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!

The Dutch Apple Oie they serve here is very famous for a reason it is delicious. Lovely, historical little place with lively atmosphere, but it'/s all about the Pie here.

Stopped off here for a beer and apple pie. Other half had Gluhwein which she enjoyed. Apple pie was good. We seemed to be the only English people in the pub but were made to feel welcome. Very cosy, well worth a visit.

We stumbled in to this place drawn by the warmth through the window but immediately fell in love with the inside ambiance. It’s so quaint! The building was built in the 1600s. Owned by the family for 51 years. Words cannot do it justice. Go...More

We were with a food lovers tour and it was our 1st stop. The cafe was warm and very friendly and the pie was second to none. I wish I could get the recipe and attempt it at home.

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.
