Five reasons to visit Oud-West, Amsterdam
Levain et le Vin

is on my street in Oud-West and is so underrated – it's the cutest neighborhood restaurant, with the yummiest food.
is reason enough to stay in Oud-West – it's so cozy and extremely chic.
I love theGekaapt
concept store. I usually pop in once a week or so, to see what’s new. Their kid's store is pretty fun, too.

spot for a picnic.
is not actually in Oud-West, but it's
