- 'de kop van jut' leidsekruisstraat, wonderful food, small but cosy
- 'de jaren' nieuwe doelenstraat, also cafe, noisy but if you like that it's ok

't Aepjen bar (http://www.nileguide.com/destination/amsterdam/bars-and-clubs/in-t-aepjen/322386). It's the oldest bar in Amsterdam. Ask the barman for their small explanation of the history. Try a few traditional dutch drinks here, such as Jenever (dutch gin) or various ages, Kornwijn (corn wine) and a plate of dutch borrelhapjes (drink snacks) such as bitterballen, kaas, and woorst.
The canal trip is a great way to see Amsterdam if you're just here for the weekend.
Take the free ferry from behind central station to the NDSM Werf and have lunch at Noorderlicht (http://www.nileguide.com/destination/amsterdam/restaurants/cafe-restaurant-noorderlicht/1474139?keywords=noorderlicht. It's an arty cafe in a polytunnel, but it has great priced fresh food and a super view over Amsterdam from across the water.
If you're here for more than a couple of days, rent a bicycle and do a bike trip to Broek-in-waterland. A typical dutch village about 10km north of Amsterdam. Eat a pancake there for the real dutch experience!
