This cafe and bar is brilliant. We went in the evening where it is the perfect place for chilled beers, with a great atmosphere and good music.
We also went back during the day for tea and cake - the rhubarb hot juice was amazing, especially as we were there in winter.
Stunny decor, it really does feel like Berlin type bar. The staff were fantastic and gave us plenty of tips for decent clubs in Amsterdam.

A little bit of Germany in Amsterdam! With it's neo-classical furniture this place oozes nostalgia from the Weimar days and has a good selection of alternative German softdrinks and good local beer + Eastern European. I live across the border in Belgium, a 4-monthly visit to this atmospheric bar is a unconditional must!

We went there because of the name, as we saw it passing by tram and what a great decision! The best expresso we had in Amsterdam, also at the best price, great atmosphere, cozy, beautiful in a very very unique style! Lots of small sofas and tables and chairs, makes you not want to leave. We actually, after a morning coffee, got back there that same night for a beer!
Super friendly staff, beautiful and not expensive at all - you couldn't ask for more!

The Cafe Brecht is a very nice little coffee place, with comfortable chairs and sofas, nice light, and reasonable prices. You are so well sitted there when is cold outside it's difficult to get up and leave!

We found Cafe Brecht while walking to the centre of Amsterdam. The place, unique and cozy, is really a great discover. I would suggest you to get here for breakfast: a tea and one of the best apple pies you will have ever tasted in your own life, I promise!
