Café De Prins . Amsterdam
As mentioned countless times when I travel I prefer to base myself in quieter neighborhood where I can visit local markets, shops, and restaurants. One place in Amsterdam enjoys the best of the tourist and local traffic is Café De Prins, a medium size cafe on one of the many canals.
During the day many visitors enjoy lunch here after touring the Anne Frank House just a few blocks away, but in the evening it seemed to populated mostly by residents from the bordering Jordaan neighborhood to the west.
A small bar greets you upon entry, serving coffee in the morning and spirits by night – or to some the opposite. Up a few stairs and to the back is a dining area with large tables – perfect for a solo meal like mine or gathering with others. This pictured meal is my typical European breakfast, but usually with about three more coffees.
Café De Prins is located at Prinsengracht 124 at Leliegracht. Or better yet, copy the map location.
