“Terrible treatment of tourists”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

the staff in the dobla store in alkmaar are not welcoming at all to tourists. we were treated like we owe it to them that there is space in the store for us instead of appreciating that we were buying from the store. i was in a group of three - the other two bought pastries and i was considering to buy chocolates to take home. when the waitress saw that there were only two pastries, i was told that i cannot sit with the group. i must buy a pastry or leave. that turned me off altogether from even buying chocolates. i will surely never ever come back.

“Yummilicious”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Spent last Friday 24/5 in Alkmaar and walked past their window several times and always had to stop to look at all the delicious desserts. At the end of the day I decided to buy the mango-passionfruit cake and it was delicious! Not too sweet, good mixture with the dark chocolate, nice chocolate decorations on top. It wasn't too filling, was nice and fruity an not too expensive: 2,25€! I'd come here again but next time I'll be eating my cake in their café :)

“Lovely!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Amidst our day of shopping, we stopped in for a sweet treat. We were treated to cappuccino's and found a lovely little room to sit in up stairs. Sat by the window and people watched....the perfect way to get out of the cold and rain. A great stop for visitors with wonderful items to purchase as gifts.

“Desserts are amazing”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

The desserts are amazing and worth buying more than one. The store and company are sell products to finish desserts that you make at home. Very cool place to visit and worth every Euro.
