Amsterdam Cafe - South End
OK, this is not a "coffee shop." There will be no jokes of the 4:20 kind. So, just don't.
This cafe is painted very bright shades in accordance with it's artistic theme. The sandwiches are even named after somewhat famous painters like Van Gogh and, in this case, Rembrandt.
Blah blah blah, I'm smart and know about artists if I look them up on Wikipedia--but I'm not going to do that, because I'm honest.
Russian dressing, cole slaw, hot pastrami, corned beef, and swiss on your choice of bread (I chose multi-grain) in the architectural styling of a double decker. Well done, chic cafe, way to stick to a theme and execute it well.
Damage: $6.50. I'm not really seeing any reason why you should pass this up. Are you? Maybe I'm missing something.
I wonder if the Dutch Golden Age included sandwiches.
