Description: Winkel 43 is located on the Noordermarkt. It's in the heart of the Jewish quarter the ‘Jordaan’, which is known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Because of its privileged location you'll be able to enjoy your coffee or lunch on our terrace on sunny days all year round. Winkel opens early in the morning till late at night. In the area our homemade apple pie became a general well known delicacy. Therefore tasting a slice is considered a must.

This place is purportedly THE place to get apple pie and indeed it is delicious. A generous slice with a coffee makes for a complete meal/large snack. You can get it with whipped cream which I recommend. Service is the same as any cafe or restaurant in Amsterdam. Outdoor seating which could be nice if it is warm and not... More

We found this cafe by pure luck; it's on the edge of the Jordaan neighbourhood (which in and of itself is worth a stroll). Nice atmosphere, wooden tables, decent cup of tea, and amazing apple cake/pie with real whip cream - just delish!

This is the apple pie that all others are compared to. The flavour was superb, not super sweet like white trash versions. The apples were fresh and sweet and the crust was flaky and cooked just perfect. I would go back here for the pie every day if I could.

If you stumble across this little cafe you must have the apple cake. The queue is round the block for a reason...it's scrummy!

AppLe pie to die for. The recipe has no sugar in the apple mix and only in the pastry. These are rough looking but delicious. Seating is limited inside. And it's busy on a Saturday when the farmers market, right outside TW cafe, is on during the morning.

Went here to sample the apple pie on our last day, should have gone back to Cafe t'Smalle, whose apple pie and setting was far, far superior!

Very simple honest cafe with good Dutch style coffee, good croissants with one or two other options on the menu.... but the reason you go is for an out of this world Apple pie. Loads of tart apples, spice and raisins in a perfect crisp case and topping, served with cream. It is always full and full of locals -... More

I was determined to visit this little cafe during my stay in Amsterdam, which I happened to come by through tripadvisor and after reading all the positive reviews I made it a priority. The main attraction at the cafe was their famous 'apple pie', now I understand why it is so popular, I was in food heaven! If you are... More
