As the cold slowly sets in, there's no better excuse to treat yourself – and perhaps some friends and family – to a heartwarming cheese fondue. MASTERS lists a number of very suitable addresses, including baguettes, fresh vegetables and a good glass of wine of course.

In the Good Hour | Haarlem

Restaurant in 't Goede Uur is one of the oldest restaurants in Haarlem and has long been known for its cheese and wine. The restaurant started as an establishment where visitors could indulge in fine wine and different types of French cheese. Cheese fondue has been served here since 1967.

From November until the beginning of 2024, the real Gouda cheese fondue will be back in the romantic Museum Café in Gouda. Here you can enjoy the different types of cheese (fondue) with carrot, cauliflower, radish, nachos and tortellinis with friends or family. Not a cheese lover? No problem. The restaurant offers the so-called satay fondue.

Melt | Amsterdam

In the cozy Nine Streets you will find Smelt. For more than a quarter of a century, they had been neighbours across the street: a brown literary café and a cheese specialty shop filled from floor to ceiling with cheese. Café De Doffer and De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam in the Runstraat, De 9 Straatjes. Both are household names in the center of Amsterdam. Since January 2022, both businesses have merged into Restaurant Smelt.

Bakery | Utrecht 

On the corner of Plompetorengracht and Wittevrouwenstraat, baker's blood has been running through the veins since the eighteenth century. The old vaults, where several bakery families baked and served their artisanal products, serve as a restaurant. And, when it's in season, cheese fondue is served here.
