A glass of tap water? No problem! Use the toilet, but of course! Leaving the key for the neighbor? We are here anyway! Little things that are indicative of what we stand for: hospitality, friendliness and conviviality. We make coffee with love, enjoy a chat and show the way to lost tourists. A smile makes that thse coffee tastes wrong, fresh orange juice or home-baked apple pie tastes better.
Café Smit & Voogt lies on the threshold of the Plantagebuurt, opposite the Desmet Studios and on the lively Plantage Middenlaan. In the summer our terrace has sun all day and you look out on the trees of the Wertheimpark or a colorful parade of cyclists, hikers and tinkling trams on their way to the east or center. With us you can have breakfast from 10am with yoghurt, a croissant or an omelette and lunch until 16.00 with different sandwiches, salads and soups. In the evening Café Smit & Voogt has a varied menu, including our classic pork tenderloin, a daily snack and always at least one vegetarian dish and all day bitterballen (from Oma Bob’s), fries and other snacks.
The people at Café Smit & Voogt, together with a varied collection of regular guests, casual passers-by, Artis employees, tourists and local residents, provide a relaxed, cordial and personal atmosphere. This makes Café Smit & Voogt what it is and ensures that we dare to call ourselves one of the most atmospheric neighborhood cafés in Amsterdam.
