I visit almost daily for fresh pastries, cookies, and cakes. Especially love their meringues and gevulde koeken. Staff always so friendly and accommodating.

We used to live around the corner and boy, that was not good for our weight. They make, hands down, the best cakes in the city. And if your in for something savoury, their shrimp, veal or cheese croquettes are home made and delicious.

On the recommendation of our tour guide we stopped off here. Apparently posh locals get their cakes and whatnot here. We had some apple pie and fancy croquettes and they were in fact delicious - or lekker as the Dutch say.

This renowned patisserie offers great delights. They are know for their cakes and chocolate. Expect high prices though, but in my opinion it is worth it. They also sell nice chocolate presents (bars etc.).

Go and try these cakes, expensive between 2-3 euros for one, small size but amazing, Think even Mary Berry couldn't make these delicious bakes. It's only a small shop and doesn't have sitting area

Sadly no, there are no prices or price lists in the actual shop either, you have to ask for each individual item.
