A View From The Top


The View From The Cafe of Amsterdam

After a day well spent aimlessly wandering around the city, it seemed fit to have a little down time that would also incorporate a little coffee as well.  See the thing is that when you’re in Amsterdam, you don’t visit a coffee shop to get that shot of java you’re looking for.  If you’re actually in the want of coffee its best that you find yourself a cafe and that’s exactly what we did as the last thing anyway needs in the middle of the afternoon is a little space cake action.  The truth is, the night before we had learned of a cafe that provided amazing views of the city and so half by memory and half by fluke, we retraced our steps and found ourselves climbing a winding staircase to the cafe at the top – yes, we were the fools that made the mistake of getting off crowded elevator on a lower floor than we really should have!

This cafe was no secret as it was crowded beyond belief.  Fortunately, after a bit of a photo-shoot of the 360 degree city view, we found ourselves seated at a tiny little table as we waited to sample the array of treats that we’d just purchased.  As I had decided to opt out of all that Amsterdam is known for, I was quite happy with this little find after a day filled with nothing but walking interrupted by constant food stops.  It was a well needed rest day that come at just the right time.
