Coffee shop Tweede Kamer - Amsterdam
One of the most frequently recommended coffee shops in Amsterdam is 'De Tweede Kamer', situated in the center of town, a five minute walk from Dam square or the Flower Market. The phrase ‘Tweede Kamer’ (Second Room) commonly refers to the upper house of the Dutch Parliament. Some say this salute to the Dutch government was intended, but fact is that Holland’s pragmatism has made cofffee shops like De Tweede Kamer possible.
This tiny little coffee shop was the first to be opened in 1985 and soon became very popular with locals. The consistently friendly, expert service one finds when visiting the shop is a big part of the reason. That and excellent espresso, tea, cakes and fruit juices as well, not to mention the 'coffee'.
If you’re lucky enough to find a free seat in the cozy, wood-panneled shop, do hang around. It’s a nice place to relax, shoot the breeze, and watch the shop’s diverse collection of customers. The De Tweede Kamer owns nearby coffeeshop De Dampkring, which is also known for its high quality products and service.
