These cookies are unbelievably delicious! I recommend you go earlier in the day, because I have heard that they only make a certain amount per day and once they run out, they are no longer available. Totally worth the line up, if there is one....More

It is a greatplace who likes sweets. Long time in queue before the store's on the street. Simple chocolate cookies, too sweet cake. The store is very nice classic style.

I think I agree that these are the best cookies I've ever eaten! I LOVE chocolate and am quite a cookie connoisseur. These cookies are crunchy on the outside and gooey in the middle. Almost brownie like. Delicious.

It so surprising this kind of a simple food makes you smile just one bite. The cookie is both crunchy and soft. Contrast tastes get mixed in a harmony. One person can't get more than 7. You will probably wait in a line in the...More

Worth a quick visit when in Amsterdam. The cookies are delicious. There was no queue when we visited but even if there was I expect it would go in quickly. I bought some to take home and they were just as delicious 2 days later!

We were in a few places in Amsterdam that were highly recommended and quite overrated to our opinion. But these are not just good marketing, they are really good cookies and worth to wait for (we only waited for 5-7 min). Buy as much as...More

Those cookies worth the waiting line. They are absolutely delicious and baked using a traditional way. There is only one flavour (dark chocolate with a melting heart of white chocolate). The shop is looking gorgeous - you feel like you are in a Harry Potter...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I would definitely contact the store and ask them they can let you know as the cookies are made on site.
