In 1743 Jacob Hooy started here his trade in coffee, tea and spices from all over the world. The front of the house has a classical cornice facade. The store is situated near the Nieuwmarkt where the daily market is held and where you also find the Waag. This was a gate in the medieval city wall which is later converted into a weighing-house.
