We had such a fun evening in this pub. The draft beer was delicious but the apple pie was immense!! Great traditional little gem of a place. Staff hugely friendly too.

Started here as part of a walking food tour. Had the apple pie which was unlike any pie I'd had before - utterly delicious! Had it with a beer, which normally wouldn't go, but the pie was almost like a meal. The location of this...More

Amazing pie and charming atmosphere, we visited as part of @eatingeurope food tour. I’d make special trip to go there. Not to be missed.

This place is a time capsule. Everything in here was there already 20 years ago and will probably (hopefully) stay like that for the next decades. You will only get drinks here: Like it used to be! Don't ever ask for water, that is something...More

The TripAdvisor community advised going here for apple pie. An excellent recommendation! some comment that the pie isn't very sweet, but it was perfect for us!

Beautiful place with gracious host. She suggested a nice local beer for us. We weren’t planning on pie, but when we saw a fresh one come up we had to have a piece. Amazing. Perfect place for a rest from a busy city. Thanks.

It's all about the pie at this brown cafe which is much different than an American apple pie. The pie at Papeneiland is made with two kinds of apples that are delivered to the cafe each morning to be cored and sliced on the premises....More

We went for dessert because we heard this place was renowned for its Dutch Apple Pie. Am I ever glad we did. You expect a sweet treat, but this one is savory and delicious with a melt-in-your-mouth crust. You must try it!

Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
