The pretty cupcakes are very fresh and delicious, and you could feel the high quality ingredients from the first bite. The cake dough itself is just perfect- moist and rich in flavor!
The price is more than fare- 2.75 euros a piece, which is pretty much the price of the ordinary dry cupcakes you get anywhere else.

Heard about this place by word of mouth. Van ness cupcakes sell them @ €2.75 each - there are discounted unit prices when purchased in half-dozens or dozens. These store has monthly special flavours which you can check out on their facebook page.

I've tried 4 different cupcakes (Cookies and Creme, Strawberry, Chocolate Baileys, Chocolate Hazelnut) on different days and they were all fresh and delicious.

Note that they only open 3 days a week (Fri-Sun only!) and they only accept certain card payments. Even cash is NOT ACCEPTED! There is no seating area inside the store. Meanwhile, the street doesn't look very safe though so I would avoid being here alone at night.

Great cupcakes, especially the chocolate ones, the Red Velvet and the Lemon Lime. The lady there is very friendly. They are a bit pricey but as a sweet temptation once a week or once every two weeks it's worth it! :)

Forget about Magnolia or Crumbs! This tiny cupcake place creates super delish honest good flavored cupcakes. Taste so natural and sweetness is just right. Each flavor balance of icing and cake are just perfect! The only thing is that they open only Fri, Sat and Sunday. But maybe this limitation makes you feel wanting to try even more. The lady who runs this place, she is doing this from her pure joy and passion. I'm not related to this place at all, was just curious and asked. Anyway no doubt, this is my best cupcake destination on Amsterdam for sure!

I'm not saying these are the best in the world, but they ARE your genuine gourmet cupcakes, perfectly crafted in a variety of delicious flavours. In the UK, you can find similar quality at a Hummingbird Bakery. Yum!!! Open from 12pm to 6pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday only. If you've never tried gourmet cupcakes before, it's a must and if you HAVE tried them before, go on...you know you can't resist!
