The 15th Best Café in the Netherlands: Café Slijterij Oosterling

Currently regarded the second best café in Amsterdam, Oosterling comes with some reputation.

The current owners are only the fourth generation of the Oosterling family to run the joint, which has been in the family since 1879. Like  most ‘brown’ bars in Amsterdam, Ossterling is tiny, plastered with adornments, and lit by woefully inadequate lamps and candles. It’s really quite cosy.

The barkeep we met was genuine and friendly- a rarity in these parts, unfortunately.
