Panoramic views in Amsterdam

If you’re in Amsterdam and want somewhere to have lunch, go to blue°. It’s a café/restaurant at the top of the Kalvertoren shopping centre (on Kalverstraat), and it has panoramic views of the city. If you’re on a limited budget, don’t go for a full lunch: get drinks and share a plate of tortilla chips and guacamole. It overlooks the flower market, and it’s pretty special to be sitting having your lunch looking at the top of the canal houses of Amsterdam. The canals are what make the city so amazing – wandering around, you completely take it for granted, but it’s a beauty you just don’t get in a city like London. Blue° is open 7 days a week, so go when the weather’s good to make the most out of the floor to ceiling windows and amazing views (although it still looks good in the rain).

    I just got back from Amsterdam! Should have read this before. I’m back there in January. Do you know of anywhere safe to eat gluten free there?
