Special to mention: the 'stroopwafel'you are served on the Grand Dutch Food Tour is used at Daalder for a special dessert.

Drinks in the Jordaan area
Here are our favourite places for a drink and to enjoy some of those typical Dutch borrelhapjes like 'bitterballen'. Most also have terraces but when the weather is nice it can be hard to find a spot.
Breakfast or Lunch in the Jordaan area
Finding a place for an early breakfast can be tricky in Amsterdam as many businesses do not open before 10am. For this, however, you can go to one of the many excellent delis for a freshly made sandwich. In addition, some cafés also offer a breakfast menu. A truly Dutch breakfast is the 'uitsmijter' (literally: bouncer) , fried eggs with ham or bacon, cheese and tomato on white bread.
Having lunch in a restaurant is less common in the Netherlands although you can find plenty in the city centre that offer a lunch menu. A good local custom is to stop by one of the many delis or sandwich shops for a luxury sandwich and eat it outside in, hopefully, the sunshine.
