I love the homemade chocolates here and there are many packaged chocolates you can take as souvenirs. The gelato is delicious and the waffles with cream were the best I've had in Amsterdam so far.

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.

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!
