“Great delicate, delectable pastries-aloof staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This patisserie was so tempting we immediately went in. Presentation, variety, cleanliness was great, unfortunately the mature couple handling it was not helpful at all. We picked an array of madeleines, petit fours (yummmm) picked by hand, no tongs used. Apple cake and some chocolates, all top of the line ingredients, beautiful mix and texture; some unusual presentation. The reason I mentioned her picking it by hand with out gloves is that she used the same hand to give change. A marzipan square with a brownie type cake very sweet. `since it was also close to closing time. it seemed that they did not really want to serve us. Too bad, such a great patisserie would suffer due to poor customer reception.

“Best cakes in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

A thing above all the rest: apple tart... AMAZING. In any case, everything in the patisserie is delicious, we got a grand marnier mousse - mandarin mousse - white chocolate cake for my girlfriend's birthday and it was incredibly good. Also, very conveniently located in the central Utrechtsestraat. Highly recommended.
