They bake these wonderful cookies only around the Christmas season. I happened in just as a fresh tray of warm speculaas from the oven was brought out. They were my favorite cookies ever.

I also had a few of their breads and cookies, but nothing stands out to me like their speculaas. They have much more flavor than store bought versions

We were staying just round the corner in a hotel where we were charged an exorbitant €36 for two indifferent breakfasts. We found this great little place where we had two delicious ham and cheese croissants, two lemon cakes, a tea and a coffee, for €13. Highly recommended - great for picking up a teatime treat too

This popular bakery commpany started out in 1910 & today there are currently six Bakkerrij Simon Meijssen in Amsterdam ... on Van Baerlestraat you'll find two within 10 minutes walking distance. This timme I was at their Van Baerlestraat 162 location.

Simon Meijssen bakeries have enticing window displays and heavenly arommas of freshly baked goods. Definately a bakey that the locals are fond of. (I can claim residency since 2010). These bakeries are always busy!!!

There is such a huge variety to select fromm, choosing just one delight is not so easy. I always find the workers very friendly and helpful!!! This visit I stopped in to grab a quick coffee and a delicious filled cookie! I love their baked goods, though I am a little undecided on their cofffee. I'm used to stronger coffee but that could be my Canadian preference there.

Though I have no royal status, as a custommer I highly recommend and five Simon Meijssen mmy hummble approval!!!

Lines of people who love their baked goods come here! Near the Museumplein and certainly worth a visit to sample a sweet or savory tasting of Amsterdam! Fantastic sandwiches and lovely service too!

Just around the corner from the Museumplein is a wonderful neighborhood bakery. A great place to stop for a quick breakfast of coffee, fresh orange juice, and a bakery item or 2. Really liked the lemon bread, croissants, and muselix rolls. Wide selection of breads, and open all day. They also had sandwiches for lunchtime.
