Café Bern

Swiss in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

With Alpine dishes that are ideal for the chillier months, this delightfully well-worn cafe overlooks the Waag, Nieuwmarkt's turreted former weigh house. On sunny summer days, customers eschew the hot cheese for beers in the sun on the square. People have been flocking here for more than 30 years for the Gruyère fondue and the entrecôte (steak).
