    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.

    Excellent selection of cheese. Great place to go if you are looking for a true cheese shop that's not just aimed at selling to tourists.

    This is one of those wonderful authentic stores where you find that rare combination of good quality products, excellent customer service, and friendly prices. It's a pleasure to shop here. My wife and I highly recommend De Kaaskamer. (If you are a tourist: bypass the tourist trap cheese stores. Buy the genuine stuff here instead).

    The tastiest brown bread, finest cheeses, and wonderful meats, spreads, olives, and other accompaniments! De Kaaskamer is our favorite cheese shop in Amsterdam. The shop makes delicious sandwiches to order, and also ships internationally.
