  • You have many cheese shops in Amsterdam - this is one of the best. They have an unaccountable number of cheeses to sell and very nice and welcoming atmosphere. If you want to bring good cheese back ho...  more »
  • Know the Subway? Now he gets good, with a plethora of breads, cheeses, sauces and condiments. The price is very fair and the varied and tasty ingredients, more than recommend.

  • I love cheese, so have the chance to be shown around in the Dutch world of cheeses by a local nerd was something I looked forward to. But considering the money spend, I would expect a higher level of ...  more »

  • Best range of cheese! Try the cumin cheeses. If the blocks of cheese is too much, you can ask for slices of the large pieces behind the counter. Also the baguettes are amazing - they have a daily special but you can get whatever you want. Mine with cumin cheese, ham and homemade pesto was only €5.50!
  • This place is really cool. Tons of cheeses and wine which are all reasonably priced. The staff is very freindly and helpful. You can't sit and eat inside, but you can buy some cheese and a bottle to go, and they slice up the cheese and pack it all up. Would definitely recommend.
  • A wonderful cheese shop! It's small, but it has got a great choice of cheese: lots of Dutch, but also French, English, Spanish, Italian! The staff is friendly, quick, and competent. The lady serving us vacuumed my cheese for transport and added cheese paper to unpack the cheese at home. And the prices are clearly below of what I had expected.
  • A wonderful place for cheese in Amsterdam! The staff there were very helpful in guiding us through the amazing collection they have. They let us try many different types until we made our decisions finally. They vaccum-pack everything so you are able to take it back home and it'll last for up to six months. Highly recommend visiting here if you want to take cheese back home from a visit to Amsterdam.
  • An excellent authentic cheese shop. This is where I bring all my visitors. The staff is friendly and speaks English and some German (possibly French, didn’t try them) and are very knowledgable. How it works: you wait for being helped and tell them what you like. A typical question would be if you could taste a young and an old Gouda to find out what you prefer). You are getting to taste different cheeses and the hard Dutch cheese can be sealed for transport. Next to original Dutch Gouda, the assortment is changing all the time with locally sourced and in some cases ecological or ‘slow food’ cheeses. If you are looking for an authentic Dutch experience, this is the place to be. This is a Dutch shop and for me as a Dutch person, I like the service. They recognize me now and we have a little chat. Things are going slowly but thoroughly. Don’t expect to be pampered like in a typical tourist attraction, that’s not the real Amsterdam style. My experience with lots of visitors was great. But bring some time and don’t go ig you arrive 30 minutes before closing if you want to take time for the real experience. There are Albert Heijn supermarkets where you can quickly grab the normal (still good) Dutch cheese if you are in a hurry.
