Stopped by as part of the Hungry Birds walking food tour. Run by the son, who was a great guy. Wide selection of beers, liquors on a quaint corner. Not the loudest or fanciest, but a great spot for a beer and some people-watching.

The cafe is nice with a historical identity and good for a drink once and a while. But when you close the toilets on Kings Day even selling drinks is a neglect towards your paying customers. No value for money.

Used to live near here. Absolutely love this place. It’s a real locals hangout, with good beer, nice people, and good location. In summer people hang out outside, away from the crazy hustle and bustle of Rembrandtplein.

I was greeted on my entrance into this bar by a threesome of 80-something year-olds sitting on hard wood stools and gripping some beers. They did not look at me as if I was out of place in this quite old bar. The bartender obviously...More

If you’re a US tourist in Amsterdam, a small corner bar that has no lively music may not immediately attract your attention. However I’d encourage you to try this. Even though everyone in there certainly seemed local and speaking the vastly unfamiliar (to me) Dutch...More

This is a typical old fashioned Amsterdam's café. It looks like your living room with a large bar. They have large variety of alcoholic but also non alcoholic drinks. They also serve typical Dutch bar food. All this at a reasonable price. We were there...More
