Amsterdam nowadays has a lot of tourist trap cheese shops. if you want to buy your cheese there go right ahead, but do not complain that it's expensive and ordinary. Go to a real shop in the centre of amsterdam where we buy our cheeses because they taste good. " De Kaaskamer" (cheese chamber) is such a shop a lot... More

Great cheese shop in the Runstraat, in the middle of the ’9 Straatjes’ (the nine streets) stacked from floor to ceiling with cheese wheels. They also sell wines, salads, ham, roasted nuts and takeaway sandwiches (special mention for the truffle cheese baguette). They also shrink-wrap cut cheeses to take back home.

You will find this is very different from other touristic cheese shops. It firstly drew my attention when I saw a gentleman was enjoying a cheese sandwiches in front of the shop, and when I went in, I found the place is like a cheese library and there are so many different flavours want to try.

Their cheeses are so local and small-batch that some of them even have the names of the dairy farmers on the label. The staff spoke English fluently, had a very developed knowledge of and obvious passion for cheese, and gave us great recommendations. I'm seriously considering paying the 35$ to import 8 ounces of their buffalo gouda, it was that... More

If you are serious about cheese. this is the place. Helpful staff. Plenty of choices. Everything you need for a picnic. Much of the cheese is vacuum-sealed, so you can ship it back home.
