My experience was terrible because I found elements in the cakes that are a danger to health. First I found in my apple cake a hair. Thinking it was an accident that it can happen, I complained to the waiter and get another piece of...More

This place has a baker who makes the pies from scratch. Delicious, not too sweet. Very nice afternoon treat.

Had a delicious apple pie here! Also had really neat seating. We sat in this seating that had an elevated table outside, so we were higher up, which was amazing for people watching. It is at a very busy corner on a canal, which made...More

We had such a fun evening in this pub. The draft beer was delicious but the apple pie was immense!! Great traditional little gem of a place. Staff hugely friendly too.

Amazing pie and charming atmosphere, we visited as part of @eatingeurope food tour. I’d make special trip to go there. Not to be missed.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
