Our first real meal in Amsterdam was after my tour through the Anne Frank House (this is just a food blog, light and happy, but I must say I am still in awe that I stood in the very same spot where Anne Frank and her family and friends hid for 2 years. I touched the bookcase that hid the entry staircase. I was there. Words fail).
Back to the more inane details of life--brunch along a canal!
First things first--where's my coffee?
I hadn't had a proper breakfast yet, so I opted for the bacon, egg and cheese on toast, and of course, a coffee. It was melty, salty, crunchy, and exactly what I wanted.
ABF, once again, had his ordering mojo going. He ordered the sandwich on pumpkin bread. My American brain pictured a dense, heavy, sweet loaf, but it turned out to be a light and lovely bread with a hefty sprinkling of pumpkin seeds on the crust.
This was outstanding!
