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.

Stumbled upon this place and stopped for a quick bite of something sweet. It was not overly busy or loud at that time. The waffle with melted chocolate was amazing and the brownie pie was to die for. I loved reading all the gelato flavors...More

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.

A paradise for chocoholics and not only. The best ice creams, the best stroopwafles, the best poffertjes,the best cookies, the best chocolate of Amsterdam. In every season of the year it’s always a good idea come to visit Metropolitan , near Dam square.
