In spite of the bad quality of these pictures, the food on the plates was delicious. The cheese cake came with some raspberry jam and the apple pie with some cinnamon ice cream, besides cream. I liked both the taste and the presentation manner.
This is actually something common in the Dutch cafes, which are very cozy and unpretentious – and by unpretentious I mean that the furniture and the decorations are very simple, yet very beautiful. No sophisticated velvet armchairs, no glass tables… Just plain wood (sometimes painted in white) old-fashioned chairs or benches next to a basic table from the same material. Some candles are always present and – what I like most – magazines and newspapers.
Now isn`t that cozy and nice?
