Some of you might know the popular tableware from Blond Amsterdam. Blond Amsterdam sells the cutest mugs, plates and other kitchen material. Every piece has it’s own design consisting of colorful drawings and quotes in a special theme. The tableware is so popular that a lot of people outside of The Netherlands, like Belgium, know of it. But what most people don’t know is that they also have a café in Amsterdam: Café Blond. I took my best friend to the café and we enjoyed an afternoon tea!
There is a small store inside the café where they sell the tableware. But unfortunately they did not have the mug I was looking for. I was trying to find the Amsterdam one, but apparently that one was sold out.
What I love the most about this café is, of course, their tableware. They use the pretty, typical Dutch blue-white mugs and plates. As you can see we ordered the sweet afternoon tea. In this formula you can drink as much tea as you like and share this delicious sweets. What we got: cheesecake, stroopwafels, carrot cake, apple cake, brownies,… It was too much! We didn’t get to finish it all but we did taste one of each!
The interior of Café Blond is so beautiful. They have velvet couches, a brick wall, a big Amsterdam light board and a wall full of plates. Each plate has it’s own funny quote. Some of the quotes were:
- You can’t be everybody’s cup of tea.
- In coffee we trust
- Soup of the day: Champagne
I want a wall like this at home haha! Reading the quotes can make your day a little better.
If you want to enjoy an afternoon tea as well, make sure to make a reservation a couple of days in advance. It is quiet busy and they don’t always accept afternoon tea reservations.
