The place to go for cheese in Amsterdam. They will let you generously taste any of their cheeses. The staff is outstanding and will explain what you have tasted and answer any of you questions.

You find all kind of Gouda Cheese or as they like to call it the Dutch Gold. There are Gouda Cow, Gouda Goat, and other blends. The shops are elegant and the staff is experienced.

Thanks Mahmoud, only the best quality for our customers. All cheeses are from cows grazing the pastures north of Amsterdam, probably the best place on earth to make cheese! Hope to see you again soon.

Just one of many shops with cheese to sell. However, this was the first one we saw and the young assistant was very knowledgeable and helpful. Ended up with a large smoked cheese sausage and a really tasty Basil infused soft cheese. Lovely.
