The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I scheduled high tea with them. I wanted to do a master class but those were only on weekends. I was very happy with my choice though. I was given so many different pastries and pie and about 12 kinds of different tea to choose from. She even got me a tea from downstairs in the shop to try. I got a history lesson on the shop as well. High tea meant that I could have unlimited tea and since no one else was scheduled to come after me, she said I could stay as long as I wanted til closing. I got there at 4pm so that was a very long time. I stayed til 6 and had a very nice relaxing time. I discovered a new tea and bought 100 grams. I would have bought more if my space wasn't limited. I will definitely be ordering more from them in the future.

You have to book this . We were lucky to go on a quiet Monday afternoon so we got in without reservation , we were lucky as they can only seat two couples maximum and I’ve been told it’s very busy . For your money you get a choice of Tea and cake, some history about the building from a very nice lady from Dundee. On top of this whilst you’re sat there you’re away from the world in what is a very quaint building . There are some good photo opportunities both upstairs and in the shop.
It’s rare that I do something and think “That was cheap “ . When my girlfriend told me how much it was I thought that was each not for both (I was wrong). Also for sale downstairs are a vast array of teas for the connoisseur.
I will post some pics I took , once I get back to Uk

I booked a table here for myself and my friend on our recent visit to Amsterdam. We loved it! Everything was so quaint like a tea room should be. We had the whole room to ourselves and such an amazing selection of tea to choose from. The package of tea and apple pie was very reasonably priced and the apple pie was delicious and homemade. They even accommodated a vegan option of small cakes for me which I really appreciated. Anne-Marie was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable about the house itself. We will hopefully be back again soon!

This was such a wonderful find. Kirsten and her husband Niles were so hospitable. We learned all about the history of the building while enjoying a lovely cup of tea and a slice of homemade apple pie. Finding and enjoying this place was the highlight of the day for us!

I made a walking tour in Amsterdam and came across this little small house which I have already seen from a boat.

The people running the little tea shop are amazingly hospitable, the tea is lovely, the cake too and we love the authenticity of the whole place. A must see/drink.

We popped into this quaint little tea shop as we ambled through the streets of Amsterdam and what a pleasure it was. Niels was incredibly friendly, talking us through the history of the place and giving us the lowdown on all the teas they offer. We left with a bag of the house blend (on Niels' recommendation) and it is one of the nicest teas we've had the pleasure to taste. We wish we'd have tried the tearoom upstairs - something we'll definitely do next time we're in Amsterdam!

How anyone could live in that building will always be a mystery to me. There is a tea shop located in the building now. The house is basically a miniature canal house, 2 meters wide. Funny sight.

We recently visited Amsterdam and this was one of the most magical parts of our trip! We were welcomed like friends and shown to the second floor where we had a private table for brunch. The owners were so kind and helpful, it was really interesting to learn all about the house and traditional Dutch meals. The tea and brunch was absolutely delicious, we can’t recommend it enough. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam, it was the perfect way to spend the morning! Thank you so much :)

Really worth booking for this experience. Beautiful home made cakes and selection of teas to chose from. Beautiful settings in the two rooms. Well worth a visit.
Only disappointment was no soap in the bathroom
