Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

The three of us went to the Koekela to have coffee with pie. We chose chocolate mousse and cappuccino. Service was okay, but the poor quality of chocolate left much to be desired. Moreover, prices are high and seatings feel rather improvised. 27.45€ (9.15€ pp)

One of the most popular confectioneries on the Rotterdam, with variety of cakes and muffins. You can also order cakes away and they have few tables to eat in. Service is OK but they normally are very busy

We tried Key Lime Pie everywhere in the Florida Keys this summer. Conclusion: the one you get at Koekela is unsurpassed.

We received a koekela box with a variety of cookies. They didn't remind me of American cookies at all. There is too much sugar and butter used without quality chocolate, overall just poor quality and high price

A nice place to start your day. We had to wait a bit standing on the side as it was quite busy, but the staff were very friendly and got as a table as quickly as they could. Both drinks were really good (the matcha...specially) and both cakes (coconut cale and brownie) were both really delicious as well. Worth the visit.More

Cherry cheesecake and lime pie are really amazing. You should totally visit this place. In addition, the prices are reasonable (3.5 € for a cake).

Went there for cheese cake and coffee, both were average. Why on earth someone goes for the trouble of opening a shop and not stand out?? The cookie offered with coffee was better than those I bought, something odd. The cherry cheese cake was ok....Very limited choices, mostly two of: cookies, muffins, fudge, brownies, cakes, and cheese cakes, etc, so don’t bother going unless this is what you want.More

This place has cookies, cookies and more cookies.Then there's cakes, coffee, tea, lunch etc. But I only go there for what they're good at. If you have problems with sugar, this will not become your favourite hang-out
