Café t’ Smalle

Amsterdam is famous for its “brown” cafés, traditional café-pubs. The Café t’ Smalle, in the Jordaan neighborhood, is one of the oldest and most authentic, with a polished dark-wood interior and stained-glass windows. During the warm months, tables spill onto the sidewalk beside the canal. There’s a small menu of sandwiches, salads and soups, but mostly you come for a beer or cocktail and to experience the old-world ambiance.

Exterior View - Hannekes Boom, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Hannekes Boom

When the weather turns warm, Amsterdam’s hip young things head to Hannekes Boom, an historic beer garden that is tucked away on a pier near Central Station. Rows of wooden picnic tables sit under a trellis of Christmas lights and colorful umbrellas, though on a particularly hot day, expect to see a heavy dose of bikinis and Wayfarers lounging on the floating dock, dangling their toes in the water. The food menu is limited but good and organic (think salads and paninis), but the real draw is the hefty pints of excellent beer and the overall ambiance. On some evenings, there is live music as well as art exhibitions and pop-up markets for vintage wares. Arrive via bike, taxi or boat.

Food at Vinkeles on the Water, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Vinkeles on the Water

If you would like something much more intimate than a typical dinner cruise, One of the Amsterdam’s top hotels, the Dylan, has added a 19th century salon boat to its list of dining options, and a private dinner or lunch on board ‘The Muze’ makes for a very memorable meal. The same dishes that are served in the gourmet Vinkeles restaurant are prepared in the galley kitchen for a group of up to four diners. Reservations can be made via the Dylan.
