I found the bean and bagel place in the bookshop in the Passage. The cafe is next to the children's books so there is a place for the kiddies to sit and read and draw. And its smoke free and has free internet Wirelesslan
Yeah I go here too but the coffee and sandwiches are way better in Paagmann!
Paagmann has only been totally smoke-free since the refit within the last 12 months but they did used to have a non-smoking area.
The truth is that most places in NL are child friendly apart from the smokiness...the Dutch seem much better than the English at tolerating children...nearly all restaurants produce crayons and paper for them...its just that you take pot luck on the smoke thing....which is a big but really...hence why we always seem to end up in V&D (I loathe that place because of overexposure to it) and the Bijenkorf just because they have non-smoking areas.
