Such a great little shop. Instead of selling handcrafted chocolate, it’s more of a (very carefully curated) selection of chocolate and chocolate bars from around the world. The staff member we saw was lovely, and treated us to a “chocolate experience”. We were invited to...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Breakfast or hot chocolate at 8am in Amsterdam? (15 Replies)
Any suggestions of cafes, bakeries or patisseries that are open at 8am? Having good hot chocolate is a plus! We will be needing to have breakfast at 8am each day and my favorite spot, Chocolatl, does not open until 11.
