Tom Coffee + Paper Goods is a gem located next to the Rotte in Rotterdam Noord. It’s just a few steps away from my place, so I consider myself lucky yay! They have a cute and cozy space with amazing coffee and delightful delicacies. The owner is welcoming and nice, adding to the overall happiness of the place. There are a couple of seats both inside and outside, and you can even grab a coffee to go while walking by the Rotte.
What about other offerings? They also sell planners, calendars, postcards, and other stationery products. It’s a lovely little store where you can spend some quality time. Also, during certain public holidays, they host a small street party in front of the shop next to the canal. The event has a little stage, nice music, and delicious bites. I had the pleasure of being there for the last King’s Day, spending the entire day with my friends, enjoying great music, the friendly neighborhood atmosphere, and the amazing food they served. It’s definitely a wonderful alternative to your regular coffee place! Last but not least what I love most is that the owner is encouraging his followers to bring plants to make the shop front greener. That’s their goal, to adopt some plants to offer greener fresh outdoor seating options for people! Hope you enjoy this little cozy place!
