“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We found the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try De laatste Kruimel. Despite some early morning rain and lack of street signs, we found this tiny gem of a place. There are only a handful of tables with crates topped with cushions to sit on which adds to the ambience. Due to the rain we did not sit out back on the tiny balcony.

I had the French Toast which had a crumbly topping and just the right amount of spice. Everything was so good, we purchased additional items to go on the way out.

This place is now on my list whenever I am back in Amsterdam.

“Fantastic little balcony at the back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I had breakfast here one morning and was delighted not only with the quality of food, but also the very friendly service! Above all, it had a lovely little balcony out back overlooking the canal! It was such a delight to start the day in such lovely surroundings....go and definately have a seat outside overlooking the canal!

“This is the place where pies go when they die.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Want an A-class sandwich for lunch? Check! But watch out, average Dutchman! This ain't the classic broodje-kaas kind of crap! This is serious gourmet stuff! And by gourmet stuff I mean Gordon Ramsay-weeping-in-despair-like-a-baby kind of stuff. Think of all possible premium ingredients. Spanish cheese, Italian spicy salami, truffle mayo, freshly baked bread, stardust, you name it! You'll puke rainbows for weeks to come!

You feel cranky and need a mid-afternoon bite? Double-check! Their 3-inch thick French quiches redefine the concept of food pornography. There are more tourists taking pictures to De Laatste Kruimel window than in Dam Square. Go for the polenta one and you'll even skip dinner!

Need a caffeine fix? Frikkin' check that too! Italian-style damn good espressos and cappuccinos! Are you Italian? You'll feel like you've never left your country. And if you're up for breakfast, bring it on with real god-tier pastry!

Friendly staff? Supa-dupa check! The gorgeous blond taleggio fairies working there will take you on a wild unicorn ride through a magic world of scones and muffins. You'll never be the same!

And if you though your grandma's pies were the best in the world, it's time to reassess your standards. This is the place where pies go when they die.

“Very tasteful pastries and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Found De Laatste Kruimel by searching & reading reviews on Trip Advisor and have to say it was a very good find!
The attention to detail, the freshness of all their pastries, the cost and above all the friendliness of the complete staff are all reasons for one to go there and enjoy.
A must stop when in the city where you can find anything & everything you want.

Will stop again on my next trip visiting my daughter who's studying in the Netherlands!
