Entering café Louis is like stepping into a piece of heritage, topped off with a cosy laid-back interior and the feeling of a local pub. This hidden favourite at the Singel effortlessly combines casualness with a feeling of exquisiteness. With a beautiful view of Amsterdam’s scenic water-ways, the terrace is inviting on both warm sunny afternoons and colder autumn nights. Great company at all times is the picturesque sunset and the never-ending line of people walking by. So, what is on the menu? “Specialty beers,” laughs Joes Janse, owner of Louis. “We serve over 50 types of specialty beers, many from small local breweries.”
