Dudok Patisserie is a good spot for a Cake and breakfast.
It’s on my way to work, so a nice place to stop for reading the newspaper and having a good coffee in the morning. Located in a typical 50s style architecture building with a simple interior of wood and metal.
Dudok got its name from the architect of their first building at Meent 88 – the second Grand Cafe in Rotterdam – that opened in 1999. The start of what we now know as the Dudok concern – famous for their Dudok apple pie and Dudok cakes!
Dudok Patisserie is located in a side street of Meent 88, next to Janssen en Van Dijk wine bar.
I am not a real fan of their apple cake (my favorite is the one at Koekela (check the article) but as they offer more than 10 different cakes, there is enough choice here to make you happy. Red Velvet cake is what I order as it’s the best in town.
They also sell brownies, muffins, cupcakes, quiches and sourdough bread.
Eat in or to-go, which is great if you like to picnic in the park at Grotekerkplein, just around the corner in front of Laurens Church.
You can order special cakes, like wedding cake or chocolate for special occasions, although they don’t want to compete with Bontekoe – one of the best chocolate shops just 100 metres away at Delftsevaart 26, where you can also drink coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
More coffee & tea options nearby is at number 80 –the Tea Lab.
