The Tearoom

On the second floor we have recently launched a new surprise: the smallest tearoom in Amsterdam!

In a sphere of privacy and quietness up to five people can enjoy, among others, breakfast or lunch, a modest Thé Gourmand, an Afternoon Tea, a special menu around the holidays or a tea course. All arrangements are based on one or more specialty teas from the shop and pastry from our own kitchen. Obviously of high quality.
