these cookies in amsterdam are so, so good
Sweet or with a bit of salt, crunchy or soft. Cookies are always a good idea, even as breakfast. The Dutch stroopwafels are one of my favourite, but I have to say that I like chocolate chip cookies even better. That’s why I tried to find out where they have the best cookies in Amsterdam. So check out this list with the best cookies in Amsterdam that you really have to try!
6 x cookies in amsterdam that you want to eat every day
Melly’s Cookie Bar: This cookie bar has so many different kinds of cookies, deciding which one you’re going to get will be hard. They have lemon, choco, nuts, coconuts and many others too. Melly’s Cookie Bar is located in the center, so craving something sweet while shopping? Go to this place!
Van Stapele Koekmakerij: There is a chance that you have to stand in line here, because they have the best cookies ever. They only have one kind, but trust me, you want more than one. It’s a chocolate cookie with melted white chocolate inside. Tip: go here during the week, the line will probably be shorter!
CT. Coffee & Coconuts: In the Pijp you’ll find CT. Coffee & Coconuts, a perfect place to sit down and work with your laptop. And during your work session, make sure to eat a cookie and gain some extra energy. They have one with sea salt and hazelnut and my gosh, it’s good!
De Drie Graefjes: This is an American Bakery with two locations in the city, you’ve probably tried their red velvet cake before. They also have super tasty chocolate chip cookies. They have different flavours but the one with white coco and macadamia is my favourite!
Lot Sixty One: Not 100% sure if they always have cookies here, but if they have them you should try them. They’re delicious! Fun: the interior has a industrial meets cozy vibe and during the summer you can sit down outside and enjoy the sun.
