Bakker Jaap

For those unfamiliar with Dutch cuisine, this bakery is typical of many small bakeries around the Netherlands, with inexpensive prepared food and great bread.

Bakker Jaap

Food
Bakker Jaap is predominantly a bakery. It’s not uncommon to watching a middle aged Dutch person buying half a dozen loaves of freshly baked bread. However, they do offer a variety of ready-to-eat foods ranging from sandwiches to small pizzas and, of course, all of those typical Dutch food staples. It’s a typically Dutch establishment and there’s a similar, though not quite as good, chain version called Bakker Bart.

Their speciality are saucijzenbroodjes (sausage sandwiches) which are flavored minced meat sausages wrapped in a type of puff pastry. Their more traditional sandwiches are also tasty and are available made-to-order or you can take one of their pre-made options. They also have an array of sweet treats, of which the appelflap (apple turnover) is an excellent choice.

Ambiance
As the store mostly serves as a bakery, there isn’t much in the way of seating. Most people get their sandwiches to go. There are a few tables for eating in, but don’t try to do so during the lunch rush. It gets very crowded.

Service
The employees are always friendly, though their teenage staff may sometimes struggle with English. Be warned, the Dutch aren’t known for their queuing skills and you may be forced to elbow your way to the front to get served.

Extras
They do serve coffee and tea, though it’s not clearly advertised.

Price
Sandwiches range from €3 – €6 euros and snacks from €1.50 to €3.
