Loads of delicious treats waiting inside.

A large selection of breads, cakes, pastries and sandwiches. The price is slightly expensive, but worth every penny. Courteous service.

Once in a while I get my favourite "Scone" from this bakkery. There are some addresses of this branch in amsterdam. This one is the easiest place for me to stop to or from my work. Tram 3, 5,12 and 24 stop nearby. There is also sandwich corner on the back.

My husband and I enjoyed delicious pastries from this bakery every morning of our stay in Amsterdam. My personal favorite was the chocolate almond croissant; when they say chocolate, they mean it! The glazed apple on puff pastry, warm from the oven, was my runner-up. The only reason I'm not giving this place an excellent rating is that my husband... More

Natural orange juice tasted like homemade. The ladies that work there were very quick while serving us and their... More

I was out doing some early morning photographs of the Rijksmuseum and decided to bring back fresh croissants, stopping by the bakery at 7am I found they didn't open until 7:30 so I went for a bit more of a walk before they opened. When I returned at 7:25 they were open and crowed with workmen getting their breakfasts and... More
