Cafe De Jaren Amsterdam Reviews
Cafe de Jaren Apr 24, 2016
I found this place by coincidence. Me and my friend had to wait one hour for a movie we wanted to watch in Pathe Tuschinski Cinema and the cafe is quite close to it. I'm so glad we gave it a try as we found an absolute gem.
This cafe is typically busy and has a good atmosphere. It is huge and has two floors. The views from both are incredible. The big windows give a beautiful view of the Amsterdam's canal. You can sit outside if you want and if weather lets. The terrace faces the water's edge. You can watch the boats sailing by. I can imagine how popular this place must become in summer. It was very busy when I visited and it was hard to get a seat but we were lucky to get one, next to the window, with a view! People who came few minutes later had less luck as they had to wait for a table.
The food menu is simple but good. The service is okay. Could be faster though. Prices are reasonable.
What I loved here the most, was the fresh mint tea! It tasted good and it looked good! It was served with optional honey.
The only thing I didn't like here is the idea of having to pay for the toilet, but this is typical for Holland maybe, as it wasn't the only place I had to pay 0,5 euro for entering a toilet, even if I was a guest.
All in all, Cafe de Jaren is an awesome place! So if you are in the city centre and you really want to have something fresh and tasty in a desirable location, this is your place. I really recommend it!
