Typical old style bar in Amsterdam. Simple interior, good beer. Nice place to meet with friends. Only a few cold snacks available.

“Friendly little bar/cafe”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Walking around Amsterdam we needed a coffee and snack and as rain was starting we took refuge in Cafe de Pels. The window table was occupied by a number of locals having coffee and talking quietly who nodded to us on entering.
The guy behind the bar was a delight who quickly found us an English menu and proceeded to supply us a great coffee and snack. He also went out of his way to give us directions and where we should go for various items.
It's a great little care/bar with atmosphere and service. Would go back again.

“Delicious place for a break while shopping in the Jordaan neighbourhood”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This café is a charming little hidden place in the Jordaan area.

It has a really delicious cappuccino and a great service, fast and friendly, which is not really the standard in the Netherlands. I mean, it's not difficult to find a friendly service, but plus fast, it's to ask too much. In any case, Cafe de Pels combine both.

And they serve your coffee with this Java chocolate which is great.

A nice place for a break while going for shopping in the 9 little streets (9 straatjes) in the heart of Amsterdam shopping area.

“Cute little cafe”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

We stopped in here for a quick drink one afternoon. It is a cute, funky little place and was busy when we visited. We did not sample the food, but the menu looked simple and tasty. Right within the 9 Streets area, it's a great place to stop for refreshment when enjoying some retail therapy.
