De Koffieschenkerij is a charming cafe located within Amsterdam's oldest building, Oude Kerk (Old Church). Located in the city's De Wallen neighborhood, better known to tourists as the Red Light District, the quaint two-storey cafe even shares a wall with the room in which Rembrandt signed his marriage certificate.

Serving a variety of locally sourced pastries, soups and other snacks in addition to coffee and teas, De Koffieschenkerij is a masterful culmination of ancient architecture and contemporary dining trends.

The space is warm and candlelit, offering tired tourists an unconventional spot to warm up and take a break from biking around the busy international city. Over 800 years old, Oude Kerk is the burial place of Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer.
