Cool location and quiet vibe

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... read 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

Almost a complete waste of time. Horrid service, so-so coffee, marginal everything including the special "atmosphere" that was eluded to by many other reviews. So let's go step by step including the pluses for the establishment. Location: Outstanding. Outside seating, nice view, on the canal, flowers around the locale. Establishment itself: Somewhat clean, bright, not really that impressive in my... More

If you want to relax having a picturesque view of the canal Prinsengracht, this coffeeshop is worth your attention. I sat there with my friends having a coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. The atmosphere is calm and friendly, some good music is played which might be important if you want to try other, 'smokable' positions from the menu.

This came highly recommended by some in the TA forum for beginners or people who would like to try smoking. The lady at the counter is super nice and it's a very chill and low key place. This is not like some of the 420 shops in city center where one can feel intimidated by the crowd easily. It costs... More

We stumbled upon this cafe when we taking a stroll around the neighborhood. We got ourselves a cappuccino and people watched. Right by a canal in a beautiful neighborhood, extremely chill and non assuming. Would definitely go back!

Traveling along the peaceful western canals of the Yordan district, specifically on the west side of "The 9 Street District" - is one of my favorite strolls in this city. For a relaxed, quiet and happy break, point yourself to this specific coffeeshop, whether you're fund of his side of the counter or the other...As coffeeshops slowly decayed into sleezy... 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.
