Description: Winkel 43 is located on the Noordermarkt. It's in the heart of the Jewish quarter the ‘Jordaan’, which is known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Because of its privileged location you'll be able to enjoy your coffee or lunch on our terrace on sunny days all year round. Winkel opens early in the morning till late at night. In the area our homemade apple pie became a general well known delicacy. Therefore tasting a slice is considered a must.

“Remarkable Pie”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We received a recommendation to go for the apple pie which prompted our first visit. Since it was raining the seating inside was full and it is a small space but we managed to find a table. The pie was amazing and the coffee added to our enjoyment. We returned a few days later and had a late afternoon snack. The sun was out so the outside tables were packed but we very much enjoyed the food, service, and vibe. Worth the time to visit.

“Apple pie for breakfast? Yes!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

A local family member suggested the Winkel after a morning tour of the Anne Frank Museum (just down the street.) The cafe was crowded. The line to order was long (don't fret, it moves quickly.) The experience was perfect!

Coffee, latte or fresh juice and a slice of pie is the order of the morning. The crew behind the counter does an amazing job serving a massive amount of pie and fresh coffee in a tiny space. They are a well oiled machine!

That should not reduce your expectations. The pie was delicious, the coffee strong and the breakfast wonderful. But then again, why not? You're having pie for breakfast in the middle of Amsterdam!

“Confusing service, greattt pie!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

After walking around town, we bumped into this place. It had outdoor seating but seemed like everyone was looking for a table. As we stepped in, there was a queue but I had also seen waiters running around, so wasn't sure if we were to wait to be seated or just hunt down a spot. Decided to stay on the queue, placed our order and then just took our tray and sat at the bar.
I ordered the apple pie with no cream, when asked. The girl insisted I should have some and put it in a bowl on the side. I am not a fan of whipped cream so I ignored it, until...my husband dipped a bit in the cream and was wowed! If fact, she was right! It was not a soft super sweet cream like the one we buy in cans. It was homemade and just to die for. Would most definitely go back again!

“Great Local Place”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Wonderful little place in the Jordaan neighborhood. No menus at the table, only the chalkboard. Great variety of dishes that are fresh and local. The pork I had was great and the fish dish I tasted was incredible. And yes, the apple pie is as good as advertised. A must go when in Amsterdam.

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Might come back to Amsterdam just for it. We were walking by and saw all the people and had to see what the fuss was about, boy I'm glad we did. Make sure you order extra cream
