“Awesome cakes”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

This is a small self service cafe with fabulous cakes. They have a great selection and the coffee is excellent. We visited here more than once it was very good.

“Cakes To Die For”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

Stumbled across this pattisserie of necessity whilst on a relaxed stroll around Amsterdam.
Its a self service cafe so there are no airs and graces just succulent tasty cakes, good strong coffee and a relaxed atmosphere with like minded spirits tucking in. Be warned - one look at the window display and you will have no choice...

“Tasty fare for a great price”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

We came across this place while trying to locate Pathe cinema house. While not too sure what to expect from the menu, we decided nevertheless to enter and find out. The ambience was really cool. This place was stocked up on a lot of goodies and we were really stumped for nearly fifteen minutes as we just could not make up our mind. Finally, we had a raisin fritter, a marzipan delight, a nougat pastry and a chocolate cake. This was washed down with a croquet and a coffee. All this for less than what we had expected. All the items tasted fantastic. Their breakfast and lunch menus are also quite good. Sad that none of us eat meat, otherwise we make have tried that as well. The staff was well mannered and did help us out with our queries. Next time around I am going to try a dry fruit pastry and get a large cake with my wife's photograph on it for her birthday. ;). Recommended for everybody. The Dutch are famous for their bakery products and this is very good place to get a try and enjoy Dutch baked goodies.

“Could of been better if the staff was nicer”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

After reading the Herb Lester review about this restaurant, my friend and I were set on going to try a croquette. They are famous for them after all. We were excited and well this is what happened..

We walked in, asked (in english since we do not know dutch) what typed of croquettes they have and the woman working initially said something in dutch to her co-worker and she then looked at us too. She was clearly making fun of us. For no reason. We were being very nice. She proceed to tell us all the options and we decided on trying the vegetable one since we came all that way. We waited and she gave them to us with no smile and being quite mean. We decided to go walk and eat them around the corner, only to find out that what we were given were spicy and meat filled. There was not a single vegetable. I can only assume this was done on purpose. Who does that to people? Not nice. Thank goodness I am not vegetarian, and I actually did like it. But would never recommend going there.

Kwekkeboom, Manager at Kwekkeboom Patisserie, responded to this review, 28 September 2012
Dear Jolyne,

Thanks for your visit & review.
First of all i would like to apologize for the bad experience, maybe the employee your mentioning was lost in translation.
I know that’s not an excuse for bad service, but I can’t imagine that any of our employees would do such a thing on purpose. We’ll take it up in the next staff meeting.

I hope to welcome you in one of our stores in the future for a better experience, and that you’ve had a pleased stay in Amsterdam anyways!

Kind regards,
P. Kwekkeboom
