Gebroeders Niemeijer – French finesse

Naturellement, the French know their bread. The bad news: we can’t be in France all year, and here we’re talking Amsterdam. The good news: Gebroeders Niemeijer – a cute, original French bakery situated in one of the most gruesome streets in town, which serves warming croissants, bread and brioches nonetheless.

To keep it simple, when visiting Gebroeders Niemeijer, I live by one rule: get croissants. They serve a physical form of heaven baked into a small, firm piece of goodness. For the rest, feel free to have a coffee – the staff’s super friendly – or something from their straightforward breakfast/lunch menu. It’s honest, good food, suiting every occasion. Need some vitamins? I’d go for the spinach-ginger-pear-mint-lemon-orange juice. It’s a sweet and sour veggie winner.

Keep in mind: Gebroeders Niemeijer is a popular place. If you want to have some solid croissant-certainty, go early. Late anyway? All the alternatives – for instance small brioches or wonderful scones – normally make me happy too. Their key to success? Everyone at Gebroeders Niemeijer simply loves bread.
