CT Coffee & Coconuts - Amsterdam
A former cinema building from the 1920s on Ceintuurbaan in Amsterdam, now locates grand café CT Coffee & Coconuts serving beverages and organic meals. The spatial interior with 3 open floors accommodates all kind of gatherings, from business meetings to parents with buggies, and from friends catching up to students and professionals who work remotely. The policy is great: everyone is welcome - no ban on laptop users, which is increasingly common in cafés in the Netherlands. The staff does instruct clients to be seated depending on the nature of the visit. Parents with buggies are on the ground floor, while a mix of different types of customers is spread over the 1st and 2nd floors. Next to this is a formidable choice of music on subtle volume.
