Scheltema is located in the centre of Amsterdam, just a stone’s throw from the Dam square. In this café you can enjoy a cup of coffee, a fresh lunch or an affordable dinner. Enjoy the homemade Dutch specialities like meatballs, 'stamppot' or sole fish. Also, their fresh steaks and hamburgers with fries and salad are a must try!
This charming family owned restaurant exists more than 130 years and was a favorite to writers and journalists in former times. Still literature lovers in Amsterdam know where to find this place. The atmosphere is relaxed, which makes the customers feel like at home. The historic interior has -for the most part- been preserved. Step back in time in this cosy café and enjoy a Dutch meal in a historic atmosphere!
