The 5 best places to have a good cup of coffee in Amsterdam
1) White Label Coffee
Francesco and Elmer opened their coffee roastery and bar in early 2014, after meeting in the Espressofabriek in Westerpark. It’s the perfect hangout for a tremendous flat white or you can also just sit and read at their reading table. Their homeroasted beans are for sale, as are the artisanal chocolate bars from Amsterdam-based shop Chocolátl.
2) Rum Baba
This bright and airy corner shop is a veritable spot of sunshine in the eastern part of Amsterdam. It’s the sister of nearby Cafe Bru and serves loose leaf tea imported straight from China as well as freshly-roasted coffee. Peckish? Their bakery serves American classics such as mud pie and lemon drizzle cake.

3) De Koffiesalon
This place serves Italian-style coffee in a cosy interior with beautiful stained glass windows. It is a lovely place to start your day with a cappuccino. If you’re lucky, you can catch a few rays of sun on their tiny terrace.
5) Coffee District
What started as a hole-in-the-wall coffee bar in a fashion shop in the southern part of town, is now a stylish bar all on its own. Owners Adil and Rosa Loukane use Amsterdam-roasted Lot61 coffee beans for their brews and serve small bites, such as their renowned cinnamon buns. There’s a second location at Willemsparkweg 8 near Museumplein.
