Tea at the Station

Last week Amsterdam was overcrowded with tourists and people who had holidays. A place to have a drink was hard to find, so we decided to go to the Central Station.

At the train platform is a hidden pearl, a complete renovated former first class waiting room from 1889 where you can have a drink or a diner.

As you can see there were not many people.

And we had a nice tea with Meringue and Apfelstrudel, sitting in a comfortable leather club armchair.

  10. Elegant, right down to the glass mugs. I can imagine it filled with first class passengers and their bags a century ago.

  13. Dearest Marianne,
    Oh wow, that is ages ago since we had anything like that at the Central Station.
    Very nice ambiance and they have really kept it up very well.
    Made me smile at the Pickwick tea glasses.
    Hugs,
