Loved this place. A chill respite from a busy tourist area. Grab a coffee, sit down, hang out, people-watch, chat, take it easy. Nice for breakfast, too.

I bought a few bags of coffee beans to bring home. While at the store, I had a cup of soy latte, but it was average. The place has 2 communal tables that were taking up most of the space... not a place to feel cozy, but for a quick rest, it's ok.

We just had a coffee and apple pie here. The apple pie was homemade and very tasty. The latte macchiato was good too. They offer free tap water, which we thought was a nice gesture.

A busy coffee place with a couple of tables. Serving great coffee (tried their Flat White) and several bakery options. The owner provided a really nice service as well. Top points!

After a long day walking around Amsterdam we really needed a good afternoon coffee pick-me-up. Screaming Beans provided the solution with an excellent strong but smooth blend of great tasting organic coffee. The cafe is also a really comfortable place to sit for a bit and send off a few emails. Highly recommend.
