Café Brecht

The first week after reopening is done. We were happy to see so many familiar faces again! But we also temporarily change our opening hours. The coming weeks we are every day open from 16 till 23 hours. In the weekend we sometimes stay open for an extra hour when it's 'gezellig' (cosy).

We take no reservations by email or telephone. Just come by and we tell you whether there is space. But of course you can always call (020-6272211) Brecht shortly before arrival to check whether there is a free table. In that case we'll keep the table 15 minutes free for you. 

Sunday may 31 we are closed. Also for to go. We use the day to redesign Brecht for the reopening on monday.


Brecht is a Berlin-style 'living room café' located at de Weteringschans 157 in Amsterdam. This means table lamps, old armchairs and your grandmothers coffee cups. No forced trendyness yet timeless romance. Brecht is open every day from 11.00 am till 01.00 am. Beside good Italian coffee and German beers we serve the entire day food like piadina's, Brezels, cakes and little bites. We cannot take reservations
