Pompadour in Amsterdam's 9 straatjes (9 streets) is one of our favourite pastry stores.

They work with the season's best products to produce irresistible creations. The array on offer extends from tarts, to meringues and the most perfect chocolate truffles.

As chefs, the most important thing to us besides how beautiful things are is the flavours. Pompadour manages to maintain the perfect balance. The pastries are never too sweet, so that the flavour of the core ingredient is accentuated.

We suggest you either go and spoil yourself in their classic tearoom or take one of the pastries away to enjoy at home.
