enjoy your food. This is where Amsterdam people go, not special tourists, so the quality is good.They also do take out.

The Best Place to have a drink ( or something to eat) when the sun is shining, or at summer nights !! The view is spectaculair, the scenery very relaxt, you can sit on the benches or lay down on the huge pillows, or hang around in the swinging chairs and enjoy your drink and your company while watching the view. During the day it is like a city beach ( Only you can not swim in the harbour) You can go by car or take the free ferry behind central station. it is the boat that is most to the left side

Shopping
Very beautiful neighborhood with nice typical shops. Other than the big stores you find in the main centre. In between the canals and beautiful part of the city centre. Even if you do not want to shop, and just see the city, it is worth your time.
