Yummy

Great little place if you've got a sweet tooth and prices are good, too. Friendly service and lots of choice. The macaroons are delicious!

The ice-cream in this place is absolutely amazing. Packed full of true flavour and creaminess! And the portions are great too! Definitely a must visit while in Amsterdam!

We found this lovely place by accident and it took time choose because of the wide range of irresistible looking desserts and their taste was even better ;)

The food here is really good, first and foremost. I tried a pretty large apple pie slice for 3.75 euros and an orange muffin for 3.50, but, though they were really good, they were quite pricey; I would say about a euro off of each would have been more reasonable. The girl behind the counter also seemed a bit rushed.... More

I got a belgian waffle with melted chocolate and homemade nutella. It was a nice little place, where most of the stuff was homemade. The atmosphere was good and it wasn't even crowded, even though we were there on a rainy day.

We found this little gem on our second day in the city and went back every day (sometimes twice in the one day) for the remainder of our trip. The waffles were amazing and so was the milk chocolate mud pie! The staff were ridiculously helpful and pleasant! Must visit!!

Everytime I'm in Amsterdam I must visit this place to have a caramel waffel and their amazing lemon-basil sorbet. It's a lovely place filled with wide range of beautifull and colourfull goodies. I start drooling as soon as I enter. If you want something sweet & delicious that's the right place to go.

Best waffles and Ice cream I've ever had! Think I would have the waffles just with icing sugar next time because it was so delicious just as is.. But had Hazlenut ice cream and that was out of this world too! And the guy was really friendly :)

Hi there, thank you for your review! Just with sugar they are pretty good as well. But you should definitely try our home made Nocciole on top next time. Hope to see you again! More

I went to amsterdam with my family, and we casually found ourselves in front of Metropolitan. The best you can find in amsterdam, tasty food, not expansive and a good staff, that talk a lot of different languages. Nice one, metropolitan rulez!

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
