“Neighbourhood cafe/restaurant with great terrace in the summer overlooking the water. They do their groceries in the neighbourhood, so hence their name (buurt means neighbourhood). I occasionally drop off the keys here as well. ”

Coffee Shop

“Hands down the best coffee in Amsterdam! Well, it is a concept grounded and run by World Barista Champ of 2018! Love, detail, coffee to perfection. If you understand what I am talking about then it is a must on your list and only 5 min walking distance.”

“Again, like broodje Daan. A very unassuming cafe but with a good variety of (micro-)beers and 'borrelhapjes': traditional Dutch snacks. Try bitterballen, kaasstengels, osseworst, leverworst and mature cheese, There are only locals here, the bar-staff is very friendly and this is the place to be if you want to chat to a real Amsterdammer. ”

“This is Amsterdam in a nutshell! For a taste of authentic Amsterdam flavour and Dutch culture, don't miss a visit to the Fluiter, which is a traditional Dutch pub known as a 'brown café' (bruin café).”
