As the Reijchmuseeum was done over, the usual cafe was closed.
We were sent out to the Museumsplein and passed the "I amsterdam" letters, found cafe Cobra.
An open, modern cafe. A somewhat standard menu, but fitting for the soroundings.
The waiter was attentive and soon I'd have my Heineken.
I went for the bacon pancake, Great stuff for a mid afternoon snack.

This cafe is right next to the famous I Amsterdam sign, in Museumplein. The food was simple but tasty enough. Music was a little loud for my tastes. I ordered some aged Amsterdam cheese and was somewhat surprised to discover that this was precisely what I received, the only addition being a pot of mustard. Those crazy logical Dutch.

Cobra Cafe is a great restaurant right in the center of Amsterdam, near the museums. They have the best service, everybody are nice and doing their best. They have a fwe gluten free meals and various other meals. The food is delicious, we really enjoyed it. The prices are also good.

Had lunch here after a visit to the Rijksmuseum (your ticket gets you a 15% discount). Service was friendly and ok and if the weather is nice the terrace is a nice place to lounge.
Lunch food was tasty.

We came here for a quick drink after a museum visit, and we were not very impressed.

The drinks menu was very basic for a bar. The selection of beer was small, and not very interesting. No local beer. The prices were also quite steep.

The staff bustled about, looking very busy, but it took a while before we were actually served. We ordered drinks, which came reasonably quickly, but then we asked for a quick snack, which took ages to arrive. We were almost ready to leave by the time it arrived!

Overall, the atmosphere was not very friendly, and we will definitely avoid this place in the future.
