Last week I had a quick lunch at Stads Cafe Van Mechelen. It is around the corner from where I am staying in Amsterdam. The place seems to be busy every time I walk buy there. And after a very long time I had an absolutely delicious tosti. It is the most basic lunch I believe you can enjoy in Amsterdam. At Van Mechelen the tosti was basically perfect. The bread thick enough to actually be sufficient as a complete meal. The cheese melted - but not too much and enough cooked ham to really pack the sandwich. And then they served the espresso with a glass of water. A true enjoyment.
