De Jaren
Nieuwe Doelenstraat 20-22 (625 57 71). map
Definitely a very 'grand' cafe, elegant but without too much pretension, catering to a younger public. The former bank building now hosts three bars and a restaurant. Modern interior with a tiled mosaic floor, modern art and a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the river Amstel. Separate roof terrace so you can dine outside, weather permitting. Reading table with Dutch and English magazines and newspapers. Reasonable prices.
Open 10am-1am (2am weekends).
Kitchen 6pm-10pm.

De Kroon
Rembrandtplein 17 (625 20 11). map
Second floor cafe with a ground floor terrace outside. Attracts a mixed crowd of locals and media types due to the fact that the rest of the building houses TV and radio studios. De Kroon is spacious and airy with an interior style blending old and new: chandeliers, large mirrors, contemporary art and modern colors. It has a large glassed-in balcony terrace with a beautiful view of the Rembrandtplein. The restaurant offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu.
Open 10am-1am (2am weekends).
Kitchen 11am-10pm.
