2. Bakkerswinkel Westergas

This restaurant is located on the site of the Westergasfabriek. It’s well-known for the many creative companies which are located here. In the summer, the terrace is really a wonderful place for a tasty sandwich or an extensive afternoon tea.

3. Brouwerij ‘t IJ

Always a great and busy place. And, of course, it offers an extensive selection of refreshing and traditional beers from their own brewery. Also take a moment to look visit the Gooyer: the largest wooden windmill in Amsterdam and which is right next to the terrace.
