Anyone who knows me knows that I never fail to try the sweets from the patisseries and cafes of each place I visit. In the case of Amsterdam, I tasted so many delicious desserts that it is even difficult to choose which one was my favorite.
One of the most typical sweets there is stroopwafel, so don’t leave the city without having tasted at least one of them. FI made a short list with some of the most interesting places in the city to share with you. They all have amazing sweets that will make your mouth water!
I can’t even describe how much I loved the apple pie at this place, it was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. They call it appeltaart and it is basically made with apple and cinnamon. The dough is super well made and the filling makes everything even more delicious.
In addition to the wonderful dessert, the place is cute, with several outdoor tables. It is the perfect type of tour to be done in the morning or in the late afternoon, you know? I’m sure you will love eating the appeltaart while looking at the houses and streets in the city.
You have to go to Lanskroon Banketbakkerij if you want to eat a good stroopwafel. The candy is like a biscuit filled with caramel, the dough is delicious and different from the sweets that we are used to eating. Ah, they sell versions with coffee and honey, adding a little to the traditional recipe. The local cakes and pies also deserve attention. They are super well made and tasty. The atmosphere of the cafe is not very big, so the place is very welcoming.
Melly’s Cookie Bar
Another small store, but with very delicious desserts. In addition to cookies, as the name of the place says, they also sell great cakes and pies. The atmosphere is calm and the decor is super charming, with several details in green and white very cute. The cakes are homemade and fresh, great options to eat in the late afternoon!
Sweet and salty
Zoet & Hartig is a super tasty coffee in Amsterdam, both because of the sweets and drinks to consume on the spot and also for the products sold for travel. There you will find packages of incredible coffees and teas, as well as options of chocolate in small bags. If you are in town, stop by this place. I promise you won’t regret it! Hot chocolate is perfect for rainy and cold days 😉
My Little Patisserie
Specializing in French confectionery, chef Audrey Kriel makes wonderful sweets. She is passionate about sweets with a difference in texture between creams and something crunchy, so most of the desserts in the store follow this line.
The decor of My Little Patisserie is minimalist and super clean, another reason that made me still love this place. One of the most requested desserts there is the thousand leaves, with the well-made clay and the super tasty cream.
Patisserie Holtkamp is one of the most traditional bakeries in the city, created in 1886. The confectionery part of the place is simply wonderful. They sell from more traditional desserts, such as appeltaart, and also a huge variety of chocolates and chocolates.
The classic style of the environment makes the experience even more enjoyable, because it is as if you are in an old movie store. As the bakery is very busy, there are always freshly made sweets, including the famous stroopwafel!
Petit Gateau’s tartlets are quite popular with city dwellers. They sell several flavors and, as they are small, you can order more than one if you are uncertain which version to choose. Those of chocolate and red fruits are always among the favorites of the people who frequent the store. Of course, the diversity of sweets doesn’t end in pies, right? Confectioner Meik Schaling also makes delicious bombs, macarons and madeleines!
Patisserie Tout sells cakes, chocolates, macarons and pies. The colors of the desserts are so beautiful that they even look like lies. Everything is very well finished and the flavors are also great. Regarding macarons, there is something for everyone. One of my favorites is salted caramel – which is one of my favorite flavors for various types of sweet. Ah, for those who want to taste their chocolate, I recommend the more traditional versions in bars 🙂
Impossible to resist all these places, right? I’m sure that in at least one of them you will end up going if you travel to Amsterdam! If you feel like visiting other corners of the city, be sure to watch our videos on the channel!
