Description: Cafe de Jaren opened its doors in june 1990 as one of the largest cafes in Amsterdam, sporting an entire new and unique formula. The concept is mirrored in its spacious and light-rich architecture and interior decoration, as well as in its pleasant, non-pushing atmosphere. The large building features a spacious cafe on the ground floor with an international reading-table, a pleasant restaurant with large-choice salad bar on the first floor, as well as a superb canal-view terrace.Situated right in the centre of Amsterdam, Cafe de Jaren can be easily reached by public transport.

Called into this lovely light an airy cafe for a bite to eat. As it was only 11 we opted for the breakfast - which for €12.50 we had coffee, fresh orange, croissant an the most delicious baked egg with hot melting cheese an tomato whilst my partner chose to have ham instead. This came with a fantastic fresh bread roll to dip up all the melting cheesy goodness! Oh an the coffee was perfect, not too strong but rich an full of flavour!

Two great outdoor terraces with river views, airy spaces and salad bar! May not look like it from the street - so try!

This restaurant has two nice terraces and a salad bar that left us happy. The staff were friendly, but a bit overworked so service was a bit slow.

We came upon this restaurant by chance as we were walking one afternoon. We were very happy with our choice as the food was good, staff was friendly, and we sat by a big window on a sunny afternoon. Some people sat on the patio just outside the window, but we felt it was still a little cool for that. The patio is lovely, though, and would be a good choice on a warm day.

Recently I was meeting a Dutch friend in Amsterdam for a quick drink. He suggested Cafe de Jaren, that is always a good start when a local picks the place - they know good from bad.
I was impressed by the large space and well lite room. One of the first things I did notice was that this was a younger, hip crowd. The bar seemed to be busy and full of life.
We chose a table outside with a wonderful canal view. This was a great place to sit and talk and watch the canal traffic move lazily in front of us.
Our server was friendly and checked back with us often.
Sadly we only beer and snacks so I can't comment too much on the quality of the food. However the experience was a good one and not only would I come back here again for a drink, but I would come back here to try a meal as well.
