5. Coffee & Coconuts
It is definitely one of Amsterdam’s must-visit café, located in Ceintuurbaan. The building used to ‘host’ the former Ceintuur Theater and has been converted into a cozy coffee place offering quality coffee and homemade food in a funky environment. The apple & amarene cherry crumble and the hot choco are among our suggestions from the ‘rich’ menu.

6. Het Stadspaleis
A small distance from Dam Square you can find Stadspaleis, a tiny but extremely cozy café that seems to have come straight out of a fairytale. When you step inside, you will see a small heating stove next to two small tables and a little kitchen that produces tasty sandwiches, salads and soup. We bet you’ll have to succumb to the delicious avocado, hummus and tomato bruschetta. This is not is a café to miss.
