Stroopwaffle at Hans Egstorf in Amsterdam
Non-smokers friendly
Sweet Tooth

One of the major things to eat when visiting Amsterdam is the circular waffle called Stroopwaffle. A round shaped, very thin waffle is cut in the middle and spread with creamy caramel syrup then lightly toasted in the oven. A lady, facing the glass on a busy street in Amsterdam prepares one Stroopwaffle at a time. 


A stroopwafel is a waffle made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup filling in the middle. Stroopwafels are popular in the Netherlands and were first made in the city of Gouda.

Known to be in a liquid form, waffles are poured into a machine which bakes them on both sides. The Stroopwaffle comes in a paste form, molded like a ball and set to bake in a special flat toaster.


A gentleman takes the orders, a lady prepares them, this bakery seems to be serving customers for years. 

Tasty waffles filled with caramel or served with molten chocolate on the side. I had one of both and enjoyed them to the last bit.
