Little beats sitting outside at Café Cobra on a sunny afternoon, watching the great and good of Amsterdam come out to play for Sunday brunch. The food is not top-drawer but the spicy croquettes and bitterballen (traditonal Dutch meatballs) accompanied with fat fries, mayo, and a glass of prosecco certainly hit the spot. By day, the light-filled cafe interior is always heaving with tourists as amazingly it is the only restaurant adjacent to the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk, and Van Gogh museums, but the young wait staff cope admirably with the multilingual crowds and service is always impeccable and smooth. In winter there’s an ice rink outside.
