This Sunday in Amsterdam - breakfast/brunch/lunch near(ish) Van Gogh Museum

I'll be arriving at 6 am from JFK, picking up a car at Schipol, and am planning to spend the day in/near the Museumplein before heading to Heerenveen area for a few days of work.

Would appreciate suggestions of informal places relatively nearby to eat. My first visit to the Netherlands and I'm hoping to have a lazy day and an early evening before I crash. No real preferences for food type...just good taste with nothing fancy.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Thanks for the suggestions, Hans

      Brasserie Van Baerle looks really good to me, especially the garden if the weather is nice...
