Haunts of Utrecht: De Bakkerswinkel

On yet another snowy day in Utrecht, I headed over to De Bakkerswinkel to sample their much talked about baked goods and to sit in a warm place far from the falling snow. The snow had long ago lost its novelty as biking through it is stressful (as mentioned here and here) and since I didn’t want to remain cooped up in my house I thought it was time to visit a spot that so many people told me had amazing pastries, coffee, and tea. I am glad I ventured out even if snow crystals kept flying in my eye nearly blinding me on the cycle to the establishment. So, what did of I think of the place?

If you want tasty bakery items and a cozy atmosphere, then head to De Bakkerswinkel in the centre of Utrecht. Their scones are amazing and come with both homemade jam and clotted cream. It’s a little bit of England right in Utrecht. While you can get takeaway items from the counter on the main floor, the cozier area is down the stairs in the 3 vaults that overlook the canal. There you can sit with a pot of tea and enjoy any of the numerous baked items this gem has on the menu.
