“A delightful epicurean gem not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This little bakery/coffee/sandwich shop is a breath of fresh air that I happened upon by chance.

In contrast to the busy streets of A'dam, the atmosphere was warm, cozy, and relaxing with a beautiful and friendly staff. Do take your time ordering as there are sweets and quiches in the storefront window, sandwiches on the chalkboard menu, and croissants and scones in abundance to choose from.

You may also choose from a sampling of jams laid out on the counter (although the scones were good on their own). The plain scone was really good with various jams and lemon curd (I ate here almost everyday, so I sampled quite a few). Said jams are homemade, and I bought a jar because of the pineapple-basil.. it was like nothing I've ever tasted before! They had other interesting flavors as well... tomato-rosemary, strawberry, etc..

I also tried many of the sandwiches, one of which was the goat's cheese. It was slightly melted and paired with an olive-apple tapenade. The sandwiches were as unique and delightful to the palate as the baked goods and jams, all of which are fresh and homemade on premise (including the jams).

“Great spot fo breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

To a lovely french soundtrack and the smell of warming breads abd quiches this shop oozes style. Little tables crammed on the walls and stacks of cakes in the window. The coffee is good, the canal view nice. Well worth a visit

“Great pastry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

This place is hard to find, as name was not obvious from outside, just recognized from the shop window because of tripadvisor user photos, passed by at first. Pastries were very good, got the Rasberry crumb cake slice, and the almond pastry called French toast. Cute little seating out back too, but full sun when we got there so sat inside. Ice coffee Ed a bit week, but refreshing. Go for the sweets, fun to watch them prepare other goodies for the oven while we sat.

“Cake is tasty, waiting long.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Little nice store in Amsterdam. Website is very compact. When we where there it was very busy and had to wait to long. The cake was tasty, however, what our eyes to the expensive side.

“delicious cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We've tried only two cakes - chocolate and apple tart. Both delicious. It is very rare to eat a whole piece of chocolate cake and still crave for more. Definitely a place we will come back to.
