You want to go here.
The smell alone will send you to lactose heaven.
Deep selection of charcuterie and cheeses, local and otherwise.
Women behind the counter could not have been nicer or more helpful.
Asked what my daughter might like & she sliced off a nice piece from a round. Daughter tasted, eyes rolled back. A winner!
These people know their stuff and have top goods.
Hit the boutique wine shop up the block and you are set.
Situated in one of the best browsing hoods in A'dam
De Kaaskamer is a boutique cheese shop. It is less touristy and more for the locals and those who plan to eat the cheese within the next 48 hours. Everything is fresh and vacuum sealed for freshness.
We stumbled in because I wanted to buy some cheese to bring back to the states. I ended up only with a mini wheel of gouda but we also got to sample a few cheeses. They have fresh bread and sandwiches to go. This is an excellent place to pick up some lunch (there are no tables but you can eat anywhere outside) or for food to put in your backpack during your bike ride.
Prices are on par with the quality. You will get what you pay for and you will be very happy. It's amazing the selection they have and they are very friendly. Highly recommend for a top notch cheese shop experience in Amsterdam.
We discovered "De Kaaskamer" on a rainy afternoon while walking through the streets in Amsterdam. Give that both of us are cheese enthusiasts, we entered the store and were welcomed by the smell and aroma of a vast variety of cheeses and sausages. There were also olives and other snack-like items that you can taste and get to go.
We tried the young and old Gouda, and also the truffle Gouda. All three were absolutely incredible. The young cheese is soft and mild in flavor. It melts on your mouth as you chew. The old Gouda however, is harder in texture and extremely flavorful/savory. It will make you salivate. Amazing! The truffle Gouda was good too, but can be hit or miss if you are not a fan on truffles. It actually had saved pieces of black truffle. Exquisite!
Now for the sausages, we tried the truffle sausage and the pata negra-- both out of control great. I'm saddened just thinking about this.
I suggest getting the cheeses and sausages pre-cubed, stop and get some bread, and make a picnic by one of the canals. An experience you will not forget.
I really miss this place. Thank you De Kaaskamer for the amazing memory and hope to meet again (even if we order online).
This store has a website and they will ship internationally in vacuum-sealed bags. Great for when your 'supply' runs out. e-cheese.nl
An impressive selection of cheeses, olives, etc. It was a bit difficult to choose, given my lack of Dutch language skills. The staff offered to let me try anything, though, and tried to be more helpful than I would let them be!
I ended up with a couple of great cheeses and the prices seemed quite reasonable.
Fantastic little cheese shop in the Nine Streets neighborhood (De Negen Straatjes) that has a large selection of cheese along with meats, olives, and other assorted snacks. I stopped into several other cheese shops in Amsterdam and although De Kaaskamer doesn't offer all the samples that some of the more commercial shops do, they make up for it in quality and variety. For those visiting Amsterdam, this is the perfect place to pick up some snacks to enjoy along a canal, back at your hotel, or back home-wherever that may be!
Great cheese shop!!! Nice selection.
The best cheese shop -- bar none -- in Amsterdam. It's in the great shopping area of the 9 little alleys. Every type of cheese you can imagine, plus a wonderful selection of Dutch cheeses. Also, they carry a complete selection of Charcuterie. You can get Jamon Iberico for half the price of the US. They have a small selection of wines. It all makes a great meal for the hotel room. It also was the last place for me to to visit before going to the airport. I can't recommend highly enough.
