Koffiehuis van den Volksbond

PERMANENTLY CLOSED

Amsterdam
$$$$

Brimming with locals and top-notch cups of coffee, this no-nonsense spot is a neighborhood favorite -- and one of the last refuges in the wave of trendiness sweeping Amsterdam's eastern side. You'll find a wide variety of food options in the lineup here, from a stir-fried Thai chicken salad to grilled trout. The personality of the menu really pops with the desserts, such as the “Brexit mess,” a strawberry and meringue treat with whipped cream that'll complement your coffee perfectly.
