Café-restaurant Paleis, just behind the Paleis (Palace) on the Dam, has been a favourite for years because of its affordable dishes and is also a great spot to drop in for a drink. Many students come to this cosy but modern place after their exams, shoppers come here after a day out and freelancers hold their work meetings here. It has a nice terrace in the summer. Tarts, filled rolls, pasta, salads and soups are on the menu.
