This is my favorite cheese shop in Amsterdam! Every variety imaginable, with something for everyone. Friendly, helpful staff offers generous samples to help the shopper make the best choices for gifts and personal consumption. I enjoy visiting this shop each time I visit the city.

This is still one of the best cheese shops in Amsterdam. The location is in the busiest tourist area, near the Dam square. Good service and friendly people in the shop. They also sell wine, sausage, drink, sweet, cookie etc.

saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,

of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
