The sun is slowly appearing again, and we can't hide the spring jitters anymore. In our heads, we are already spending all day, on a terrace, with the sun on our heads and a drink in our hands. We would like to share our favorite terraces in Amsterdam with you!
If you ask us, the best terrace in Amsterdam is, of course, our very own Bar Kantoor. Our baby in Westerpark has a huge terrace where you can enjoy the sun from the early morning until late at night. Try one of our organic dishes or enjoy a glass of wine with a vegan snack, there is something for everyone.
Fromagerie Kef in Noord
If you are a real cheese lover, this is where you have to be. At the tasting room of Fromagerie Kef in North, you can enjoy a cheese tasting, with wine and bread at one of their picnic tables at the van der Pekplein. The staff are very passionate and love to tell you all about their cheeses, with lots of sun you have the perfect combination for a heavenly afternoon.
This hidden treasure in the center of Amsterdam is one of a kind. Next to the beautiful glass café, there is a courtyard with a terrace and some picnic tables on the grass. This cute spot is the perfect place for a quiet and peaceful organic brunch in the sun. If the sun decides to stay gone, you can always find a table inside and enjoy the view into the garden.
At the Bilderdijkstraat in West, this casual looking café is without doubt indispensable on this list. With their weekly changing menu, delicious natural wines that are served by the glass, and relaxed atmosphere, they have it all. On top of this, they also have a cute little terrace just on the edge of a park. Make sure to come early, cause when the sun is out, expect the terrace to be completely full.
When you are in the East area of Amsterdam, Louie Louie is the place to be. The whole place is focused on the bar, but this doesn't mean that you can't also enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They serve South-American inspired foods, and you cannot leave without trying some of their bar bites. Their big and sunny terrace is their great asset, and very popular in spring because it is completely wind free.
Libertine Petit Café
In the heart of the Jordaan, the little libertine sister has a small and cozy, but very sunny terrace. With the Noordermarkt as their front garden, you'll find yourself in a typical Amsterdam setting but then with a French touch. Get a croissant for breakfast, a croque monsieur for lunch and dine with artichoke and haricot verts.
Just across the street from our hotels The Tire Station and Conscious Hotel Vondelpark, one of Amsterdam's, if not, most sunny terraces is located there. While sitting on one of their comfy couches the sun will be on your face all day, while you are enjoying their delicious foods and drinks. The vibe is very relaxed and their staff is extremely well trained for the Amsterdam terrace chaos, so you never have to wait very long.
