Café de Jaren, situated in the city centre, has a long and memorable history, once being the place where Rembrandt used to paint. It is also known for being one of the cosiest cafes in Amsterdam. The spacious building, which used to be a bank, is now the perfect location for locals and tourists to meet: “Many guests just keep coming back,” explains co-owner of De Jaren, Janet Griffin. “Some of them have been brought up here. They came here as little children and now that they are older, they come back with their own families or work here.”
