We followed review to La Tertulia shop for some sponge cake but they don't sell them anymore. They did have some infused brownies which was nice. Most of Coffeeshops have the pre-packed brownie though. If you are amature like us only want to try something easy in a friendly environment, La Tertulia is a good place to go.

This is a great little shop run by a mother and daughter team. They have outdoor seating and you can get sandwiches and toasties as you please.

I and some friends visited Amsterdam and I figured that when you visit Amsterdam you should try some cannabis, being one of the few places in the world where it is legal. As someone that haven't tried any form of cannabis before, this place was great. The lovely ladies that worked there were really nice and forthcoming, answering all my... More

As an older adult i did not feel comfortable in the other coffee shops in the center which were dark and smokey with a young crowd. This place is the opposite, very nice with outside seating where you can roll and light up and have lunch and/or espresso. Staff very friendly, and patient as that bubble gum herb got me... More

This coffee shop was well located and next to the canal in an area which was a little quieter. The décor inside was a little unloved but authentic with some interesting plants. The area outside was nice with a pretty mural on the wall. Friendly staff, good music playing. Nice place to spend an hour.

The basic facilities in La Tertulia may make it look a little shabby, but the service is friendly and the home-made apple cake is some of the best I've had. It's a lovely coffeeshop for chilling out in on a sunny day, enjoying the canalside scenery.

On a quiet stretch of Prisengracht i had researched back through the reviews and this cafe's appeal was that it seemed to keep to a formula which it has stuck to for many years. I was pleased that it lived up to that expectation The music is chilled the locals come in to participate in board games or get a... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
