Recommended if you want to have a nice but easy going dinner in the center of Amsterdam, I loved this place! The location is in a rather busy part of the city but when we went there, inside it was very quite. The interior design is really cool, with a lot of stuff from the 60s and 70s, including the...

When you enter, you think 'what is this?' and then it dawns on you that it is indeed a café, but a bit of a different one; pretty full of vintage stuff and every piece is different so your senses are quite stimulated. Still they managed to keep the place cozy and the staff is real friendly. Love the appeltaart... More

Checked this place out a few days ago, as I live next door. I like the atmosphere a bit -- it is a bit crazy, weird in a good way. And coffee is pretty good as well. But they should not pretend that they know how to cook food! The food is really ridiculous. Underseasoned, sticky, virtually uneatable rice. Tiny... More

The title is a big deal, I've been to many of them! I don't drink alcohol and due to my work situation I can't enjoy the coffeeshops so cafes are my escape when in A'dam. Latei is staffed by genuinely friendly people who are a pleasure to interact with. It's a small and cosy place yet there always seems to... More

I came to the Latei by recommendation of my BnB host. I had a perfect breakfast with a gat croissant and cappuccino. The vintage style of the café is truly great and the atmosphere is very friendly! I highly recommend it!

My intuition brought me to this hidden gem on one of the older streets in Amsterdam. The interior collage creates an excellent vintage atmosphere while the boys are cooking new & fresh ideas in the kitchen. Fusion in it's real meaning! Yammy and not expensive set for 10-14 euro.

It's not an ordinary cafe, rather peculiar for the area of Nieuwmarkt. It serves nice coffee and tasty apple-pie. Moreover the people working there are truly friendly. Recommended as a cosy place to relax and chat.
