With my lack of sleep these days, I keep yawning away all day at the office. One yawn is cute. Two yawns, it’s alright. Constant yawning, embarrassing. I hope the jet lag wears off soon and I’ll find myself sleeping like a baby at night again. Soon. Fingers crossed. Until then, I’m chucking away
champagne coffee one cup after another.
Tucked away in the corners of Amsterdam’s canal streets, is a tiny coffee bar that caters to your coffee needs. Back to Black, named like my favourite Amy Winehouse song (best version: Live from Paradiso album (rare)). Prices are agreeable (EUR2 for an espresso / EUR3,40 for a flat white) and their homemade sweets are a pure delight. The place is decorated in a semi-modern boho chic style (lots of succulents – will this trend ever end?). It’s small but it’s cozy and that has a sort of charm to it.
There’s a cat too, standing by the door kingly, greeting you as you come in. Only coffee lovers allowed.
Opens at 8am on weekdays / 10am on weekends and closes at 6pm.
