Why locals love it

Rum Baba followed its sister café Coffee Bru in breathing new life into parts of Amsterdam East that were a bit neglected but no more. Rum Baba is a wonderful, bright and friendly café where all cakes are home baked, all teas are personally sourced and all coffees are roasted by the owner. Amazing place, especially in the summer.

Why you should visit it

Rum Baba is a true neighbourhood magnet and that's why people love it. It brings different kinds of people together who go there to share a great cuppa coffee or tea and enjoy one of their extremely delicious cakes. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and it will invite you to a part of Amsterdam that's still relatively unknown.

Special tip

A yummy cup of loose leaf tea pulled with their stunning Spirit espresso machine.

Thanks for the tip, Alex. Really lovely cakes here. The cafe on the corner nearby called The Cottage is also very nice for breakfast.
