Top ways to experience Amsterdam Cheese Company and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

I stumbled upon this cheese store during my time in Amsterdam. As a cheese lover it's an absolute must. The staff is very friendly and engages in conversation right when you walk in. The girl working there explained everything and more about the cheese and best of all, I could try all of them! To avoid travelling back with a heavy suitcase they helped me order my cheese online to be delivered at my house. Just as easy, because as an expat going back home the suitcase is already full enough. I can't wait to enjoy my cheese at home!

I was attracted by the aroma from outside. I popped in and my eyes almost popped out. I bought the over 24 months old cheese, vacuum sealed, and they tell you how to store it. They even give you paper to wrap it in once opened. Highly recommend ChrisPi

Went today in the Kalverstraat shop, where a talented italian girl (i missed the name, and i'm sorry for this reason) gently told me all that i would know about dutch cheese. But nothing is better than try some slice, and here you can do it. This is definitely THE place for dutch cheese. Nothing more to day. Just try it!

Ive contacted them a few times, and recived an answer that if the oreder will not arrive by the end of the week the order will be canceled. its been 3 weeks since then, they are still ignoring my emails. A "great" service i will not come back again to recive.

We walked into the store not expecting much because there are so many cheese shops, however we were greated by a lovely guy call Heddy. He was very knowledgeable and explained all the different cheeses and jams. He really knew his stuff and is a credit to the company. The cheese is pretty good too!

We liked it, purchased cheese in a number of places and it was all good. I'm sure in the heart of the city it is all for tourists, but there is no doubting the quality. Plenty of samples available and purchasing done.

lovely employees but worse infrastructure : mouse running on the floor. Better cheese is to find somewhere else in Amsterdam.

Dear Yasmin, thanks for your visit. We are constantly working to eliminate the presence of rodents in our shops. Unfortunately sometimes one slips through. With regard to our cheese selection, all our cheese is from the North-Holland region which we consider the best place in The Netherlands to make cheese. Kind regards

I went there to buy some Gouda before leaving and while in the shop I noticed a mouse running around the shop, no need to say that I left immediately and went to another shop.
It is not normal that a food shop (or any shop) has mice, especially since we buy the cheese to eat it. Knowing that it has been in contact with mice is not appealing at all.
I do not recommend this shop to anyone.

I made the mistake to go to Amsterdam Cheese Company in my last trip and I would strongly recommend finding an alternative to them.

Here's my beef with them:

- Right off the bat, the store manager was simply one of the rudest persons I've spoken to in a shop. Not only was he not able to answer questions he basically rushed the purchase so that he could go to the next customer. Perhaps he was under pressure, perhaps he's simply a unpleasant person.

- The prices are exorbitant for the quality of the product, I'd rather recommend going to Bijenkorf or Maison de Bonneterie for gourmet level cheeses with real quality worth the pricing.

Anyway I think a company trying to be a gourmet vendor of a cultural product can afford to be a bit more quality oriented and encourage manager level staff to know what they are talking about.

Dear Karan, thanks for coming to our shop. We are sorry to hear about your experience. We are constantly working to improve our customer service and staff training and we will take your comments to our next meeting. With regard to our cheese, we have carefully chosen our cheesemakers and consider our selection of Dutch cheese the best Holland has to offer. Hopefully we can make it up to you next time you are in Amsterdam. Best regards
