It’s a small shop easily missed on the Vijzelgracht, because the city decided to build a huge subway station in the area. If you’re inside you could think: “is this it?” Yes, Holtkamp offers Amsterdam’s finest patisserie, over more than 40 years now. It started with Cees Holtkamp and his wife, now his children took over the shop. They sell classic sweet delicacies like Tarte Tatin, (famous for) Croquettes, Tompouce and Charlotte Russes. You will love it, on Vijzelgracht 15.
