Rusland, which simply means Russia in Dutch, is one of those long-established coffee shops that lays claim to being the first coffee shop Amsterdam ever saw. While this claim is disputed by the likes of the Bulldog and Mellow Yellow, there is no denying that Rusland has the relaxed, international atmosphere typical to a classic coffee shop. The split level interior has many cozy nooks for customers and the menu offers the standard range of soft drinks and teas as well as some tasty milkshakes. Rusland's location on a quiet street south of the Red Light District also makes it a great place to take a break during a crazy Amsterdam weekend.
