In the summer it isn’t hard to find this café. Just look for the huge terrace next to the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) overlooking the Dam. You’ll have great views of the palace and all of the usual bustle on the square, but bear in mind that you’ll also pay a little more for your sandwich, salad or burger given its prominent location. That said, the uitsmijter with roast beef was one of the best we’ve had and that’s saying quite a lot. The interior is surprisingly modern with sharp lines, a grey and black colour scheme and shiny, silver upholstered pleather chairs.
