We went here before getting our train for the airport as so close to the station. Spent some time on the top floor with its wonderful view over the city. The restaurant was excellent. What a wonderful facility this is for Amsterdam citizens.

Before going I was surprised all this positive comments on this place,
but after visited there i say they deserves all praise and its near from central station
Downstairs is dedicated to kids and organized so beautifully
And the restaurant on the last floor with a great view

We only managed to pop in for 30 mins whilst waiting for friends to arrive, but wished we'd come earlier for a meal.
The top floor cafe does have a great view and is large and was peaceful at the time of our visit. The cafe looked excellent, even though we didn't have time to eat - significant displays of fresh fruit and veg, great juices and sandwiches, etc. Clearly they are trying to offer something decent. Worth a visit if you need a break from the busy streets of tram and bikes - especially on a clear day.

We made our way here after arriving in Amsterdam from the train station. Head to the top floor, great views of the city. Worth a visit and it's free!

The library is worth a visit. Walk the stairs or take the elevator and find the restaurant on the top floor. Fine view and reasonable food.
