Good coffee & more at Vascobelo V-Bar Amsterdam
We got a great hotspot for all books and coffee fanatics: Vascobelo V-Bar in Amsterdam! This Belgian coffee company opened their first V-bar in Antwerp this year. And now, we got our own in Amsterdam. Vascobelo V-Bar is on the first floor of the bookshop Scheltema at the Rokin. So do you love reading with a nice cup of coffee? Then you can enjoy your reading time at the Vascobelo V-Bar!
It’s obvious that Vascobelo V-Bar in Amsterdam is situated at a great location. Just nearby the Jordaan and the Red Light District. But it’s also a great hotspot where you can have breakfast all day. Croissants, yoghurt and even oatmeal. Have to get up early for work or study and don’t have time to make your own breakfast? Then now you have no excuses anymore for not having breakfast ;-). You can of course also have lunch at Vascobelo V-Bar. Here they have delicious soups, salads and sandwiches.
And I haven’t even talked about their coffee yet. High quality, rain forest alliance and fair trade coffee. The beans come from farmers that work without pesticides. And these beans are roasted slowly, in order to bring out as much flavour as possible. If you really love the coffee ofVascobelo V-Bar in Amsterdam, then you can even take one of their Vascobelo blends or single origins coffee with you.
Tip: Here they sell Kopi Luwak, world’s most exclusive coffee. A must-try, because my “shot” of Kopi Luwak was really something! Obviously not for your daily dose of coffee, but very interesting to taste it once.
