Interesting local bar with some very good beer choices. The seating outside is very crowded but we didn’t have a problem with finding seats inside.

Went to "standing" side. We didn't linger for hours. Pop in, grab a quick drink, peek around, use the bathroom and move on. That's about it. Other Brown Cafes have much more intimate vibe. This one's more like "Yes. Check. I went to Hoppe".

You want to experience the local life? Here it is. Dutch people really like their beer after work, they call that the "Borreltje". Whether it's raining or sunny, that place is always crowded. Inside it is old and all made of wood, the floor is...More

A classic in the center of the city, one of the oldest cafes. You can enjoy a variety of beers and appetizers, although do not expect a high culinary level. Great to enjoy a drink outside in the good weather (yes, there are sunny days...More

To sit indoors at Cafe Hoppe is to enjoy a beverage in a place that has been serving customers for more than 300 years. The interior is a bit like having a beer in a fine museum. If you can grab a table on a...More

Just had a coffee here but it was very crowded as there was a football match on the TV but could tell it had lots of atmosphere.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
