Area and history Tisfris
Cafe Tisfris is located in the Pentagon, a residential building, which has been designed by architect Theo Bosch. The complex including the courtyard, which was part of the city renewal of Amsterdam, was completed in 1983 soon after the first part of the subway was built. 2 Jaar after the complex was finalized Cafe Tisfris was founded in 1985 at the Sint Antoniebreestraat 142. Over 35 years later we are still at that same location.
At the end of the 1970s and beginning of the 1980s the municipality of Amsterdam, of which the city hall is located between Tisfris and the Stopera on the Waterloo square, had a plan to construct a 4-lane road next to the subway and the Stopera from the center of Amsterdam to Amsterdam East. However the local residents protested fiercely which led to a cancellation of the plans, but luckily not before the large bridge, adjacent to Tisfris and the Rembrandthuis was built. Because of this our guests can now fully enjoy a sizeable and sunny terrace with a spectacular view.
Eerder vandaag voor het eerst het Uit-menu geprobeerd. Eten was heerlijk en op tijd geserveerd. Geen stress gehad om op tijd bij onze voorstelling in de Stopera te zijn.
Had one of the best meals of my LIFE!
Lovely food and great service. Will be back for sure!
