Food and drink
Sandwiches, soups, burgers and fries, eggs, salads, poffertjes (mini, light Dutch pancakes), apple pie. Drinks include cocktails, and gluhwein in winter.
The modern, glass-sided building has Cobra art on the walls and the (rather faded) floor. If the weather's fine, most people opt to sit out on the large terrace, watching the children muck around on the Museumplein's playground, and clamber over the giant Iamsterdam promotional letters.
At the top of Museumplein, behind the Rijksmuseum.
From 5 euros for a sandwich or the poffertjes. Pity you have to pay to use the loos (50 cents).
