Anyone who has been reading my blog knows I am a big fan of those authentic brown cafés in the Jordaan. So today I would like to tell you a lil’ something about one of my favorite Friday night hangouts: Café Thijssen. Here we go.
You can find this lovely bar in the heart of the Jordaan, outside the touristy city center (of course) which gives it a homey, relaxed feeling. Café Thijssen is located on my second favorite canal of Amsterdam, the Brouwersgracht. Which, in these cold, wintery days, almost makes you feel like you wandered into a fairy tail. A varied audience of locals, students, tourists, expats find their way to this lovely bar.

Café Thijssen is a no-nonsense bar, with that perfect authentic interior and feel. They serve a wide selection of beers, great coffee and good food. Great lunch and a wide variation of snacks. And whats better than drinking some beers while having some delicious ‘kaasstengels’, ‘bitterballen’ or/and(!) ‘nachos’. Perfect for finishing a week of hard work and start your weekend.
As it is, my work is about done I guess? Will I see you there?
1015 GD Amsterdam
