Café del Mondo, founded in 1994, owes its name to the French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo. 'He was almost the spitting image of my father. My mother was a fan of both,' says founder and owner Barry van den Berg. 'That's why I named the café Belmondo, as a tribute to both my father and Belmondo.' Unfortunately, we had to change the name once the actor got wind of it, which we thought was a shame. But now it's Café del Mondo,’ which has become a household name in Amsterdam!'
