This is the best cookie in town [maybe anywhere]!! They only make one kind, so your only decision is how many to buy. And it happens to be directly across from one of the best shops for frittes in the city. Two great reasons to be in this location almost any time of day. We usually sample a cookie, buy... More

A friend of mine and I were walking through Amsterdam and we stumbled upon this bakery. A young lady opened it and she only makes this special type of cookie with chocholate and we came there again and again. Must taste/visit!

We were told that this is the best cookie place in Amsterdam- they're right! The cookie is heavenly! It was worth the long walk in trying to find the shop. It is a small shop that sells only one type of freshly baked cookie, it is prepared and baked right there. The smell, the taste is truly the best. The... More

Cookies are awesome! Can't get it anywhere else. Freshly baked everyday and staff are friendly. Love the white choc inside the cookies.

Very nice cookie - if in Amsterdam it's a must! Beautiful little shop where you can follow the handmaking of the product.

I rarely like chocolate cookies, but these are phenomenal! There is only one store, but it is worth seeking out. Wish there was a way to bring some back to the US .

We came to Van Stapele with the Hungry Birds food tour and we was not disappointed. Our guide told us the story about how this cookie was created. It's such a lovely story (ask the owner). The cookie shop will only ever have 1 shop and sell 1 type of cookie and the recipe is secret. The fact that this... More
