Van Stapele Koekmakerij, Amsterdam
(4.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Bite into arguably the best cookie in Amsterdam at Van Stapele Koekmakerij. This bakery claims to have created the perfect cookie recipe and that one bite is all they need to convince you in the superiority of their treats. Crispy dark chocolate on the outside and melted white chocolate in the middle make for perfect cookies, baked on the premises throughout the day. Grab one of their hot beverages to go, as the rich taste of the cookie blends well with some coffee or tea.

  • These cookies are insanely good! So rich and indulgent, I naughtily had two, but I think that might be a lot! The shop is small and tastefully decorated. It would fit well in the likes of Fortnums or ...  more »
  • The best cookies in the world, a must, I think, for those who go to visit the city of Amsterdam. Slightly difficult to find, but the quality of her cookies, fully repays the effort

  • Everyone should try this place at least once. The make one thing only - chocolate cookies with a melted white chocolate middle - and boy are they good at it! Priced at 2 EUR for a fairly small cookie, but it's quite filling.
  • Amazing chocolate cookies, with Valrhona quality cocoa. They make one thing and they do it perfectly. The place is tiny, smells fantastic, inviting you to enter and they bake all day. Cannot resist on these cookies, if you like good chocolate.
  • This has to be on the 'Must Do' list of places to visit on a foodie's self-guided walking food tour of Amsterdam. Van Stapele Koekmakerij literally makes only one kind of cookie. That's seriously all they sell. The shop is so cute and charming, and they make and bake those lovely cookie morsels right in front of you. Best cookie ever! Perfectly soft chocolate cookie with an ever so slightly crunchy and perfectly caramelized outer crust. But, what puts it really quite over the top is the gooey white chocolate filling that ever so wonderfully contrasts with the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate base. Oh heaven!
  • Cookies are ok, however I'd not call them extraordinary. They are freshly baked. Nice presentation. Be prepared for longer wait (20min) if there are people queued outside
  • Simply amazing! Aller lekkerste koekjes ooit! Not to be missed!
