Here’s 5 other cafes which you can visit during your time in Amsterdam! Other than Screaming Beans, which is located in a highly popular location, the other cafes may be slightly out of the way for tourists, but still easily accessible by bikes.
1. Roost Koffie
Roost Koffie is located right next to the OLGV hospital, and just two streets down Amstelcampus – where the gym is. It is in a very unassuming and quiet location, serving the local neighbourhood some good cakes and coffee.
Although Google says that the cafe closes at 6pm, in actual fact it closes at 5pm! I stayed till the cafe has to close, doing my work at the table overseeing the street =P
2. Screaming Beans
It was empty at about 230pm in the afternoon, when my friend and I were at the cafe. Apparently this is a newer outlet of the two, and more people frequent the other outlet nearby. The coffee here is a tad costlier than other cafes…
The apple pie is comparable to Winekl 43 – in my opinion! The crust is thin, the filling is sweet enough, and the apple pie goes well with the cream. It is definitely worth a try!
Filter is just a 5 minute walk from my residence at Prins Hendrikkade 189. I can’t believe it took me so long to finally visit this young and lively cafe – located under an eco-hostel.
This cafe is not a good place to set up your laptop and do your work, but it is a very nice and comfortable place for a chat with your friends over coffee and cake!
4. Sweet Cup
Sweet Cup is not just a cafe, but also a microroastery. I’m given a choice to choose between the beans that were on sale that day, between Ethiopia and something-else-which-I-don’t-remember… oops! I chose the latter!
It’s a nice small space to have your coffee before/after your visit to the museums in museumplein, as it is just two canals away 🙂
5. Rum Baba
Rum Baba is located in the outer neighbourhood of Amsterdam, in the east. During lunch hours on a Friday, this place can get pretty crowded. I ordered this cheese and chorizo sandwich and was surprised by how good it can be – hot and crispy, with generous servings of cheese. Rum Baba serves tea as well, for those who don’t like coffee (but who doesnt?!) I spied with my little eyes, a customer that ordered green tea latte – which is a very rare thing to have in cafes here! Would probably visit this place again just for its GTL 🙂
There you go – another 5 cafes to visit in Amsterdam =P Be sure to check out my previous posts, and you would already have 15 cafes to visit!
