“Excellent chocolate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very pricey, but worth it. There is both a tea room and take out service, with lots of different fruit tarts,chocolate cakes and individual pieces of chocolate. No better place to buy a hostess gift!

“Best madeleines ever ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We saw this pretty pastry cafe while having a drink and snacks at the cafe opposite (also good), and the displays looked so delightful we were determined to try it out! We weren't disappointed. The pastries are a little on the pricey side, but the quality is worth it. We had the strawberry tart which had the sweetest, freshest strawberries on top and good pastry. And the madeleines were the best I've ever had - great texture and taste. Next time I'm buying a batch!

“Best hot chocolate in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Given that Amsterdam is never really warm, Pompadour's hot chocolate is a life savor for the dreary Amsterdam weather. Also recommend ginger tosti.

“Fantastic pastries in a lovely area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

The Pompadour is in the heart of the Negen Straatjes (9 Little Streets), a very nice area of boutique shops. It has a lovely selection of delicious cakes and excellent chocolates. My wife and I stopped for coffee and cake, the food was great and the service timely and friendly. Definitely a recommended stop!

“A chocolate lovers dream come true”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The pastries and such in this store defy review. They are works of art! And they taste amazing!!! We had a pastry with raspberry mouse that was absoulutely incredible. The mouse was so light and creamy it was like eating a cloud of raspberry. One of the locals was sitting across from us and overheard our conversation. She smiled and sid "this is one of the best in all of Amsterdam". I have to agree!
