Amsterdam is full of the best places to drink coffee. I asked 5 locals for their favorite place and of course their favorite coffee!
When I wake up on Saturday or Sunday, I love to have a cup of coffee together with my boyfriend or girlfriends. After a lot of coffee dates, we know what coffee place we like and enjoy.
So are you in Amsterdam and looking for a good, cozy cup of coffee? Then 5 young people help you through sharing their favorite place. And believe me , they have a lot of coffee experience in Amsterdam.
1). Brouwerij Troost
First, Dirk Berkers shares his favorite spot. Dirk is 23 years old and works at the head office of a large clothing brand. Since one year he lives in Amsterdam East where his favorite place for a cup of coffee can also be found: Brouwerij Troost. Why? Because you are actually going to the brewery for beer, but you can comfort yourself with such tasty bakkies. "The interior is eclectic, just like in every hotspot, but a big advantage is that you look out on all the shopping people in Oostpoort." And Dirk does not have to go far for his cup of black coffee.
Brewery comfort can be found in the Pijp, Westergas and East. The brewery produces beer, spirits and lemonade in three monumental buildings in Amsterdam. The location in the pipe originated from a former monastery, the second location is the Westergasfabriek and the third location in Oost was opened last September with distillery. Each of the locations has its own brewpub!

2). Bar Louie Louie
Carmen's favorite place is Louie Louie. Carmen is 28 years old and currently works at an HR company. Louie Louie was at her last house around the corner and thanks to that reason Loui Louie has become her favorite. Nice and close, good reason. In Louie Louie it is currently super nice and warm and that you do need with the cold that currently prevails in the Netherlands and the service is super good. What else do you want? Coffee. What about the coffee, Carmen? "The coffee is good, but the atmosphere does the most for me." Carmen likes to drink black coffee oh and preferably in the morning.
Bar Louie Louie is located in Amsterdam East and is open daily from 9 am to 1 pm and on Friday and Saturday it is open until 3 am. So you understand that this place has more to offer than just coffee!

And you can choose whether you want to drink your coffee inside or outside, because they also have a terrace! Bar Louie Louie is from the same owners as the beer garden, Bukowski and Smokin 'Barrels.

3). Coffee house De Hoek
Thijl is 23 years old and is working as an entrepreneur with a startup that makes healthy eating easier and faster. He also works as an advisor and project manager with various IT projects. Coffee does not lust Thijl, but he really likes to come to Koffiehuis op de Hoek on the Prinsengracht. Owners Ruby and Iris provide a perfect atmosphere and besides coffee (Thijl does not drink coffee), Thijl always likes to eat an apple pancake here. But what does Thijl drink? "Tea! Black tea. With too much sugar. "
Koffiehuis De Hoek is located at (how surprisingly) a corner of the Prinsengracht and is open every day until 16.00. A place where tourists and locals come together and is known for its simplicity.

4). The Laundry
Xander is 24 years old and lives and works in Amsterdam. He currently works in sustainable consultancy and lives in the pipe, which according to him is one of the nicest districts of Amsterdam. His favorite place is located in the pipe: De Wasserette. The people from Amsterdam among us know this place. Xander can be found weekly at De Wasserette and he indicates that it feels a bit like his second home. The place is cozy and Xander also likes to share his favorite De Wasserette sandwich, namely chicken avocado sandwich. The place is especially cozy because of the location. Especially at weekends there is a lot to do here and you sometimes have to wait a long time for a place. The coffee? They have just switched from coffee and Xander is happy with this. "My black coffee is better than first."
The Laundry is really a classic for the local people in Amsterdam. It is known for breakfast, brunch and lunch and many Amsterdam people go here for a sandwich or a coffee at the weekend. It may be that you have to wait for a table, because often there are many people waiting for a free table. At the Laundry you have to order at the counter and then your order is brought to the table. Getting acquainted with "Hip Amsterdam"? Then this is the right place! You can sit inside or outside. Oh, and in the evening they are closed!

5). Morgan and Mees
Danique is 22 years old and is currently doing an internship as part of her marketing, innovation and entrepreneurship studies. Danique undoubtedly drinks the most coffee outside the door of all locals in this list and therefore has the most experience with coffee shops. Her favorite place is Morgan and Mees. She thinks this is because Morgan and Mees has a very nice and central location, within walking distance of the Jordaan. The terrace is very nice and the coffee is TOP . The finest thing about Morgan and Mees? The institution. 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. What a combination, huh. Morgan & Mees is not only a restaurant but also a hotel. You can go there for coffee, lunch, drinks and of course food in the restaurant.

As an extra addition, I still want to share my own spots with you, because these are really worth a visit. I am 22 years old and am working on setting up my own sustainable product line. My favorite place for coffee is actually 2: Lot Sixty One & Coffee Room . They are both facing each other, so if there is no place at one, I go to the other. Lot Sixty One and Coffee Room are my favos for coffee in Amsterdam. I would award Lot Sixty One as the best coffee and Coffee Room to crown for more fun and also a nice place to sit with your laptop. Both were in my old house in the street, so I could walk (I love to walk) to it. My favorite coffee is without a doubt a flat white with soy milk. Although I find a black coffee in the morning really a treat.
Lot Sixty One - Kinkerstraat 112, 1053 ED Amsterdam (opening hours: Mon-Fri: 08.00-18.00, Sat-Sun: 09.00-18.00)
