Just like the Amsterdam food culture, the coffee culture has also evolved immensly during the past couple of years. It used to be mainly the expats that were on the search for their good quality coffee fix. But in the meantime, also the locals joined the hype and are becoming much more critical about the right coffee!
While many things had to close during the Covid-19 peaks, luckily the coffee places were able to stay open – and their importance has become even bigger. Now that people can’t enjoy a nice meal in a restaurant, or go for Sunday brunch in their favourite cafe, you can see the locals queuing in front of their favourite Amsterdam coffee bars to get their taste buds going.
Everyone loves a warm brew after their weekend exercise, to take with them on a stroll through the park, or to warm up while the kids play outside.
Like I said, there are many lovely Amsterdam coffee bars by now that all brew wonderful coffee. But we thought it’s nice to list our favourite neighbourhood coffee places for you, so that you know where to go once you are able to visit us in Amsterdam again.
