This is a big and kinda noisy café full of cupcakes, cookies, cakes and other typical bakery stuff. I'm sure there are things there that taste great, or at least that's what I'd like to think, but I wasn't lucky with what I ordered. I had a New York cheesecake which tasted nothing like the typical New York cheesecake. There... More

I was appalled at the look of their cakes. They may be huge but I saw a number of cakes sloping to one side and hastily frosted. Just because they're American doesn't mean they have to be sloppy. It looked as though a child had baked their cakes. The taste of their cakes were okay, the brownie undercooked, muffins were... More

The place was crowded so we assumed it was good because there were a lot of cafés and restaurants around and they were empty. We didn't make a mistake! The food was quite nice and also the coffee.. my husband had a salad and i had the tuna melt i post here

My dutch friends introduced me to this little gem and whenever I am back 'home' I always nip in to grab a hot chocomel and red velvet cake. I have now introduced it to my 6 year old daughter and she also now always requests to come to De Drie Graefjes with me now as she also loves it

Great cakes and my club sandwich was decent. Girlfriends meal on the other hand was this cheese soup that was just awful and a bowl of oil. The waitress then decided to ask her if she liked the soup... after leaving the whole thing 😂 I'd go back for.the cakes alone.

This cafe is on Rokin close to the tram stops. They do nice lunches, but their carrot cake is to die for. You can get a slice or a cupcake, lovely and moist with cream cheese topping. They also do takeaway cakes from their bakery next door. Staff are helpful

Fantastic cakes baked on the premises. Small area to sit downstairs but there is a larger area above the shop. Extensive choice of cakes, coffees and teas. The slices are HUGE and very filling! We passed a few cake shops but this one had a good range of cakes.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
