Amsterdam is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a warm city, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy an iced coffee in the warmer months. As ice disappears from the streets we look for cold beverages instead and you know that the summer months have arrived once Amsterdams cafes start selling iced coffee. Here are our favourite places to visit for a lovely cold coffee brew.
1. Quartier Putain
📍Oudekerksplein 4, 1012 GZ
The lovely Quartier Putain in De Wallen serves fantastic iced lattes, and you can also get a delicious breakfast here, whether you’re after something savoury or one of their tasty pies. Check out the website to read the menu.
2. Coffee And Coconuts
📍Ceintuurbaan 282-284, 1072 GK
If you’re looking for tropical vibes this year, head to Coffee & Coconuts for a taste of that missing sunshine. Young coconuts, fresh juice, and coffee are available all day. Most of the food is vegan, vegetarian, and their iced coffee is delicious. Visit the website to read more about the cafe.
📍16A Eerste Anjeliers dwarsstraat, 1015 NR
If you’ve never had Vietnamese iced coffee before then we recommend you head out right now and pour some in your mouth – you won’t regret it! A great place to buy Vietnamese iced coffee is Ijsmanschap, and it’s made using condensed milk, so it’s super sweet. Check out the website to read the menu.
📍Reestraat 19, 1016 DM
Pluk is one of the coolest cafes and boutiques in Amsterdam, filled with beautiful things that decorate the room. Their food and drinks are equally beautiful and the iced coffee is delicious. You can read the menu on the website.
5. Back To Black
📍Weteringstraat 48, 1017 SP
📍Van Hallstraat 268, 1051 HM
The iced coffee at Back To Black is as delicious as everything else there – very. There’s a branch in central Amsterdam and one in Amsterdam West, and you can read the menu for either on the website.
📍Elandsgracht 53, 1016 TN
When they named this place Koffiespot, they meant business, and they really do serve a fantastic brew. You can also grab a matcha latte from here, which takes delicious. You can read the full menu on the website.
