  • Great small little shops with lots of cheese! Best in Amsterdam in my opinion.Dropped $400 on about 9kg of various cheeses. The 4yr old gouda is excellent. Can't wait for it to come in the mail.  more »
  • This place is a must for cheese lovers. Browse (and taste) the cheeses, get expert advice and get a cheese toasty for lunch while you are there. It is less commercial than some of the chain cheese sho...  more »

  • Stopped by De Kaaskamer (Kaas Cheese) on Runstraat recently and very much enjoyed an Old Amsterdam and Brie with truffle cheeses purchased here. Both were very high quality, flavourful and much enjoyed over the next few days for afternoon snacks in our hotel room. This is a serious cheese shop, one well worth popping in for a few minutes to see many local cheeses and to 'smell' the strong aroma within. Its a neat place to see as a tourist and why make a purchase or two if you plan to be in Amsterdam for a few days and have time to enjoy them. De Kaaskamer opening hours are 9-6pm (Tues - Fri), 9-5pm (Sat) and 12-5pm (Sun and Mon).
  • The best cheese shop/deli in Amsterdam. Here is a shop that sells cheese along with many other fantastic food, homemade pesto, fantastic Iberico ham and Salami, so many wonderful things, gastronomes find it and love it. There are of course many cheese shops in Amsterdam yet I feel they are more for tourist purchases, I believe this place to be a well established source for the best locally produced cheeses rather than mass produced tourist fodder :)
