Carstens Café

Carstens Café is the younger, relaxed sibling of Carstens, located opposite Amsterdam Central Station (Prins Hendrikkade 34). Our all day dining concept makes it a versatile space to meet friends, work colleagues before or after work as well as being the perfect pit stop before taking in the sights Amsterdam has to offer. The café offers a sunny terrace and above all a cozy place for a good cup of coffee, a Dutch lunch and drinks.

The menu is suited to all times of the day and incorporates some Dutch classics with a twist. They are proud to work with Lindenhoff for the best beef burgers as well as Holtkamp serving the best pastries in Amsterdam. You can also go to Carstens Café for a smoothie or energizer for the necessary energy boost. Prefer a drink at the bar? Order different genevers or a gin & tonic with Zuidam Dutch Courage gin.


The café has a special history. For example, a brown café, French bistro and billiard café have been there before. As various renovations have taken place, Carstens Café attaches great importance to the old state and has brought back the authentic details. Old tiles have been restored and now show off in the café.


The interior design of Carstens Cafe has been inspired by a Scandinavian Modern style making it light and fresh.
