Best birthdaypie

Working at the Vijzelstraat our company had the 'rule' that birthday pies had to be bought at Holtkamp. Those pies (lemon merengue and mostly the one with red fruit on top!!) are amazing. Also try the typically Dutch kroketten.

I booked a concert the day of landing from US in Amsterdam at http://www.concertgebouw.nl/ Out of the taxi, quick stop at hotel, and by the time I reached the theatre- I was famished. A brilliant cappuccino- but the brownie, created by the chefs of Patisserie Hotlkamp was the texture of a brioche, absolutely exquisite. One of those heightened moments when... More

What an incredible find! We were exploring the neighborhood around our hotel with no specific plan in place and noticed this little bakery with a line of people outside the door. Of course we wondered what all the fuss was about it boy were we blown away! The absolute BEST cookies and treats we have ever had and we've enjoyed... More

Was referred to this place by a local. Since it is close to my apartment I stopped by and was very impressed. I hear the royal family buys their Christmas Cake here. Now it is a weekly stop for me.

Wonderful traditional patisserie. The place is tiny and take away only and clearly very popular, people kept coming in. We had apple tart and chocolate mousse cake, both were excellent. Also bought their cheese and veal croquettes for dinner, and liked them, even if it is not my favourite dish. The service was excellent and my son even got a... More

YOU MUST GO HERE!!!!!!! This is an absolutely delightful little patisserie! A fantastic range of cakes and chocolates. It was perfect, right down to the bell sounding as you go in. Very old school! We had a chocolate cake and an apple tart. Both were sublime. Very highly reccommended.

We chanced upon this place as we were staying close by in the Mercure. What a find. Fabulous cakes and pastries. Our favourite were the Almond curls which were a touch expensive but were the best we've ever eaten. Bought more to take home. Very good service though occasionally there maybe a bit of a wait. But well worth it.... More

Took a little while to find but wow we weren't disappointed when we did. Very reasonable prices for such lovely and delicate cakes. It was difficult to choose what cake I wanted but thankfully the lady serving was helpful in helping me choose by explaining what each was. I chose the cake with marzipan with a biscuit base and fresh... More
