Don't taje breakfast at home, or in your hotel.
Instead eat out at Café Amsterdam at the airport.

“Complete menu”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is probably the only restaurant after imigration that offers a menu with complete meals. Yes, you can buy your small snack or sandwich, but this place also offers T-bone steaks and other larger portions. This is sort of my regular stop when I have an evening flight out of Schiphol as it offers me the better choice in meals.

The atmosphere is of an 'bruin cafe' with very friendly staff and quick service. Prices are of course not on the cheap side but the quality and service is well worth it. Even just for a coffee sitting at the reading table gives you an idea of the atmosphere. And for smokers, there is a smoking room in the back.

“Covenient location and decent food”
Reviewed December 20, 2009

After an early flight from BCN, my wife and I ate here during our 5-hour layover before catching a connector home. The restaurant is located on the second floor of the main shopping area of the Amsterdam IAP Schiphol.

The wait staff was friendly, helpful, and being the Netherlands, of course multilingual. Service was good.

The atmosphere was that of a dark, smokey, Dutch tavern. The "outside" seating is located in the ped areas outside of the main tavern. The non-smoking area is "outside".

My wife decided to try a standard chicken sandwich, while I tried the ham croquettes with frites. The two large croquettes were okay. The filling was rich and creamy/cheesy; the frites were good especially with frites sauce (i.e., mayo for Americans).

Nice place to grab a bite while waiting for a flight.
