To be sure check out their website.
Toki is a fantastic and relaxed coffee spot with some pretty good banana cake just around the corner from the Haarlemerstraat. It's an ideal place to hang out a bit and get your strength back when you are browsing all the little shops on the Haarlemerstraat. The staff is amicable and helpful. Ask about the music that is playing, they will tell you all about it.
Last time I was there I had a latte and believe me, your caffeine levels will be 100% after finishing your coffee. The banana cake I had with my coffee was just to die for.
Toki has filtered and espresso coffee, with or without milk and a wide selection of cakes. And if you can't do dairy or ar a vegan no problem, for you they have options as well. Besides coffee and cake, they serve some amazing looking salads. On there menu was a black rice noodle, shiitake, pickled cucumber, radish and shiso bowl. I didn't have this my self, but it looked delicious.
According to there website, Toki means local hangout and that just what it is. There is a good mix of locals and tourist from all over the world. It's a place to talk, do some reading or working. But if you need to work all day, this isn't your place. The taped their outlets, so it's not possible to charge your laptop. I like that about this place, it's not an office.
So next time you're around the Haarlemerstraat, please check this place out. I'm sure you are going to like it. Let me know in the comments below what you think about it.
