The Sijf (Syf) is a great place to hang out and to enjoy the people passing by, since it is located in a nice little street, a pedestrian promenade in the old town of Rotterdam. It is a Bar and Restaurant and therefore it provides food ranging from sandwiches and toasts to bigger meals and coffees as well as desserts.
The staff is very friendly and willing to help and the whole establishment is built in an artsy decorated old town house with nice stucco and mosaic facade. Its location in the center of Rotterdam makes the Sijf a perfect place from which you can go to the upper part of Rotterdam’s center city as well as down to the old port, with its ships. It is located in the middle of both.
The Cappuccino I had was very delicious served with a shot of cream-topped liquor as a side and a cookie, and the Hot Chocolate is also super-delicious served with a cream-top as well. The prices of both as well as the other prices are reasonable.
Have a look for yourself:
Also the inside of the pub is great, since it features this nice old wood on two floors creating an elegant and stylish atmosphere to spend also a longer stretch of time in this establishment.

The Bottom Line: The Suif located in the Oude Binnenweg 115, is in the center of Rotterdam’s old town. Its ideal location let you be in no time at the port or in the northern part of the center city of Rotterdam. This place is an artsy pub/bar/restaurant with a nice and sunny patio inviting you to watch the people pass by in this pedestrian promenade.
