Apparently you haven't experienced the city until you have really explored it on a bicycle. Well on this particular Sunday we had no intention of over working ourselves. Don't fret though I am back in Amsterdam next month with enough time to go Dutch - cycling on the Dutchies that is. On this visit with a little time on our hands we made a short stop over in in the capital for a visit. More precisely, the Mr and I ventured out into Central Amsterdam for a brunch date. Amsterdam can be pretty busy and sometimes a tad too crowded for my liking. If you want a quite moment with a loved one, its quite easy to find a spot in the backstreets, and so we did. After strolling through the quite parts of the city and admiring the many spots of Street art, cutely parked bikes and strange combination of shops built into churches that also sell pot was rather amusing. Yep! I was somewhat puzzled too.
Long strolls in Dutch lanes and passageways and we soon settled our eyes on De Drie Graefjes, a cute little cafe off Dam Square. Small with a cosy feel to it, a spectacular array of cakes to accompany any tea was just what the doctor ordered this on this bright Sunday morning. They have one of the most amazing cheese cakes I have ever tested. Just right, not too sweet and not too rich. Just perfect! You should also try their aromatic mint tea, served with real mint and not the dried cheap kind either.
....Nothing more I could ask for than endless tea and coffee cups sipped over one to one conversation... The perfect Sunday brunch in a beautiful sunny Amsterdam. Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday?
