Apple Pie at Winkel Cafe



After the sensual feast that was the Noordmarket, it seemed fitting to complete a busy morning's shopping and browsing with some coffee and the best apple cake the city has to offer. Winkel Cafe is a bit of an institution, despite the comedy name, and is a great place to sit and people watch, as it seems to be quite a cool hangout and free from marauding tourists. The apple pie by the way is fabulous, and definately memorable - however I could have done without the squirty cream or at least could have traded it for something thicker and far more luscious.

Steven, "squirty cream" I have never heard it called that before but you are right, there is nothing worse than that fake cream, how hard is it to put out some clotted cream with a spoon??? I would even prefer they put some pouring cream around the edge, no work at all, just pour!?!?! The cakes does look great, put that on our list when I visit, PLEASE!!! Vida x x x

The apple pie there is amazing and I take everyone who visits me there. However I must tell you that the squirty cream is indeed real whipped cream that is piped onto the pie. Not the canned stuff... And it does taste great!
