No Stroopwafel but Hot Waffle in Volendam – Woltjes Review

In the quaint town of Volendam, nestled along the charming Haven road, we stumbled upon a hidden gem that offers authentic classic Dutch stroopwafels. Woltjes, a cosy shop with a unique combination of a museum and a sweet treat haven, beckoned us with promises of waffle goodness. As avid travellers with a penchant for exploring local flavours, we decided to forgo the traditional stroopwafel and opted for a classic waffle topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Our mid-day indulgence turned out to be the perfect pick-me-up during a day trip from Amsterdam.

Woltjes, known for its take-out-only concept, surprised us with its warm and inviting atmosphere. The charming aroma of freshly baked waffles filled the air as we approached the secluded little port and fishing harbour. The wooden benches across the pathway provided the ideal spot to savour our sweet delights while soaking in the picturesque surroundings.
