Four Leaves, Amsterdam


I don’t know you but for me coffee means:

-6.30, please help me to stay awake,

-10.00, time to fulfill the battery and have a chat,

-13.00, let’s have a coffee to finish properly the lunch.

Tea is different. Tea means (at least to me) time, having time, taking the time. So when I discovered Four Leaves in Amsterdam I felt understood.


Four Leaves is a shop/tearoom for tea lovers. It is situated between the Rijksmuseum and the antiques district on the Spiegelgracht. The location is deliciously vintage and so is the interior; chic, delicate, beautifully outdated and peaceful. Not only can you savour a special beverage but you can also go back home with tea, sculptures, glasses, piece of art….


Four Leaves is where you go to have a break, to step out of the traffic, the stress, the noise (well, you are in Amsterdam!) and indulge yourself Β with some quality time and excellent tea (or coffee by the way). It is rare to find a place where you instantly feel more like a guest than a client, a place where you want to put out your shoes and let your mind wander; it is rare and so precious.


May you have a splendid day.



ps: did I mention that they have a terrific chocolate-truffel cake?
