La Tertulia has to be one of the most laid back coffeeshops in Amsterdam. The upper level is minimalistic but comfortable and, although this is not one of the highly decorated coffeeshop palaces, the indoor plants and general ambience make it one of the nicest places I know of in town in which one can really relax and enjoy oneself. The founder of La Tertulia was seriously into nature, hence the lovely interior garden, and also the planted area across the street for which he fought the city council to prevent it being just another parking space. The mother and daughter team now running the shop offer a small, but excellent value selection of products. Coffee, teas, fresh fruit juices, milkshakes, toasties, and filled rolls are also available at very reasonable prices.
