Café de Vergulde Gaper

Brown Cafe in Western Canal Ring

Decorated with old chemists' bottles and vintage posters, this former pharmacy has a canal-side terrace with afternoon sun and occasional live jazz. It's popular with locals, especially for after-work drinks. The name translates to the 'Golden Gaper', for the open-mouthed bust of a Moor traditionally posted at Dutch apothecaries.
