Better than cookies

Why locals love it
Locals know that the 20 minute wait is well worth it for the best cookies in Amsterdam. Tourists passing through the narrow streets near the Singel canal can't resist the look of this grand, but tiny shop. And if you are looking the wrong way, the smell will make you spin on your heels!
Why you should visit it
If you are looking for the ultimate indulgence, or a highlight to a picnic when heading to the Voldelpark, you can't go wrong with a box of 6 of these cookies. They are always cooked to perfection, served warm the whole day through and immaculately presented.
There is only one tip, and that's not to worry about what to order as the girls from Van Stapele only make one flavour of perfectly considered cookie.
