I don’t approve of cheese (in fact I don’t eat cheese at all) but good bread…OMG, nothing beats good bread. Not even good cake or any pie, a good simple bread is the BEST.
This is the bakery. It is the best of its kind in Amsterdam. Particularly if you are fond of French bread (which is significantly different from North European bread). It’s a French guy who opened the shop a few years ago and it is such a success that no matter what time of the day you go, there are queues outside. Also, the best croissants and pain au chocolat in Amsterdam. And even though I am really keen on several other bakeries in this city, I am willing to stand in snow waiting for my sesame seeds covered baguette. It is that good.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
