Delicious Cupcakes!

After wandering around looking for a good dessert place to eat in we decided to give a try to this to go cupcakes and it was not a disappointment! The dulce de leche one was just delicious as well as the other ones.

Quite simply THE BEST cupcakes in Amsterdam. The flavours are lovely and the quality is always high. Originally only available Friday/Saturday/Sunday, thankfully they now open all week and the cakes can be enjoyed more often...

We went to get some cupcakes during our honeymoon due to the positive rating here and we were not disappointed, they were very good, as expected. One thing to note is that they only take cards, no cash.

Seriously, if you skip this place, you need to see a doctor... because there is definitely something wrong with you. Vanessa is a master of flavor and texture, this is the softest frosting I have even tasted. It is like eating a hug. I have tried so many flavors, I will not even start. Just go check the menu on...

Stumbled upon this lovely cupcake shop. Ordered the pumpkin cupcake, for the taste of the season, very tasty. Recommend a stop while in Amsterdam. Note-they only take credit cards.

These are some of the best cupcakes you will try in Amsterdam. The monthly flavours are always exiting and never leave me regretful. Amazing customer service and I would recommend everyone to go there at least once. Definitely try the red velvet, vanilla, and a few flavours of the month, you wouldn't be left disappointed.

I'm not a cupcake fan in general. In the U.S. folks price them as if they were good at $5 or so. Here, the same size cupcake are about 2 Euros. They were light, not super sweet and they melt in your mouth. They don't take cash though and they close around 6pm.

I couldn't ask for a more amazing service. I placed an order from London and even though the website asked for three days notice I called direct and amazingly they managed to deliver the yummy cakes next day. Really helpful email correspondence and such lovely staff. The cakes were for a little girl who was poorly and by all accounts... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
