Let's shop!

Nine narrow side streets that connect the Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht: a micro-neighbourhood smack in the middle of Amsterdam’s monumental ring of canals. The 17th century (the Golden Age) was a period of unparalleled wealth in Amsterdam, stretching the city to its very limits. Urban expansion was much needed and the city’s signature ring of canals was built. This included The Nine Streets that quickly filled with merchants, culture and crafts.

PANCAKES Amsterdam

Traditional Dutch homemade pancakes

PANCAKES Amsterdam will provide you with a solid food foundation for the rest of the day. This cosy pancake house serves classic Dutch pancakes with cheese and bacon, or more adventurous combinations such as apple and calvados. Those who prefer a heartier fare can order the American pancakes. The queue outside probably says it all: these are the best pancakes in town.

Cosy lunch

Cakes on display in the window, cute tables out front: Ree7 has a warm and friendly vibe. Inside, it feels like you’ve just sat down on your friend’s sofa. A friend who also happens to make a great lunch; try the delicious panini sandwiches, the lamb meat salad or freshly made pumpkin soup. And for dessert enjoy a slice of homemade apple pie. Too busy shopping to stop for lunch? Ree7 also sells take-away lunches.
