#138 of 291 in Nightlife in Amsterdam
Away from touristy Amsterdam, where two of the most beautiful canals of the city meet, you will find Café Thijssen. Well known and appreciated by the locals, this is a no-nonsense bar with a classical look and feel. The wide beer selection, good coffee and food, great view and easy going atmosphere make this ‘brown café’ a perfect base from which to explore the real Amsterdam.

  • I ordered the standard breakfast at 6 euros – finally received 2 jacks with butter and one hard egg. I think it's a little dull.

  • This is like so many small cozy cafes scattered all around Amsterdam. This one is especially good if you want to relax after going to the open market - it is right at the corner at one end of the mark...  more »

  • Nice local busy cafe. We went back twice in the same day! Had a yummy cheese and tomato toastie and some deliciously different veggie bitterballs with a nice spicy sauce. Of course they have several good local biers to choose from on tap. We tried several. :) We will probably go back tomorrow!
  • Wowwww super tasty food with a lot choices, and of course friendly staff...
