Dear guests,

Unfortunately, we are forced to close our doors for a second time in this corona crisis, provisionally for four weeks.

This is because of the more stringent measures needed to cope with the rapidly increasing number of infections and hospital admissions.

Café de Jaren also believes that public health is the number one priority. We hope that the drastic new measures taken will have their intended effect.

We would like to thank you very much for all your visits since last June.

Perhaps we will continue with some form of take-away during this period.

More details will follow. So keep an eye on this website and on our Instagram!

Let’s hope that we can welcome you back as soon as possible.

In the meantime, stay healthy and be kind

Team Café de Jaren


about café de jaren

Café de Jaren, open since 1990, is a bright and spacious café located in the centre of Amsterdam, between Muntplein and the Amsterdam Music Theatre on Waterlooplein. Inside, high-ceilinged spaces make an attractive setting for the bar and restaurant. And at the back, the first-floor balcony and sunny canal-side terrace on the Kloveniersburgwal offer views across the River Amstel. With its own jetty, the café can also be visited by boat.

Café de Jaren owes its popularity to the quality of the food and drink it serves, the reading table, the canal-side terrace and balcony, the variety of tucked-away places to sit, and the light and spacious atmosphere. And last but not least, the hospitality. The two floors of the café are joined by an atrium.

Our first-floor balcony is non smoking. reservations on the balcony is possible.

Welcome at De Jaren.
