5hr Layover at Amsterdam Airport - any recommendations?

Have a 5 1/2 stopover at Amsterdam Airport late Tuesday morning.

Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for what to do?

Quick trip into the city centre (not sure if we are alowed to leave airport eek)?

Look for a lounge (visitor or similar)?

Or just soak up the time shopping eating and strolling around?

TIA

Nice write-up here about how to pass one's layover at Schiphol depending on how much time you have. Over 4 hours is kind of the sweet spot making a quick trip to town both feasible and worthwhile
