De Liefde, Amsterdam
A romantic restaurant, in a quiet environment, big (sunny) terrace, in the heart of the centre of Amsterdam. Sounds pretty nice doesn’t it? I (Hunter Niels) personally find it at challenge to find a good sunny terrace in Amsterdam. However I think I found the perfect spot to hang out on sunny days: de Liefde (the Love in Dutch). De Liefde opened it’s doors only a few weeks ago. They have a good lunch and dinner menu with mainly classics: BLT’s, Hamburgers, Ceasar salads and a diverse range of sandwiches. It’s a small menu, but what they serve is good. Delicious crispy bread, to-die-for brownies, biological juices and good coffee (which seems to be a challenge for most other terraces and restaurants in Amsterdam.). What I find makes De Liefde so unique is the location. It’s in the middle of the centre of Amsterdam, located on the Bilderdijkstraat, in a small park called the ‘Bilderdijkpark’. You will easily pass by without even noticing there is a park. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, in a little piece of nature, good food and drinks. I say it is love at first sight with de Liefde.
