De Bakkerswinkel


These days we just love meeting friends for breakfast or brunch on a weekend morning. Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day to start with, but besides that, early in the day my kids are still well rested and thus more enjoyable (as opposed to overall crankiness at dinner time)! Also, like every other parent with little children, we’re awake early anyways, so we might as well start our social schedule before noon! (Of course the friends we are meeting have kids too – the friends without kids would be crazy to leave their beds before noon on a weekend morning! In fact, it should be forbidden – what a waste!)

My favourite breakfast place is ‘De Bakkerswinkel’ (The Bakers’ Shop). Not only can you buy yummy breads, cakes and scones at the counter of ‘The Bakkerswinkel’, they also serve a wonderful (Dutch style) breakfast, lunch or tea in the restaurant area, which always has a very cozy and homey feel to it! Think jars of honey and home-made jams on the table, big cups of cappuccinos (small cups of babyccinos for the little ones of course), baskets filled with delicious breads, scones, etc. The menu is big enough to have something yummy for everyone’s taste!

My favourite ‘Bakkerswinkel’ in Amsterdam (there are three of them) is the one in the Warmoesstraat (near Amsterdam’s Central Station). They have a cute little setup in the back for children (some toys, books and crayons on a cute little table), and my children always end up making friends up there (and leave us grown-ups alone for a bit)! They also have a couple of highchairs handy for smaller kids. And the staff is always very friendly!

What a great way to start a weekend day!
