Speciality Food Stores

We don’t know about you, but we are real “foodies”. Therefore we couldn’t do without a speciality food store section. Here you will find shops that are specialised in a specific ‘food’ type. Not only are these shops specialised, we also think they are very special. As you can see by our recommendations, we are quite addicted to cheese and chocolate. But it is not only our addiction that made them pass our selection criteria, it is also because these chocolate shops and cheese shops adds something special to your 'shopping' experience in Amsterdam.
These are our recommendations for speciality food stores in Amsterdam:
Go to the details & reviews page of 't Goede Soet chocolate shop in Amsterdam 't Goede Soet is a cute, romantic, little chocolate shop. All their chocolates, bonbons, pastries and cakes and a lot of the other sweets they sell, are homemade. Though not on the premisses of the shop in Amsterdam. This corner shop has windows on two sides, which means you get to enjoy more of the the beautiful window dressing that they do. Especially before public holidays such as Easter, Sinterklaas and Christmas.

All of their homemade products are made using Callebaut chocolate.

Go to the details & reviews page of Reypenaer Cheese Store & Tasting Rooms in Amsterdam On the opposite corner of our other favourite shop - Puccini Bomboni - is another favourite shop: Reypenaer Cheese Store & Tasting Rooms. Reypenaer is a famous cheese that won several awards and is made by cheese house, Wyngaard Kaas. The cheese matures in the 100 years old cheese warehouse in Woerden.

The cheese tasting downstairs gives you a good idea of the different cheeses that Reypenaer has, although we must say that the last time, the tasting was done a bit amateurish.

Go to the details & reviews page of the Tea Bar, speciality food store in Amsterdam Delicious smells draw you into this cute shop on Haarlemmerdijk.
