Rescued from closure by local residents
Neighbourhood café 't Sluisje is housed on a beautiful location in a 16th century house in the northern part of Amsterdam. The bar, that has been run for a century by De Ruijter family, is now owned by residents who live in the neighbourhood. In 2017, no less than 85 residents pulled together 900,000 euros to take over the 100-year-old pub. The atmosphere in the cafe is still the same.
Café 't Sluisje is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The place is famed for its appeltaart (fresh-baked apple tart) and homemade soups.
