“The "Mother" of All Stroopwafels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The honey stroopwafel at Lanskroon is in a class by itself. Bearing only the slightest resemblance to all of the store-bought stroopwafels i had eaten in the past, this confection is two freshly baked, thin cookies with a honey filling. Simple? Yes, but the execution was superb. On a cold, early winter's day, the stroopwafel with a hot cup of coffee was a real treat. One member of our party had a slice of a berry pie/tart and it was also excellent - especially with heavy cream/schlag sahne. The bakery is small, but the staff is friendly and efficient and turn-over of tables is rapid.

“Stroopwafel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

It was recommended that we try stroopwafel and came across this bakery when wandering along the canals. I had a huge mug of hot chocolate and a honey stroopwafel. Both were mighty delicious!

“Welcome respite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

What's better on a rainy, chilly day exploring Amsterdam than a warm, cozy bakery filled with friendly people, hot coffee, and tasty baked goods with a history? Yeah...I can't think of anything either. Luck guided me past Lanskroon on a four hour layover at Schiphol. The pastries are beautiful and equally tasty, the coffee is fresh, and the people-watching is delightful.

Thank you for sharing your hospitality with me!

“Chocolate cream cookies to die for! Plus, cats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

First of all, there was a cat in this bakery, just sitting on a chair being adorable. Only minutes after we arrived, a black cat came strolling up the street right into the bakery and onto another chair. Seemed very popular with the cats, and that was just fine by me since I'm an animal lover. MY boyfriend and I stopped in for a quick snack and ordered a chocolate cream cookie (I think that's what it was called) to share. It was SO GOOD, we had to order a second. It didn't look like much, but man it was heavenly. I would 100% recommend this place and I want to go back so bad. I would travel to Amsterdam purely for another cookie.
