“This is the place where pies go when they die.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Want an A-class sandwich for lunch? Check! But watch out, average Dutchman! This ain't the classic broodje-kaas kind of crap! This is serious gourmet stuff! And by gourmet stuff I mean Gordon Ramsay-weeping-in-despair-like-a-baby kind of stuff. Think of all possible premium ingredients. Spanish cheese, Italian spicy salami, truffle mayo, freshly baked bread, stardust, you name it! You'll puke rainbows for weeks to come!

You feel cranky and need a mid-afternoon bite? Double-check! Their 3-inch thick French quiches redefine the concept of food pornography. There are more tourists taking pictures to De Laatste Kruimel window than in Dam Square. Go for the polenta one and you'll even skip dinner!

Need a caffeine fix? Frikkin' check that too! Italian-style damn good espressos and cappuccinos! Are you Italian? You'll feel like you've never left your country. And if you're up for breakfast, bring it on with real god-tier pastry!

Friendly staff? Supa-dupa check! The gorgeous blond taleggio fairies working there will take you on a wild unicorn ride through a magic world of scones and muffins. You'll never be the same!

And if you though your grandma's pies were the best in the world, it's time to reassess your standards. This is the place where pies go when they die.

“Very tasteful pastries and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Found De Laatste Kruimel by searching & reading reviews on Trip Advisor and have to say it was a very good find!
The attention to detail, the freshness of all their pastries, the cost and above all the friendliness of the complete staff are all reasons for one to go there and enjoy.
A must stop when in the city where you can find anything & everything you want.

Will stop again on my next trip visiting my daughter who's studying in the Netherlands!

“Amazingggg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Love this place so much!! Its a very small cozy place to get coffee, eat, and get a fabulous sweet treat :) we went 2 times in one day! Stumbled upon this hidden gem by chance while we were lost and walking in the rain. Perfection made possible by an extremely hard working, friendly, and helpful staff

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Wow. This is a hidden gem. We splurged on one of the meat bread puddings; it was incredible. If you find yourself in Amsterdam, you must seek out this place. Amazing coffee and french toast too.

“Great find.....but let's keep it our secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

What a jewel this little gem of a restaurant is! Hidden just off the beaten path in Amsterdam this place specializes in desserts....OMG good and breakfast specialties. Just a tiny place oozing with charm and delightful offerings. We had the meat bread pudding, along with a polenta something or other for a breakfast that would last the day. Delish! The women that work in the shop are super nice, but the real star is the food. We HAD to go back a second time for apple pie, but let's just keep it our secret, if the word gets out they will have to expand to the size of a super market!
