About Grand Café Krasnapolsky

The young 22-year old A.W. Krasnapolsky arrived in Amsterdam in 1856. With his tailor’s diploma in his pocket, Adolph Wilhelm had no problem finding work. After a busy day’s work, he sought relaxation in one of the old coffee-houses around Dam Square. In 1866, he buys one of the ruinous coffee-houses and within a short period of time the café is transformed into one of the most famous establishment of Amsterdam. The new café is popular and the high quality food brings the café fame. Because of the homely atmosphere it becomes a home away from home for many of the guests. Nowadays the legacy of A.W. Krasnapolsky covers much more than just a café. But however much has changed; excellent quality, good products and a warm atmosphere remain the key ingredients for Grand Café Krasnapolsky, even in the twenty-first century.
