“Great PLace”

Dampkring Coffeeshop
Ranked #5 of 321 Shopping in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2013

we stumbled upon this bar after wandering in the snow....lovely venue!
we were a group of 10 so we had to dot ourselves around the cafe until we could all grab seats together. Not many seats.
Great drinks, the fresh mint tea and the coffee were devine.
The staff dealt with someone being unwell, very quickly and smoothly.
The bouncer arranged cabs for us and even took us to where they were waiting...excellent service.
cosy atmosphere.

The staff was rude, condescending and disrespectful.

The quality of their offerings was not worth the horrendous behavior of a lackluster staff more interested in their text messages than providing this customer plus one with actual service.

Expect severe attitude if you wear a hat or any other kind of headwear.

Rating: 3/10

Don't waste your time with "Dumpkring".

Even if you're not into visiting Coffeshops, I highly recommend stopping by just for a drink and to soak in the atmosphere. It's a great place to hang out for a bit and chat with the staff. Most friendly staff I've ever met anywhere. They have an awesome cat that just strolls around observing all the people. Featured in Ocean's 12 - this place is a must when visiting Amsterdam.

On our trip to Amsterdam we were a bit put-off but some of the coffee shops, but this one had a great atmosphere & staff were friendly. Bonus points for playing Portishead.
Can't help but feel a bit sad for the resident kitty, though!

This was our first visit to a coffee shop, the staff were helpful and there was a good atmosphere about the place. The decor was cool and the music was good. Also seemed like a higher class clientele than the stag do's you might find hanging out in the other places.
We were advised to avoid the bigger shops such as bulldog and grasshopper, Dampkring was recommended in our hostel's guidebook (cocomama) and we're glad we followed that advice!

Oh we also found out that scenes from Ocean's Eleven were filmed here!
