Explore the store: Jordy’s Bakery, Rotterdam

Lately, a certain name started to pop up in more and more restaurants and lunchrooms in Rotterdam: ‘Jordy’s Bakery’. Many lunches in town are suddenly served on bread from this bakery. I think I have tasted this bread in four different occasions already, but never from the original source yet. So today I ventured to the Nieuwe Binnenweg in Rotterdam to see for myself what this bakery is all about.

Jordy’s Bakery is run by, of course, Jordy, who is the grandson of a well known baker, Klootwijk in Rotterdam as well. After studying in the United States he started his own bakery where they bake bread with pure ingredients and all in the traditional way. Jordy’s is especially well known for their sourdough bread.

Restaurant / Store: Vlaamsch Broodhuys

Today I had a tiny breakfast problem: I ran out of oatmeal! Instead of only having some fruit, I decided to go out for breakfast once. After a bit of research, I found this place called: ‘Vlaamsch Broodhuys’, a bakery that has a kind of lunchroom inside as well. They have two locations in Rotterdam: one at the Meent and one at the Nieuwe  Binnenweg, the one I went to (because I could combine it with a visit to Koekela ). There are also locations in other cities, so check their website to see if there is one near you.

Explore the store: Ten to Three Bakery, Rotterdam

Ten to Three Bakery RotterdamIn the centre of Rotterdam, hidden underneath the Bijenkorf, lies a small, but magical cupcake store, called Ten to Three Bakery. They also have another location in Rotterdam and one in Delft (where I work, yay!), but the one in de Aert van Nesstraat also has a small tearoom where you can also have a cupcake break with your friends while you are shopping. Ten to Three Bakery has a large variety of cupcakes, ranging form classics (for example vanilla, chocolate, lemon), to speciality (salted caramel, cookies and cream, strawberry cheesecake) and a limited edition that changes every few weeks. They sell all the flavors in normal and mini sized cupcakes. It’s nice to know that they sell sugarfree, glutenfree and vegan cupcakes as well! Besides the cupcakes, you can get macarons, brownies, muffins and scones. All the sweets look super cute, with customised designs for each specific cupcake.

Explore the store: Koekela, Rotterdam

Koekela1408346188854I already heard so much from friends and family about Koekela, but I never actually visited the store, even though it is in my hometown Rotterdam. I heard they have the best homemade cakes, cookies, brownies and muffins, so I decided to go check it out and try some things. Koekela is really easy to get to by the Rotterdam subway, just get out at ‘Eendrachtsplein’ and the it’s not even a 5 minute walk to the Nieuwe Binnenweg number 79a.
