Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle, in the very center of Amsterdam, there is a small and cozy shop selling one single product – the perfect chocolate cookie! That is Van Stapele Koekmakerij, a place with the concept so unique and cookies so good that it deserves to be called one of the must-visit Amsterdam attractions.
The idea behind Van Stapele Koekmakerij was to create the tastiest chocolate cookie ever. Dozens and dozens of trays went in and out of the oven before Vera van Stapele and her team finally created something incomparable and unrepeatable.
Made of the dark chocolate, the one of a kind Van Stapele cookie has a creamy white chocolate filling that literally melts on your tongue. It tastes the best when the chocolate is still melted, so we’d recommend to either eat it right away or warm before eating.
By the way, the cookies are quite big, so even one of those would be satisfying.
Van Stapele Koekmakerij does not belong to those Amsterdam attractions that are easy to find. The shop itself is rather small, as well as the street it’s located on is narrow. So, even though the Koekmakerij is in the very city center, you will hardly bump on it while just walking around.
Moreover, you can pass by hundreds of times and still never notice the Koekmakerij. The only thing that might give it away is the divine smell coming from the store. Either follow it or just come at Heisteeg 4, 1012 WC, Amsterdam.
The shop is open from 10:00 till 18:00 from Tuesday to Friday, from 12:00 till 18:00 on Monday, and from 11:00 till 18:00 on Saturday and Sunday.
Pamper yourself with the world’s tastiest chocolate cookie!
