Set in a semi-industrial area in the north of Amsterdam, De Ceuvel is an unusual place. Polluted plot turning into a sustainable ‘urban oasis’ after a group of people was given the opportunity by the municipality to use the land. Biggest eye-catcher are the old houseboats placed on the land, connected by a beautiful boardwalk. They now serve as offices for several creative and social enterprises.
Café de Ceuvel is a bar/restaurant on the site, build out of reused materials, with a big terrace adjoining an old industrial channel. They grow numerous herbs and other plants which they use in the kitchen. They used to have some meat and fish on the menu but since early 2020 their menu is fully vegan and will stay that way. Only non-vegan stuff is chocolate milk and cow’s milk for coffee. Try their home-made lemonade!
