  • Aside from being an amazing place to buy hundreds types of cheeses, this is a great place to have lunch. Simple baguettes with cold cuts and the best cheeses you can imagine. Tops.  more »
  • Best place to buy cheese in Amsterdam. The variety is huge and the options range from simple Gouda goat cheese that only had two chicks and live a thousand meters of altitude. In other words, prepare to be in an eternal question or come back some other time. You can try the cheeses that are being cut for the sandwiches, but make ugly face for tourists who want to experience several different types. The sandwiches are phenomenal with always fresh ingredients. It is worth remembering that the brazilian legislation now allows you to bring cheeses, provided they are vacuum packed.

  • The best cheese store in Amsterdam in my opinion! Great, broad selection of local cheeses including many artisan, small-producer cheeses and organic cheeses. Does not feel corporate or over-branded like other larger cheese stores. Staff are very helpful.
  • Insane cheese selection. The best part about this place though is the ham and cheese sandwiches you can get in the back. Don't be afraid to ask for a spread or two on it as well (recommend the artichoke pesto and mustard mayo).
  • The one and only place to go to get cheese in Amsterdam. I go every 6 months and by 300 Euros worth, and use it every day of the year. Awesome.
  • Great selection of cheeses, very knowledgeble and pleasant staff. However, like many places in Amsterdam, you don't get a receipt for your purchase, and there are no weight labels on cheese, so you don't really know if their calcullation/charge is accurate. So, don't get surprised if your bill ends up being quite a bit higher than you expected.
  • Great selection of cheese (and other accompanying items). Staff was helpful and made some great recommendations.
