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! Visited because of the location to the hotel I stayed at (Mercure Arthur Frommer) and the reviews here- the cakes are expensive but worth every Euro cent. I would probably run out of... More

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

very tiny patissier shop in Amsterdam. You have to queue outside on the pavement on busy days . It has been there forever and all Amsterdam knows about their delicious cakes, croquete, sweet and salt cookies. If you want large sized cakes ( 10 persons+) you d better order in advance. In the shop are mostly only small sized cakes(... More

I've been a customer at Holtkamp for many years and they manage to maintain the highest level of quality and service. They even introduce new additions to their wonderful range of pastries and chocolates from time to time. But I am glad they stick to the classic creations for which Holtkamp is famous. Their shop is tiny (no seats), so... More

This Patisserie has been there longer than I can remember. We lived around the corner, but moved away from it years and years ago. Despite the distance from our place to Holtkamp, my wife very often takes the time to shop there. Especially the Cakes are great and worthwhile the detour
