“The best cookie of Amsterdam. Go early (opens at 10) or you will most likely have to queue to get your cookie (no more than 15mins though). The shop is located in a very narrow street and the inside is supernice as well, not to mention the smell.”

Dessert Shop

“Because it is owned and run by Argentinians, they make the cookies right there in their own kitchen, and the coffee is very good. Also they are situated at the back on the New Church, so when you are in the center instead of going to Starbucks or any other boring same old-same old place you can have your coffee here and taste Argetinian alfajores de maicena. ”

“Lovely little shop in heart of Amsterdam. Treats to buy for home, but the main star are the waffles. They come in three sizes and can be warm or cold, I recommend the warm. With a lot of different flavors options on them. Be careful though, they are pretty sweet, so choose your size and combination wisely! Also, it can be pretty crowded during the day, so try to come in off peak times of the day”
