Unique dessert spots in Amsterdam

Indulging in something sweet is undoubtedly one of life’s best joys. For those exploring Amsterdam with a sugar craving, a world of unique dessert spots awaits. From crispy cruffins to teeny tiny pastries, here is a round-up of some of the most unexpected, memorable, and mouth-watering desserts you must try.

Quench your sugar cravings

Tudy's SUGARBAR in Oud-West is a pastel-hued palace for handmade ice cream, freshly baked treats, and creative desserts like Cake Cups and Sammy Bars. For a decadent dessert drink, try one of the milkshakes, ice cream floats or a sumptuous affogato with coffee. Founded by Nekeia, this new pudding hotspot was lovingly inspired by her grandmother Tudy's legendary fried chicken recipe - and yes, that means there's chicken and waffles on the menu, too!

A batch made in heaven

Warning: these are not just ordinary cookies. Belicio Cheats offers a vast selection of fillings - think red velvet, M&M’S, Oreo, and the popular Kinder chocolate one (also known as the Kinderella). Alongside all these moreish flavours, all their cookies are amusingly decorated with chocolate pieces on the outside.

If you’ll be the bread, I’ll be the Nutella

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michelle is well-known for making some of the best pizzas in town, but did you know that they also offer a signature dessert called the Nodini Nutella? It is essentially deep-fried knots of pizza dough with Nutella. If you still have room left for dessert, go for it!

Dessert & cocktails

Sea Salt & Chocolate is Amsterdam’s first ‘cocktail dessert bar’ where delicious sweets like orange almond cake or passionfruit self-saucing cake are served with perfectly selected alcohol pairings. These could vary from bubbles, cocktails, or even beers. Next time you’re there, ask for recommendations to see which tipple would taste best with your dessert platter.

You stole my tart

The authentic French patisserie, Petit Gateau, stacks its mini tarts into a stunningly colourful display with seemingly endless flavours to choose from. Not only do they have these mini works of art, but they also have other delicious desserts to choose from, like eclairs, macarons, and more.

Yummy in my tummy

If you’re looking for the most delicious cheesecake in town, head to Yumbum Bakery. Enjoy a large variety of unique flavours from passionfruit to stroopwaffle cheesecakes. They also have a range of cupcakes, homemade whole cakes and more sweets to pick from.

Freshly made with love

On the hunt for tasty pastries, quiches, muffins, and more goodies, all made fresh and in-house? The towering window displays at De Laatste Kruimel are where they’ve all been hiding. Inside, the vibes are incredibly homey, and there’s even a cosy canalside terrace at the back. We especially love their famous carrot cake…just phenomenal!

Cruffin compares to you

The bakers at Saint Jean are experts in the art of making cruffins - the perfect hybrid of a croissant and a muffin. If you haven’t got your mouth around their unbeatable pumpkin jam and vanilla custard one yet, then have you really had a cruffin before?

You’ll love this one so matcha

Yusu has you covered with its unique dessert collection inspired by Japan?, filled with different combinations of unexpected mouth-watering flavours. They really take your regular coffee experience to the next level with their combination of iced coffee with ice cream. We also especially love to pair our coffee with their exceptional matcha layered crepe cake special.

All the way from ancient Rome

From Italian cakes and pastries to biscuits and Easter cakes: Salvo and his wife Limau know how to do it. But what put Salvo on the Amsterdam hotspot map is undoubtedly the maritozzi (brioche-like buns which are eaten for breakfast in Italy). Unique flavours include ones such as their Chocolate custard, strawberry whipped cream flavour with pistachio and rose petals. Take a look at more of their different maritozzi flavours yourself.
