You may have heard of the Maker Café, in de Hallen passage in Amsterdam. A wonderful store where local craftsmen and talented creators showcase and sell their products. But only a small amount of people know the Maker Café, that is located on the top floor. We checked it out and ordered a cup of (pretty amazing) coffee.
You could easily miss it, the Maker Café. They’ve been here since last september though and it’s time that more people took notice. Why? Well, for one, the coffee is good. Very good. They are using Rotterdam-based Manhattan roasters coffee beans, that created a special Maker Café blend for Amsterdam. You see? Both cities can go hand in hand! The coffee combined with the rich and creamy Queens of Dairy, creates one of the best cappuccinos you’ve tasted in Amsterdam. Yep, I dare to say it. The barista’s behind the counter and well trained and also serve amazing filter coffee, if that’s your thing.
The interior is all available to buy and created by talented craftsmen that are connected to the Maker Store. From chairs, to tables and even the art on the walls. With a touch of pastel pink, the Maker Café is a comfortable place for a quiet sit down after a stroll over the Ten Katemarket or foodhallen, which are just around the corner. There is room to sit down around 20 people, so it’s not big, but it’s good enough.
To top it all off, and perhaps best of all, the Maker Café offers a monthly coffee subscription, that is just too good to pass. It works like this; You buy a monthly description and for the entire month you can order and drink as many coffees or tea as you’d like. A subscription cost €35,- per month, but for your first month is only €25,-! If you drink 1 coffee a day, (and you’re in the hood) you save at least..well, you can do the math right? If that’s still a bit much for you, you can also opt for a stampcard and receive a free drink when it’s full.
See you there?
