“My favorite ice-cream in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Being a tour guide, I often get American groups asking me where to get some good ice cream. This is the best address I know in Amsterdam. Took my kid there today, and he loved it too - lots of little tasters, great ice cream and other sweet stuff - and they even have cannoli. Good thing they don't have a branch in my home town :)

“Delicious, great service, everyting looks great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

On the edge of the Red light District, there were a lot of people there. We first bought some chocolates for our family, then tried their AMAZING hot chocolate, and had a waffle. We kept trying to leave, but couldn't! Everything was so beautiful there.

“Marvellous Metropolitan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Came here to have waffles and ice cream...without a doubt the best waffle and ice cream I've had. Good selection of ice cream to choose from, helpful staff who let you taste different flavours if youre struggling to decide. Definately worth a visit!
