Came here 2 yrs ago and had the best crepes ever. Came back and still the same, perfect! The 2nd day we tried somewhere else. Nowhere near as good as Rene's. Only downside is that the girl serving us was not very friendly at all....More

Every time I visit Amsterdam I make sure I stop off here! Beautiful pastry shop open until late serving savoury and sweet home made delights. Nicest cakes I've ever had! You must visit!
