Hi! I'm going to Amsterdam and love finding little cafes wherever I go. Where are the best places for coffee in Amsterdam? Thanks!
No Starbucks ;)
First of all be careful with the wording 'coffeeshop'. A Coffeeshop in The Netherlands is a place where you buy and smoke drugs :-). A 'Coffeeshop' has nothing to to with actual coffee. So if you ask someone on the street to direct you to a nice coffeeshop, they will not send you to a place where you can actually drink coffee, haha.
There are so many places where you can get great coffee. In my neighboorhoud (east) alone there are lots of cafes that serve really good coffee. For example Roost Koffie (also delicious brownies), Coffee Bru and Clubkoffie.
At CLOUD art & coffee they combine (like the name suggests) art and coffee.
These are just a few suggestions but there are lots and lots of really good cafe's where they sell great coffee. We are not really a Starbucks kind of nation (yet) :-).
