About Amsterdam Café

Amsterdam Café first opened in Auburn in 1991 in a quaint restaurant space including an outdoor patio. It didn’t take long for it to become a town favorite. Upscale, yet casual, you can always expect a delicious dining experience.

The menu is based on local farm fresh, seasonal ingredients. Staples include lunch favorites like the Amsterdam Turkey Wrap or Crab Cake and Avocado Sandwich. Dinner options range from fresh seafood to steak. Plus, there are appetizers, cocktails and dessert alone that are worth a visit!

Amsterdam Café in the Park

Did you know there was a second Amsterdam Café in Auburn? Located in the Research and Innovation Center at the Auburn Research Park, it serves lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. With outdoor and indoor seating, this location is more of a fast casual or grab-and-go option.

This location of the café can be found off South Donahue Drive inside the Auburn Research Park. Diners do not need a university parking permit or to work at the Park to stop by. There is plenty of nearby free parking available!

Additionally, the Dam Food Truck is on campus near Owen Hall this semester, and the Dam Taco Truck is near Haley Center for more Amsterdam dining options.
