For more than thirty years a landmark in Amsterdam. Although the interior in recent times changed many times, the atmosphere certainly is not! You will soon feel at home in the warm atmosphere that the cafe, visitors and staff exude. In the summer season there is a sunny terrace where you have an excellent view of the lively Utrechtsestraat. In winter you can enjoy in our excellent atmosphere and warm drinks. Besides a cozy drink venue the Huyschkaemer also has an excellent lunch menu with a variety of delicious and special sandwiches. We also do breakfast from 0900 on. We have WIFI so you possibly can do some work or study or we have a selection of games which you can play with. In the evening we have a menu with many small dishes for a nice drink and a bite. And from Sunday to Thursday evening, we serve salads, soup and a hamburger for the larger appetite. So you can sit down en enjoy yourselfes here all day!

We arrived in Amsterdam and we're looking for a place to rest up and re fuel - this was relaxing. Really good coffee and salt beef sandwiches. Staff friendly and helpful. Set on a busy street, but once inside, good calming atmosphere

The lonely planet recommended this bar/café and so I stopped for lunch. The sandwich was ok, the service was ok, not great, the bloody mary I had was possibly the worst one ever made. Shame. I wouldn't recommend

We stopped here for lunch after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The food was lovely and well priced, we enjoyed a beer with our lunch which was nice. Service was good and the cafe itself was really nice inside, i would certainly go again.
