OMG, the yummy chocolate smell wafting out of this cookie shop pulled me in. And the warm chocolate cookies with a melted white chocolate center were divine, and tasted even better than they smelled. If you are in the Jordaan or 9 Streets area, definitely save room for one of these delicious warm delights!

I had read about this bakery on a few different blogs, and wanted to try one of their cookies for myself. I'm not even a huge chocolate fan, but purchased two cookies on the final day of our trip. They were both rather delicious - the one I ate right away, and the one I saved for our flight home.... More

We came after we had this place recommended to us, they serve only one make of cookie and its divine!! These cookies have an amazing gooey centre and are best eaten when just bought. But we also brought some back to the UK as gifts (6 for €10 and served in a free plastic case) they stayed fresh and still... More

Genuinely the best cookies ive ever had! Worth making your way here. The shop is cute, great staff, cookies were yum and it is located in a very pretty area. Whilst munching on our cookies, we found a hidden courtyard near by so keep an eye out for that too.

Definitely stop by Van Stapele if you are in Amsterdam : their dark chocolate cookies with a warm white chocolate inside are delicious! You will also get to see the cookies being prepared in front of you. They also have a wide selection of Kusmi teas.

The best cookie you will ever eat in your life, prepared by a small team that is absolutely single-minded and driven by the constant pursuit of perfection. This is truly beautiful work...thank you!

We just happened to come across this tiny bakery and went in for a single cookie and glass of cold milk. It was the perfect snack and the cookies were just the right texture and level of sweetness. Made with high quality chocolate. Only room for a couple of people to sit down but nice to see the cookies being... More

This came recommended from a blog and the cookies were AMAZING. It's a chocolate cookies with white chocolate on the inside and they are so gooey and warm. We talked with the cashier and she told us of how the owner had worked for 3 years trying to make the perfect cookie. And you could taste the time and effort... More

This bakery is pretty unique, in that they only sell one cookie. That one cookie though is worth it. The owner spent a while perfecting her recipe before going into business. The cookie is best eaten warm, which is easy as the oven is always on. The cookies are made by making the dough and rolling it around a piece... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
