I felt strange when I entered the Pattisserie at Vijzelgracht 16 in the Amsterdam centrum. Heaps of cakes, a really wide variety of cookies offered, but my asking for Croquetten! A German weekly news had drawn my attention to the fact that they are preparing and selling in the Netherlands croquettes with the pastry-cook provided that they don't represent only... More

Have visited this cake shop twice now and been very impressed with both the service and the product. The chocolate cake is one of the best things I've ever tasted and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone with a sweet tooth :-)

Beautiful and delicious cakes and sweets. I had the pleasure of meeting one of the bakers named Nick. A passionate pastry chef. A "must" stop when in Amsterdam.

Here are gone through high listing on tripadvisor. Price and quality are good. Disadvantage that we long had to wait for our turn. The service was not very good.

Something to celebrate and not afraid of excess weight: go to Holtkamp! It is the number one place for cakes, patisserie and all kinds of wonderful baked sweets. Already for decades known to Amsterdammers and even people outside the city. If you take the train to Gooi on Saturday you will see people with Holtkamp bags returning there. Oh, do... More

The patissierie is a take away only- a real shame there isn't space to put in a couple of seats and be able to have a coffee!

A very nice cake shop. The pastries and biscuits are delicious. They get very busy so be prepared for a wait. A good visit when in Amsterdam.

The best pastry baker of Amsterdam...but also trie their Holtkamp kroketten (a snack with a ragout filling with a crispy outside) ..then take some pastry.It's difficult to choose because everthing looks and tastes delicious. Always busy but on special occasions like the day before new year people line up outside
