“Welcome to Antwerpen, the most beautiful part of Amsterdam.”
The famous Antwerp coffee bar Caffènation is now in Amsterdam! Yeah! That means from now on, you can drink really good coffee in the Schinkel neighbourhood. Served by Bert from Antwerp, where he was a barista at Caffènation. Bert followed his love to the Netherlands and now he has his own coffee bar!
The new specialty coffee bar Caffènation Amsterdam serves coffee of house roasted beans. And whether you are going for one of the standard variants or a special one? The coffee here is good. Very good! Not in the mood for coffee? Try the homemade sodas and ice teas. And do not forget to take a slice of homemade chocolate with it.
Interior design x Caffènation Amsterdam
Caffènation Amsterdam looks from the outside like a small coffee bar. But walk inside and you’ll find no less than two floors where you can sit on the couch or table. There is a nice living room atmosphere, furniture and art is created by artists from Antwerp, and you are always greeted by the cheerful Bert with a “Welcome to Antwerp, the most beautiful part of Amsterdam.”
