I liked the atmosphere of the place, but the coffee is terrible. When my cappuccino arrived it looked so nice and foamy, and the milk was good, but the coffee tasted old and bad. Cute place to hang out, and I prefer supporting local spots, but would give this a miss on my next trip to UB.

A nice change to all the Caffe Bene shops in UB! And they have much better wifi!! It might not look that much at first sight but it's a cute place with a big balcony(facing the peace avenue), friendly staff that know quite good english, very fast service, nice meals, strong coffee and just a great breakfast/brunch place! They dont... More

Was just a good place to kick back and have a cold beer in the sun on a very hot day, with an outdoor area overlooking the street for people-watching

sine it was rated high I went there for breakfast; probably I took the wrong choice - English Breakfast - and I was nit impressed at all; next time I have to look for something better - either on the menu or at another place

Like many good cafes and restaurants in UB, it started off good but spiraled down so fast and so sadly. In a way it's good it's closed now

Just across from the State Department Store, Cafe Amsterdam is a great place to sit and work while drinking coffee or having a light meal. Decent WiFi (usually). If the weather is nice, there's a nice patio overlooking the busy sidewalk, and there are plenty of cosy tables and sofas to chill with friends. [NOTE: when I was last in... More

Sadly Cafe Amsterdam is now closed, hence the TERRIBLE review. Having been in Ub for over 4 years, the Cafe was famous as the original or at least one if them meeting points for expats and travellers. The food served was fine and good but one assumes the lease has run out. Now there is plenty of competition and the... More

I've been to Café Amsterdam around 5 times already, I love that it is located just next to the state department store, a popular point to meet up with people. The stuff is very friendly, they serve excellent cappuccino, fresh juices, a delicious hot chocolate and have a variety of great teas. They have comfy couches as well as nice... More
