Coffee and work in Amsterdam Oud Zuid (Old South)
Let’s say you live in the south of Amsterdam and don’t have wifi at home. Well, not having wifi is a rare phenomenon, but currently, I don’t. I just moved to this amazing, light place but feel a bit handicapped. My wifi will work in one week, and until then I am bounded to coffee-place around. And the best thing to do in a new neighborhood is discovering new coffee places! This morning, I found my new favorite coffee bar CityHouse in Amsterdam Oud Zuid.
CityHouse is a non-profit organization. This means that the owners work strictly as volunteers, and do not take a salary from the cafe. Because the owners are not paid by CityHouse, every cent received is either reinvested in the organization itself, or donated to a charitable cause.
The music and the view
Not every cafe is suitable as a quiet place to work. Well, CityHouse in Amsterdam Oud Zuid is. The music is relaxed and on the background, the people working here are not constantly asking if I want another coffee and just let me do my thing. Very nice, because I can concentrate and get so much work done. And the coffee, I will order because it is so good. As well as the homemade muffins, the veggie wrap, salads and omelet’s.
Today I sad right at the window, facing the street, the cars, trams and bikers. Although it is a very busy street, I wasn’t bothered by the noise. I guess the windows have double-glass which made the street-business just an interesting view. I guess not having wifi at home is not so bad at all!
