5 x italian coffee, from espresso to cappuccino
December is the perfect month to drink coffee with friends and talk about the past year for hours. Fantasize about new plans for the upcoming year, and drink a real Italian espresso or cappuccino while you’re at it. Perfect, right? That’s why we selected 5 addresses in Amsterdam to drink real Italian coffee.
1 >> illy espressamente
Since last autumn you can drink coffee across Amsterdam Central Station, at ‘Espressamente’. This is illy’s first coffee cafe in Amsterdam. If you go here, you should definitely order something nice to go with the coffee. The pastries are delicious!
Hasselaerssteeg 4, Amsterdam – illy.com
2 >> Vondelpark 3
We already tried the nice wintery dishes of the new menu a few weeks ago. But also during the daytime, Vondelpark 3 is a nice spot to sit down and enjoy a coffee after a stroll down the park.

3 >> Home by Biggles
Home by Biggles is a nice interior shop in Amsterdam East where you can also drink coffee. Big chance that you’ll go home with something nice after enjoying your coffee.
Middenweg 46HS, Amsterdam – bigglesamsterdam.nl
4 >> 5&33
I love to meet in hotel lobbies to drink coffee with friends. It kind of gives me the feeling that I’m in New York or London. After that you walk straight into town to go shopping.
Martelaarsgracht 5, Amsterdam – 5and33.nl
5 >> Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam
One of the most beautiful hotels in Amsterdam is without doubt the Waldorf Astoria. The lobby is pretty and light and you can enjoy some lovely food here. It’s also nice to drink coffee here, since it’s right around the corner of the Utrechtsestraat.
Herengracht 542-556, Amsterdam – waldorfastoria3.hilton.com
