Snack at Foodhallen
Food halls ... All the cool cities are doing it, and Amsterdam is no different. Travel west of downtown and walk along the quirky canals of Amsterdam, taking time to see the exclusive houseboats. Ideal for people who can't stick to only one meal or who need a lot of choices, Foodhallen provides food stalls with a selection of recipes and recipes. For a small snack, stick to the Jabugo Counter, where you can grab a paper cone filled with Jamon Iberico imported from Spain. At Foodhallen you will also find many good shops for your morning shopping.
Lunch at Restaurant De Kas
Restaurant De Kas is situated on the outskirts of town in a suburban neighborhood, but it’s only a fast Uber ride away and it’s worth it. How much can you dine in a renovated townhouse? With on-site gardens offering ample vegetables, De Kas makes full use of the term “farm to table.” At lunch, you will have the chance to taste their small plates and entrances from the price-fixed menu. Each dish is basic but colorful and beautifully presented, combining home-grown and local produce.

Afternoon tea at ‘t Blauwe Theehuis
Stretch your legs after lunch by walking around Vondelpark, conveniently situated at the entrance to Amsterdam 's famed Museum Square. You'll find the Blauwe Theehuis in the center of the park, or the Blue Teahouse. Founded in the 1930s, this beloved café is shaped like a flying saucer and provides plentiful outdoor seating on its multi-level patio.
Afternoon snack at Pompadour
You deserve to treat yourself to something good after all this walking. Swing by Pompadour, the delicious confectionery of sweet dreams. Truffles, chocolates, marzipans, cakes — anything your sweet tooth wants can be found here. More than just a store, though, Pompadour has a beautiful café that helps you to rest your legs while you indulge.
Dinner at Waterkant
This place, wedged between the monstrous concrete parking garage and the Singel river, is easy to overlook until you note the strings of bright outside lights hanging on the patio. Waterkant bills itself as a restaurant in Suriname. In fact, dishes from the former Dutch colony in South America are on the menu, such as Surinamese buns filled with salted codfish, snake beans, pickles and sambals.
