Tasty open sandwiches, a lovely salad with mushroom and cheese, relaxed service. We didn't stay for cakes, but they looked great. Recommend for lunch when wandering through de 9 Straatjes.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Is the Chocolaterie Pompadour open on Saturday and Sunday? Tripadvisor lists it as being closed on those days, but the website says they are open on those days. Thanks so much! Alice
