Winkel 43 is truly an Amsterdam institution. Besides an excellent quality to price ratio, it is also known for its welcoming service. Open early in the morning and closing late at night, it's the place where everyone - from tourists to locals - comes for breakfast, lunch, or a late-night snack. The house specialty, hot apple pie served under a mountain of whipped cream, is reputed to be the best in Amsterdam, if not the world. If you are more on the savoury side, you will enjoy the quiche with caramelised onions, bacon and cheese, or the polenta served with cured ham, cherry tomatoes and basil mayo.
As a result of its success, the restaurant is often crowded, especially on weekends. If you can't find a seat, take your order to go and improvise a picnic along one of the neighbouring canals.
