Enjoy a slice of Dutch Apple Pie and coffee at a century-old "brown cafe", a popular haunt for politicians and creatives since the 1920s, and savor Amsterdam's popular street food: herring and kibbeling from a family-run stand that's been a local favorite since 1980.

Savor Dutch classics, bitterballen, and stampot, in a cozy eatery that was once a Dutch painter's home, accompanied by a refreshing Jenever.
