21 coffee spots in Amsterdam open before 8 am

I became a dog dad not long ago. While adjusting to the demands of a bossy Greek rescue pupper, I discovered a few must-haves of my own. One such need is an early cup of coffee in the long darkness of a January morning. Move over Maslow’s Hierarchy; I need baristas at dawn. And guess what? They exist, even in Amsterdam.

If I’ve missed anything, drop me a comment!

LOCALS Speciality Coffee

De Wasserette

Full coffee menu, breakfast bites and larger brunch staples; all for grabs at de Wasserette. Better still, the cafe has extensive outdoor seating, ideal for watching the busy market traders and locals go about their daily business.


Where: 11 locations across Amsterdam

BBROOD is a bakery rather than a cafe, but their doors are open at 7.30 most mornings, and they have coffee and pastries to go. That’s all we need to know!

Broodje Daan

Broodje Daan is a charming anomaly amid this contemporary cafes and bakeries list. The no-frills cafe is open from 6 am, five days a week, and offers low-cost sandwiches and drinks to the masses. An Amsterdam institution.

De Koffie Salon

Where: 3 locations: Spui, Utrechtsestraat, Eerste Constantijn Huygensstraat
When: 7 am, 7-days a week

There are three Koffie Salon branches around Amsterdam Centrum. So you can source an early brew without a hitch if you’re sleepless around Spui, surly in Utrechtsestraat, or jonesing at 1st C. Huygensstraat.
