When visiting Amsterdam, you should know that the tour is full of shops where you can find something to eat. If one day a sweet craving strikes you, and more specifically a craving for cookies, there is an address that everyone in Amsterdam is watering: the Van Stapele biscuit factory.
The Van Stapele biscuit factory is well known by locals as well as visitors since it sells only 1 type of cookie: a dark chocolate cookie with a white chocolate runny heart. Since its creation in 2013, the shop has not changed, nor has its recipe.
The price of the cookie is only €2.50 but, at this price and given the popularity of the store, expect to spend time in line. Indeed, the shop welcomes hundreds of visitors every day and its schedule policy is very specific: the shop opens at 10 a.m. and closes when the last cookie is sold. We therefore recommend that you get there early to make sure you can taste the Van Stapele cookies!
