TOKI, Amsterdam: Stone tables & tortoiseshell spoons – is this the perfect café?

How a coffee shop can be so different to every other I’ve ever set foot in, while still getting every décor touch so totally right, I cannot understand.  But that’s TOKI, the small Amsterdam café that left me caffeinated, awestruck and desperate to never leave (or perhaps open my own coffee shop that was even a fraction as cool as TOKI is!).

Set back from the shopping street Haarlemmerdijk, TOKI has the friendliest barista/owner, who is serving up exceptional coffee from Bonanza Coffee Roasters (each with those tortoiseshell teaspoons), Craft Brewers beers and drool-worthy loaf cakes (including an excellent Chocolate Mud Cake).

The interior is perfection.  A deep blue floor, sink-into-me sofa and the most incredible stone table – this place is so photogenic it hurts.  There are lots of independent hipster magazines around the place for coffee-side reading too.
