My two favorite places to indulge on my sugar cravings are Huize van Wely (located in the Gelderlandplein shopping mall, Beethovenstraat and Amstelveen shopping centre) and Linnick. The first is one I am already a fan of for a long time, as my parents maintain the tradition of treating me and my sister with a birthday cake from their hands (strangely enough their introduction of the company began in Indonesia where their only offshore shops are located). And boy are their sugary treats little masterpieces themselves! Almost too pretty to cut into little eatable pieces, but on the other hand too tasty to leave untouched. They also offer patisserie workshops for ambitious amateur bakers wanting to master the techniques themselves in their HQ in Noordwijk.
Furthermore, Linnick, which is located on the Amstelveenseweg, is famous for its macarons, but also offers super delicious pastries and even has a small coffee corner. The bakery can also be seen from the counter that I personally like as it gives it a more personal touch and contributes to the idea that all products are fresh and homemade. Be sure to also try their little chocolate tart, which will definitely be the star among our chocolate fans! The assortment broadens during seasonal events with handmade chocolate bunnies and themed pastries, which I enjoy trying and which almost never let me down.
