The Pompadour is a small refined café that pampers you with stunningly beautiful pastry work. Everything's exquisite: quiches (one of the best I've had anywhere), little bonbons and of course, the amazing cakes. Perfect for a morning break before the museum or a lovely dessert afterward. .

This is the best cake shop in Amsterdam - I've probably done it a disservice as it's more a patisserie. Gorgeous cake, the best quiche I've ever had and a delectable array of chocolates. Classy, quiet and refined - a real treat!

This is a small cafe but if there are no seats - wait (you will not be disappointed). We stopped for a quick coffee but were tempted with a pastry - raspberry mousse cake. It was stunning. We then could not possibly leave without a selection of the lovely chocolates on display. Lovely staff here too.

Beautiful, with wood-carved walls, rows of bonbons, pastries and cakes. What you would imagine a European cafe to be. We pampered ourselves on a cold day with cappuccino and apple pie - excellent! Try the Florentine cookie in the window - dipped in chocolate. Lovely little place.

After a lot of sight-seeing it was a great stop for hot chocolate and a fruit tart. My son had something chocolaty and enjoyed that as well. Yummy.

We passed nearby when walking in the 9 streets area and the view from outside was really actracting. Luckily a table became free and we could enter and sit. A wide selection of chocolates and very tasty and original cakes was available. A great hot chocolate was a good complement for the cake. A sweet break with a raining and... More

For chocolate lovers this is heaven. Or if you like a marvellous cookie or cake. This place never disappoints. Clearly not cheap but worth every penny.
