This was right beside our hotel and has one of the best churros I have tasted, ever! If churros is not your thing, then the other desserts would tempt you too!

It was just off our hotel, so I visited it several times during the four days I stayed in Amsterdam. It was usually very busy, specially at night, and sometimes we had to wait for several minutes before getting our food, but the croissants and the traditional Poffertjes with wipped cream were delicious!

Stopped here to get a couple of doughnuts based on the amount of people visiting. Much of the business comes in for the churro's which we didn't try but the doughnuts we had were lovely.

Prices are ok, not much room for seating, staff are friendly - but the Churros are amazing. Get the churros. Enough said.

I took the churros without any toppings. It costs 5€ and it was enough for two people! You can also choose different kind of toppings for extra charce, example nutella! :)

We stumbled upon this place while heading back to the hotel and probably ended up eating way more than we intended to probably because we ended up there for Munchies. The Churros with Nutella were without a doubt the best I have ever had. The service is excellent and fast and quality of their food was well above average.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
