Fodor's Expert Review Café Americain

$$$ Leidseplein French

Although thousands of buildings in Amsterdam are designated historic monuments, few have interiors as stunning as the facade. This cafe is an Art Deco extravaganza with stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, and stylish leaded-glass lamps with a warm glow. While the brasserie-style food can't match the exalted surroundings, it earns good marks for a scenic high tea or afternoon bite. Tasty menu items include avocado toast, eggs Benedict for brunch, and a wide variety of classic dishes like salade Niçoise and burgers for lunch and dinner.
