Went here several times instead of having dessert in a restaurant. The basil and lemon sorbet was amazing! We also had the blood orange and Campari which was delicious. €5.40 for two sorbets. The hot chocolate was extremely rich and truly bitter chocolate. Great spot for dessert.

This place is very plastic, very unauthentic and random. Cheesecake was ok, mud cake too? But thx whole atmosphere and especially slow service ( probably due to insufficient manning?) was a total turn off.

Visited here after such great reviews but what we had was disappointing. Red velvet cake looked amazing but tasted kind of dry and not very sweet. Brownie ice cream had nuts in which I hate and that wasn’t advertised so could be dangerous if you have allergy’s. Also didn’t taste like brownie just chocolate. Partner had tiramisu and latte and both of these were tasty.

I love this little shop of heaven in the heart of Amsterdam city. I often travel from my place of work at Bijlmer Arena just to come and get some treats. Highly recommend the raspberry meringue and the hazelnut meringue is a good choice too! A good tip is to note that if you're looking to pay by card, it has to be a minimum 10 EUR spend.

Oh the poffertjes are soooo good. We had them in caramel sauce and it was devine. Freshly made infront of us and on a rainy day it was a welcome treat. At €3.20 and €o.65 for the caramel it was cheap enough.

I also had an espresso to go with it which was nice a warm.

They have gelato and other patisserie items that also look scrumptious including some bagged things like stroopwaffels that you can buy and take with you for a roadie snack
