We used to live around the corner and boy, that was not good for our weight. They make, hands down, the best cakes in the city. And if your in for something savoury, their shrimp, veal or cheese croquettes are home made and delicious.

On the recommendation of our tour guide we stopped off here. Apparently posh locals get their cakes and whatnot here. We had some apple pie and fancy croquettes and they were in fact delicious - or lekker as the Dutch say.

This renowned patisserie offers great delights. They are know for their cakes and chocolate. Expect high prices though, but in my opinion it is worth it. They also sell nice chocolate presents (bars etc.).

The chocolate cake and the rasberries cake are my favourite. But I don't think you can go wrong in this place. The croquettes are also delicious. They have different kinds. Meat, cheese, shrimps... Only take away. Location is good. Near to the canals in the city centre of Amsterdam.

Best cakes ever. Amazing apple cake- not too sweet. The best in Amsterdam. Try the ginger - twist cake was also amazing. That is also a Dutch speciality.

I went to Holtkamp to take some cakes and the lady was very helpful. The chocolate mousse cake was really nice, but the best was the cheesecake which is the same served at the Rijks museum

I went with my other half following a recommendation from a friend of his. It is a small patisserie. It is not a restaurant and has no seating so do not expect to go for a coffee and a cake. We bought some slices of cheesecake which was some of the best cheesecake I have ever tasted. Also bought a... More

Go and try these cakes, expensive between 2-3 euros for one, small size but amazing, Think even Mary Berry couldn't make these delicious bakes. It's only a small shop and doesn't have sitting area

A delicious, small bakery. If you love good pies and pattisiers you must visit it. You buy whatever else you want and go for the coffee next door.
