I have been visiting the café over 20 years, and find the quality of baked goods to be outstanding. From ground almond-filled pastry (Gevuldekoeken) to those with black currant (Zwarte Bessen), Fig (Vijgenkoeken), and Poppy Seed (MannZaadKoeken) with orange and honey as well as Bosbeskoek (Bilberry/Blueberry), all with an incredible( helemaal lekker gebakjekorst) pastry crust, I can't recommend this bakery...

To be fair, we went nowhere else for Stroopwaffles. We went here based on Tripadvisor, employees were nice enough, room temperature Stroopwaffles were ok. I would definitely split one before buying six. Hit them up if it's both convenient and you want a Stroopwaffle.

I went to Lanskroon to find the "best" stroopwafel in Amsterdam. I purchased 3 boxes of 6 each (two different kinds) to take back home with me to San Francisco. A friend's daughter told me about stroopwafel and asked if I could bring some back. She said I could just get it at the airport but I wanted to find... More

This small coffee shop is full of character. There was even a cat sat on a chair looking very at home. It didn't move when people came in it just continued to relax. We thought this was a sign of a happy place and called in and had a couple of beverages. We wished we were hungry as we looked... More

This is a relatively small café so seats can be at premium. Well worth stopping by for a visit. The stroopwafels, hot chocolate and everything else we tried were delicious.

Stopped here on our way out of the city as we were suggested to eat here by a local. Tried the stroop waffle with honey in between. So good. Warm it over a cappuccino or shot of espresso and you have got a great way to start the day.

The guide of the food tour introduced this humble bakery, and the coffee-flavored wafers delight. Highly recommended with espresso! Inexpensive too, and easily accessible when at Spui square.

We heard they had the best stroopwafel so we had to try it! Very, very yummy indeed. The atmosphere was great and there were cats inside sleeping on the chairs, very cute! After we ate our delicious stroopwafels we decided to try their ice cream. I'm glad we did because it was amazing as well!

I have eaten packaged stroopwafels many times in the USA, so the goal of my Amsterdam trip was to find fresh stroopwafels. The first place on my list was Lanskroon. This is a small bakery, yet I was surprised how empty it was both times I passed by given all the promo for this place online. I did try a... More

A very small bakery / coffee shop with limited seating. We stopped because we saw a sign in the window that read "The Best Desserts in the World" (and Where to Get Them)". We had no idea what a Stroopwafels was but being suckers for advertisements we had to try one. Is it a cookie, if it a waffle? I... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
