Looking round for somewhere not too busy for a bite to eat found this little place. Staff friendly if a little confused that we'd come into a chocolate shop but aren't eating chocolate. Lovely apple cake with real whipped cream. And the gin and tonic...More

Stumbled upon this place and stopped for a quick bite of something sweet. It was not overly busy or loud at that time. The waffle with melted chocolate was amazing and the brownie pie was to die for. I loved reading all the gelato flavors...More

Easy to get to, and plenty of choices. I had the apple crumble with whipped cream. (Picture) I'll be back for the waffles and croissants covered in white and dark chocolate.

We stopped for sweet treat, and a “treat” it was! Topped with one of the most fabulous ice cream added on top the molten chocolate and the result is WOW!

The waffles were outstanding, the place is cute, the only inconvenience is that they don't have a bathroom.

Enjoyed a caramel cookie small ice cream here. It was delicious. Cute napkins too. Interesting and quirky “props” like chocolate to snort for free - only in Amsterdam!

There’s so many sweet treats to chose from. I had the waffle, which was amazing, with melted dark chocolate on. Prices are reasonable for quality of food.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
