"Until now, there's been nowhere in Amsterdam that you can get a real American breakfast, especially pancakes," says Susan, a US native interviewed at the diner. "The American Diner does them perfectly - and they even have blueberry topping!"

Their milkshakes are made manually, with the famous old school mixing apparatus. And, the hot wings and chili fries boast American-made ingredients like BBQ sauce and real American cheese.
