Apple tart with cream – another speciality

At the end of your ramble across the Dutch capital, you may want to have a final break.
Just at the beginning oft he Damrak promenade, close to the crossing near the central station, there is a nice Italian restaurant. They serve, beyond good pizza and noodles, a great apple tart, Dutch style. This means, that it comes along with a big heap of cream, and a very tasty cup of coffee.
