Location, location, loacation! De Zwart offers a splendid view on all the passers-by on the Spui. Staff is already there for years and certainly can cope with the tourist avalanche in Amsterdam. Yet the atmosfeer of the place stays cosy, local and somewhat intellectual. There...More

The service was fast and friendly. The location was perfect for us, as we have walked by this café multiple times. It was a great place to relax and unwind after a day of shopping at the Albert Cuyp Market.

Too expensive for now reason. Went there for a quick coffee. Did not check the menu from the start. My mistake. One double espresso for 6,50€ is too much. Most prices are high and not reasonable. The shop is sympathetic inside.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
