Best Pastry Shops in Amsterdam


Every time we see an Instagram Reel about fluffy or crunchy pastries, we want to go and get one immediately. Now, we don’t live in Paris, but we have Amsterdam! And thankfully the Dutch capital gives us some finger-licking pastry shops you want to go and check out.

Craft Amsterdam | Coffee & Pastry

This 100 percent gluten-free pastry shop in Amsterdam de Pijp, has totally blown us away. With a sister that has an allergy to gluten, I initially came here for her. But I think I ate the crunchiest croissant, ever! Best of all, they were still warm. If you don’t want to miss out on the best pastries and bread rolls, come early to avoid a line. You can also order online, but they will be delivered frozen, so you can warm them at home.

Rise Bakery

When you walk in this bakery, it’s a bit steamy and hot because you are literaly walking into the bakery itself. A counter with beautiful freshly baked pastries on display will greet you. Go for the round wheel croissants, especially when it has the mango passionfruit filling! Crab a coffee to go while you’re here. Located on the famous Albert Cuyp.

Saint Jean

This French style pastry shop in Amsterdam is so so good. Especially the Pistachio cruffins (Muffin-Rolled vegan croissant dough). Good to now; this bakery is plant-based and also creates birthday cakes, and if you can’t make it to their location at Lindengracht, you can also order online.

Et Claire

This amazing pastry shop in Amsterdam brings you straight to Paris. Be aware, it’s a little addictive, to say the least. Cute on-the-go bags make it a great spot for a busy lifestyle – but never miss out on the sweet things in life.

Have a Roll

Pretty new in Amsterdam, but their successs started in the city of antwerp. Now it’s here, you have to try their famous vegan rolls! 


From one vegan place to another, because Margo’s offers such amazing vegan pastries in all sizes and options. Filled croissants being a favourite!

Mr. Nata

Recently opened (Feb 2023), this pastry shop in Amsterdam serves delicious Portuguese sweets and coffee. What started as a delivery business has now expanded to a coffee corner in De Pijp. Try their signature pastel de nata, and also other tasty Portuguese pastries.

Fort Negen

Search for a list about bread and pastries, and Fort Negen will be on it. They are massively hyped, which results in long lines in front of their location at the Jan Evertsenstraat in Amsterdam West. But we have to admit, they are pretty damn good with dough.

Amsterdam Baking Company

Medialunas (something between a brioche and a croissant) & Argentinian-style pastries for the win! Their medialunas are made with a sweet enriched (eggs and butter) dough with many layers and a subtle hint of lemon and vanilla. It takes a lot of effort to create, so enjoy this one with your eyes closed.

Van Stapele Koekmakerij

This local cookie is legend in Amsterdam! People are not standing in line for anything, so believe the hype. For instance; their most famous cookie is made from dark chocolate, with a white filling inside. Cookies are hot when you receive them, so eat one immediately and enjoy on the spot.

Grammes Amsterdam

Famous for their tasty and crunchy croissants, pain au chocolat and madeleines, but also pretty tarts. Real craftsmanship happening here! Located in Amsterdam East.

Coffee & Coconuts

Although they don’t classify as a pastry shop, they sell a killer almond croissant there we believe you should try. Worth coming back for, and while you’re on the go, check out their coffee too which made it into our Best Coffee in Amsterdam list.

Another bakery and pastry shop in Amsterdam that has a foreign touch – this time Italy. Go for their briose filled with fresh cream, mmm!

Scandanavian Ambassy

Get your cinnamon buns here people, damn! They change their pastries now and then, but right now they are serving delicious buns filled with a creamy marzipan filling, roasted almonds and fresh cream. Coffee is pretty good also!
