Urban Cacao

Urban Cocoa was founded in Amsterdam on 1st November 2013 where they produce chocolate in the center of Amsterdam. Under the inspired leadership of chocolatier, patissier and glacier Hans Mekking, they produce a varied assortment of patisserie in an open workshop of over 400m2 .

Besides chocolate, they also create macarons and contemporary pastry work. You are always welcome to go and taste. Their workshop has room for you to enjoy a coffee and ice cream in the summer. Always fresh and transparent,  their products are made of natural ingredients with an eye for quality and a sound source.

We love the brownies and blondies - do go and try them for yourselves!

Pompadour is one of our favourite patisseries in Amsterdam. They have a tea room on the Huidenstraat, part of the famous 9 straatjes (9 streets).

Their cakes and pastries have the perfect balance of sugar. Our all time favourite is the rhubarb tart when it's in season! The chocolate truffles, made with Valhrona chocolate, are also to die for.

Treat yourself to one of their pastries with a pot of tea for a prefect afternoon treat or spoil someone special with a box of their chocolate truffles.
