Review: De Drie Graefjes (Rokin) American Bakery Amsterdam

Over 20 years already De Drie Graefjes in Amsterdam, the Netherlands has delighted us with delicious cakes. They’re a lunchroom and American bakery in one. This isn’t the first review of a good bakery on the blog. Another perfect cake place in Amsterdam is Café Winkel 43. Utrecht also has some perfect patisseries, such as Hop & Stork and Bond en Smolders.

De Drie Graefjes Rokin

The bakery has 4 different stores in Amsterdam, two of them are next to each other on the Rokin. One is the bakery, which is the store where you can get your orders and take-away. The other one is the lunchroom where you can sit down. There’s a small terrace outside on the sidewalk. There are a few tables downstairs and more upstairs.

We’ve been to De Drie Graefjes – American bakery several times and I once had take away cakes from them. We sat outside a few times and inside, downstairs as well as upstairs.

All the times we’ve been there it was busy or relatively busy. We were never the only ones and sometimes had to wait shortly for a place on the terrace. We’ve visited the bakery both on weekdays as well as on the weekend.
