Found this on a gluten free app. The staff are very helpful if you have food allergies, they went through the whole menu with me to tell me what I could have. The sandwiches are fantastic. Great stop after a cafe.

Looking round for somewhere not too busy for a bite to eat found this little place. Staff friendly if a little confused that we'd come into a chocolate shop but aren't eating chocolate. Lovely apple cake with real whipped cream. And the gin and tonic...More

Thank you so much! The gin tonic sorbet is also one of our favorites.. It's made with 10% of gin, that's why the taste is so good. Especially for the warmer days its delicious!

Easy to get to, and plenty of choices. I had the apple crumble with whipped cream. (Picture) I'll be back for the waffles and croissants covered in white and dark chocolate.

We stopped for sweet treat, and a “treat” it was! Topped with one of the most fabulous ice cream added on top the molten chocolate and the result is WOW!

The waffles were outstanding, the place is cute, the only inconvenience is that they don't have a bathroom.

Enjoyed a caramel cookie small ice cream here. It was delicious. Cute napkins too. Interesting and quirky “props” like chocolate to snort for free - only in Amsterdam!

There’s so many sweet treats to chose from. I had the waffle, which was amazing, with melted dark chocolate on. Prices are reasonable for quality of food.
