Coffee Bars in Amsterdam

In Amsterdam you drink coffee in a coffee bar or café. Coffeeshops have a completely different function. As the Dutch are in the top five of coffee drinking nations, coffee bars are ubiquitous in Amsterdam. If you have asked for ‘koffie’ you are most likely to get black coffee with sugar and coffee cream, along with a biscuit. Dutch cafés also serve cappuccino, espresso and other Italian-style coffees.
