I was staying at an AirBNB and my hostess said this was her favorite spot for breakfast or an afternoon treat. I had their breakfast menu which included tea, orange juice, toast, and a croissant.

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this place when we arrived in Amsterdam in need of a coffee and a sugary pick-me-up. It is very small inside so I wouldn't suggest going as a big group of 5 or more people, or with a baby pram/wheelchair but they do take-away. However for a couple it was nice to sit by... More

I absolutely loved Melly's. It's cue and quaint and does an AMAZING hot chocolate, perfect against the November cold and rain. I loved watching the cakes being made in the little kitchen just off the cafe, and you an tell all the cakes are freshly homemade - they are delicious. Seriously recommend the white chocolate and blueberry cake.

The smell of the baked goods definitely will draw you in. We had the apple strudel with a cappachinno which was delicious. The atmosphere is quante small little cafe with big from Windows to watch people as they pass on by.

Really enjoyed the small cafe's atmosphere and service. The drinks were great but the variety of cookies was amazing and very tasty. I shall return!

Most delicious apple strudel I've ever tasted. And charming houses on the window. I'll drink coffee here again when going back to Amsterdam.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
