Rijksmuseum Cafe

The day we went to Rijksmuseum we ate lunch at the museum's Rijksmuseum Cafe. Normally I wouldn't write an entire post just for a museum cafe but I really liked my meal. I suppose it was a bit pricey, as museums cafes tend to be. But it was yummy.

The cafe is up a flight of stairs (or an elevator ride). There was a line when we got there, but it moved quickly and soon we were seated at one the communal tables. Think cafeteria seating, long tables, but you're not super close to your neighbors. I remember it being very bright. All those white tables and lots of sunshine. We both ordered hot teas. Here's what we ate:
I had  Goat Cheese Pie (apple chutney, sage, caramelized walnuts, green herbal lettuce). This was really tasty. I was surprised how much I liked it. SP helped me a bit, but I almost ate it myself.
He chose Tomato Soup (with roasted red peppers & creme fraiche). He loves soup and I think he was counting on having to help me out more than he had to! He said the soup was good.

I usually expect museum cafes to be pricey and serve disappointing food so I was surprised how tasty lunch was. I wish I'd had more room for dessert (they had apple pie and lots of other baked treats) but I was just too full. But that pie (quiche) - I'd stop back in just for that!
