Throughout the years Restaurant van Puffelen has evolved from a classic Amsterdam brown pub into the bustling hotspot at the city centre of Amsterdam. The original café was four times smaller than Van Puffelen is nowadays, yet the atmosphere and homely feeling never disappeared. Some people say they never want to leave because there is always another corner to discover. “Everyone is welcome,” says Laurenze Walet, operator of Van Puffelen. “We notice that everybody, from all walks of life, feels right at home here.” Restaurant van Puffelen never loses its comfortable, stylish and intimate atmosphere partly due to the layout of the rooms.
