I visited here the last time when I was in Amsterdam and got fantastic licorice so we came back for more on this trip. The owner is very helpful and made some wonderful suggestions as the selection can be overwhelming. It’s a charming small candy...More

This was one of the places I most wanted to visit. After doing severe research and planning our daily itinerary around it, we arrived to a closed shop on Saturday at 12:30. Very disappointed at a missed opportunity.

Best drop in the city! Was not a big fan of the flavour as a child but now that I live here can't get enough. My first visit was the learning experience to see what I really like and now that we have two choices...More

We visited during the school run when it was busy. I was so impressed by how patient and attentive the owner was serving small children. She was equally kind and attentive with us and our lack of knowledge regarding Dutch liquorice. No wonder there are...More

The shop owner was incredibly unwelcoming and rude to us. We waited in line for a good 15 minutes while she was super kind to local children as they took a long time to pick out their sweets, which was fine with us. When it...More

The shop owner is welcoming, funny, and helps you find that perfect sweet treat. A must do in the Jordaan.

From double salt to sweet and everything in between, this sweet shop has everything a licorice lover has ever dreamed of. My husband and I were mesmerised by a whole wall of different licorice (drop in Dutch), so the lovely lady who owns the shop...More

From the moment we walked in and said we saw her shop on an American travel show, the owner had a bad attitude making silly comments. Some locals came in while we were there, speaking Dutch with the owner, and a member of our group...More

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.
