On my recent trip to Amsterdam, I’ve been staying with a friend in the Jordaan neighborhood. Most mornings, I’d find myself at Moods Coffee Corner, a great little coffee house a 10 minute walk away with fantastic croissants and delicious coffee served by the nicest staff I’ve come across.
Inside Moods, you find a simple, small space with a handful of seats upstairs, some seating in the front of the store, and a couple tables out front. Moods is situated on the corner of an active intersection along the houseboat-lined Lijnbaansgracht canal at the very end of Lindengracht Street where the seating out front affords an active view of the community.
Moods provides free wifi and a relaxing atmosphere to catch up on email, read a book, or meet foreign travelers staying at the nearby hotel or locals who come to their favorite coffee house. Everyone is friendly here and if you’re visiting on a Saturday, you’ll get to experience the farmers market that occurs across the street and spans several blocks with an abundance of produce, meats, cheeses, crafts, and electronics.
While there are a lot of places you can go to for your morning coffee and contemplate the day ahead, Moods has been enjoyable pocket of comfort to begin my day.
