The Dutch Apple Oie they serve here is very famous for a reason it is delicious. Lovely, historical little place with lively atmosphere, but it'/s all about the Pie here.

Stopped off here for a beer and apple pie. Other half had Gluhwein which she enjoyed. Apple pie was good. We seemed to be the only English people in the pub but were made to feel welcome. Very cosy, well worth a visit.

We stumbled in to this place drawn by the warmth through the window but immediately fell in love with the inside ambiance. It’s so quaint! The building was built in the 1600s. Owned by the family for 51 years. Words cannot do it justice. Go...More

We were with a food lovers tour and it was our 1st stop. The cafe was warm and very friendly and the pie was second to none. I wish I could get the recipe and attempt it at home.

Heard this place is famous for apple pie, which was really different from what I did before. Full of Apple, but not very sweet. It was perfect with the cream. There is a cable on the table, I was feeling in 18 century. It's good...More

We visited Papeneiland at the end of October on a Tuesday afternoon while exploring this area. We wish we hadn't bothered. The bar was quiet. We were served by a miserable tall bald man behind the bar who clearly needed a refresher course on customer...More

Jordaan
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

working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
