An Amsterdam restaurant with history
In the 1960s and 70s, great-grandfather Meuwese was one of Amsterdam’s best hairdressers. He regularly cut the hair of thousands of the city's residents. After getting their hair cut, customers would sit down with mom and dad Meuwese, who would serve them a nice, strong cup of coffee.
The family enjoyed serving these customers so much that they decided to expand the cafe into a restaurant. The family paid a great deal of attention to finding good cooks who could truly serve up something special to guests. Its location in the heart of Amsterdam helped the new restaurant become one of the city's more famous places.
Read what our guests say about Cafe Meuwese
"Had four large Heinekens reasonably priced and a couple of cheeseburgers which came with a little salad and a sauce. The burger was very nice, would have again, cooked medium, waitress made sure medium is ok beforehand. 1euro for a little cheese on the burger seems expensive but I guess it is Amsterdam. Had to buy fries separately at 2.50 (I think) which is cheaper than other places but for the cost of the burger maybe a few chips could be included. Nice atmosphere sat in the sun and good service."
"Great place to have lunch, great service, good prices. Very friendly staff. We reccomend the BLT clubsandwich, the home made burger and the sandwiches. Our kids loved it as well."
