Expensive for a simple croissant. They also charge locals and tourists different prices. Looks tasty in the window but not really.

My husband made me go in there every day we were in Amsterdam to get their pastries. Always fresh. Miss Amsterdam pastries and sandwiches (and cheeses).

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
