“Gorgeous alfajores”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Dropped by Melly's to sample the alfajores. They were absolutely out of this world. They came in about 5 flavours and I had the chocolate and the white chocolate/walnut. Both delicious. We also bought some cookies at the same time. I tried the chocolate and speculaas cookie which was ok, but nothing spectacular, especially for the price. The alfajores though were definitely to be recommended.

The cafe itself is tiny, but a lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff.

“Secret place ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Well deserved rating. Visited here on aug 3 2014. Great coffee. Great baking. Cubanitos are a must try. Wafer rolls with dulce de leche stuffed inside then dipped in chocholate. Small and cozy. No outdoor seating.

Writing this review from this very cosy, small bar. Cappuccino and coffee are super and very well done, cakes and croissants are great. What are u waiting for...!?

“Best coffee around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Living in the central part of Amsterdam I have a broad choice in coffee corners within a five minute walk. Melly's easily beats all of the competitors by just creating great coffee.

My girlfriend and I visit at least once a week for a take away latte with soy and our happy 100% of the time.

Only questions mark is why they don't open earlier so I can visit before work every day!

We stopped at Melly's Cookie Bar each morning for breakfast and the pastries were different and equally amazing every day!
