Oasis in Noord
Why locals love it
The location in Café Noorderlicht is one of a kind. You can find it on the shore of the old industrial neighborhood NDSM. Take the ferry and walk East for 5 minutes. Noorderlicht serves mainly biological dishes and drinks, but you won't notice this in the prices.
Why you should visit it
Going to Noorderlicht equals a little holiday with great food at fair prices and guaranteed cosines. You will never see a place like this. Built from mainly recycled material it might look like a mess from outside, but once you're inside it all makes sense.
In the summertime there is also a possibility to swim in the IJ.
