With Amsterdam’s sun not setting until 10pm in the beginning of summer, we don’t think it would take much to convince you to check out Amsterdam’s outdoor terraces for dining and drinking. Just in case, here are a few fan favorites: Noorderlicht Café, Hannekes Boom, Lokaal Edel, Cafe de Jaren, and Brouwerij't IJ
