She thinks this is because Morgan and Mees have a very fine and central location, within walking distance of the Jordan River. The terrace is very nice and the Coffee is TOP. Best thing about Morgan and Mees? The décor. The interior is really a picture. Her favorite coffee is cappuccino, she drinks outside (even if it is cold) with a cigarette and a smint.

My favorite place for coffee actually there are 2: Lot Sixty One & Coffee Room. They're both against each other, so if one is neither place, I go to the other. Lot Sixty One and Coffee Room are my favo's for coffee in Amsterdam. Lot Sixty One I would crown the best coffee and Coffee Room I would crown sitting for more fun and also a nice place to sit with your laptop. Both of them sat at my old house in the street, so I could walk (I love walking) towards it. My favo coffee is without a doubt a flat white with soy milk. Although I think a black coffee in the morning is a real spoiled moment.
