The kafe, a small coffee shop in the heart of Amsterdam’s Old Town, is still buzzing.
Last week, the first coffee shop opened in the area for the first time in a decade.
Kafe owners Yannick De Vries and Jean-Claude Bouchard hope to be open in two months.
“It’s going to be a great experience, because it will be a completely different coffee shop.
It will be different from anything that we have been doing before,” De Vrys told Dutch broadcaster NOS.”
It’s really going to feel like an international shop.
There will be more than 10 different kinds of coffees in there,” Bouchards said.
“We are hoping that in two years, we will have three or four places, and that will make the place more popular than it was before,” he said.
In recent years, the coffee shop has been undergoing a renovation.
The former owner, who also runs the cafe’s parent company, is selling the entire space.
The coffee shop was established in 1904 by Dutch immigrant Georges Huygens and his wife.
He wanted to create a place where he could sit down and talk to people.
When the Boucharts opened the first Kafe in 1912, it was a small shop with just a couple of tables.
After the war, the owners wanted to open another coffee shop, which eventually became the first kafe in Amsterdam.
Today, the old coffee shop is home to some 50 people.
It’s an area that is still full of young people.
