Café Wildschut

It’s debatable which is the most famous Museum Quarter institution: the Rijksmuseum or Café Wildschut. The latter’s large terrace, which seems to have its own microclimate of non-stop sun, is the place to be for beer, hapjes (snacks) and peoplewatching. The interior offers just as great a view while you enjoy their stellar lunch or dinner menu. ROELOF HARTPLEIN 1-3 CAFEWILDSCHUT.NL

The city’s hipsters gravitate towards this rustic Italian-style hotspot. The wafts of freshly-made pasta coming from the open kitchen are worth putting a toe in the door alone, unless you’re up for some more adventurous culinary treats like a tarte tatin with shallots and Fourme d’Ambert cheese, or have an appetite that only their whole roasted suckling pig can sate.

Seventeen years ago, fair-haired pals Femque and Janneke started creating painted crockery together. Their fun and occasionally cheeky style went down a storm with the Dutch populace and was soon picked up by big department stores, and Blond is now an iconic Amsterdam brand. Their colourful, girlish designs embellish everything from teapots and mugs to makeup bags, wallets, and even pet accessories. GERARD DOUSTRAAT 69 BLOND-AMSTERDAM.NL
