Cafe de Tuin – Your typical cafe

Cafe de Tuin has such a nice atmosphere. The interior is classic and the customers are diverse, which makes it the perfect mix between modern and dated.

De neef van Fred – Water terrace perfection

They created a terrace that makes you feel like you are basically in the water, with a little bar next to it. Boats float by and get a quick drink to go...

Bakkerij Ulmus – Sourdough bakery!

I know that sounds dramatic, but their pastries are irresistible! Everything is sourdough based, which means they make their own yeast for the bread.

Lab111 – Pizza and a Movie theater!

This movie theater shows movies you don't see every day and sometimes they choose a director whose movies they then show. Wes Anderson month for example.

Festina Lente – Favorite workspot

Because it is not known as a place where lots of people work, it is actually a very nice place to work from remotely. And the staff is always so nice!

About me

About me
Hi! My name is Isidore and I was born and raised in Amsterdam. I have always been a curious person so I decided to make it my job! I am a journalist for a Dutch broadcaster and I make shows about breaking stigmas and about topics that are important in today's society. As a journalist, I also LOVE writing a lot. I have written down everything about my travels, I write poetry and now I write about the most beautiful city in the world: Amsterdam!

Why Amsterdam?
Amsterdam is very special in many ways. People get around on bikes and bicycles create a certain freedom in getting around. Not only that: the architecture is very special and the buildings have a lot of history. And lastly, Amsterdam is known for many historic icons such as Heineken, Anne Frank, and Rembrandt. But not only is the city special in these aspects: Amsterdam has a special place in my heart. The city is small enough to give the safe and familiar feeling of a village, but I also like that you can be anonymous on the street as well. I love that I can go to museums, the theater, have some coffee and also have enough access to green spaces. Amsterdam is so kind, I hope everyone will experience it like that when they visit.
