Handsome Jack’s is an urban canteen dishing up tasty window food and superior roasted coffees. Created by Hannah; a Dutchie from a long line of coffee lovers, and Charin; a Kiwi lad whose forefathers were renowned for their kitchen perfection, the idea came about after we travelled the world in search of culinary pleasure. We found that all the places we loved had a simple winning combination: a holy trinity of great food, great coffee and great service. So we wanted to have our own place in Amsterdam offering exactly that. Conveniently located on the Schinkelkade, by the water, we’re a stone’s throw away from Vondelpark, Overtoom and Amstelveenseweg. You’ll want to keep an eye on us as in the coming months we’ll be expanding our seating area and rolling out our delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch menus. And who exactly is Handsome Jack, we hear you ask? He’s our enigmatic, mysterious benefactor…We can’t tell you too much, but you’ll find signs of him throughout our space, so you can make up your own mind. Come say hi when you’re next in the ‘buurt.’ We look forward to welcoming you as our guests.
From the very beginning we wanted Handsome Jack’s to be a place you could relax in and call home. We converted an artist’s studio to be here, and fully intend on keeping that light, bright creative spirit alive as we breathe new life into the space. Every month we’ll be planning a range of activities, events and gatherings, that will bring people together to eat, drink and be merry... Think movie nights, Sunday roasts and more. On our shelves and shop areas we also showcase the talents and wares of local artisans, artists and traders, bringing a unique combination of food and storefront. Our space is also available for your functions and events, so get in touch if you have an idea for an event (we love collaborations!) or want to know more.
" Friendly and kind staff, a bright and happy space, and yummy food and drinks are sure to make Handsome Jack’s your new favorite hang out. Visit Handsome Jack’s now for great coffee and sweets, and stay tuned as this cafe develops into more. "
" Perfect cupcakes and great coffee. "
" Sinds een week is er een nieuwe plek voor heerlijke koffie in Zuid! Op de Schinkelkade zit Handsome Jack’s, een koffiebar en soon-to-be ontbijt/brunch/lunch-plek. Wij gingen gelijk even proeven en een kijkje nemen. Op de koffie is alvast niks aan te merken, dus wij wachten met spanning op de heerlijkheden die binnenkort uit de (internationale) keuken zullen komen! "
" So while Handsome Jack’s is still not 100% operational, I warmly advise you to check it out before all the hipsters descend on it. Just kidding. No, really. "
" Soon Handsome Jack’s will be more than a coffee bar: a brunch spot with cocktails and a place for special events. This one is definitely another STORY154 favorite! Hope to come back soon and sit in the sun one afternoon. XX, Michelle "
We would love to hear from you!
