After wandering the windmills across the bridge, stopped in for lunch before heading back to the train to Amsterdam. Closely spaced tables to share, charming mis-matched china, yummy things to choose from in the glass case, and good sandwiches. Glad we stopped in.

Had lunch before traipsing through the windmills, 4 dukes and 5 kids. Good Food and service, location cannot be beat near the sites across the canal. Prices typical, everyone happy.

After visiting Zaanse Schans we arrived to late for food service, but they made us some marvelous tomato soup and some fresh meatballs. This great cafe becomes a very nice pub for locals. Well run and worth a visit.

Visited this cafe/restaurant for lunch after visiting the nearby windmills museum Zaanse Schan.

If you visit zaanse schanhse and you want to lunch there, it's worth the visit. They cook daily plates and you can choose a combination of them. It costs between 10 and 15 € without desserts. Nice variety and very well cooked!
