Loved the soy cappuccino. A cozy place and sweet girls working there. We were offered a chocolate compliment the second day we came. It was not crowded, was easy to find the best place. The prices are cheaper than in Paris :)

It's not your usual big-breakfast establishment, but the Dutch breakfast tasting plates and a whole variety of baked goods, plus rather decent coffee for the Netherlands, make it worth visiting again and again. Terrace out the back is great on a sunny day, otherwise you're inside with one or two cats who patrol the area much to the amusement of... More

My friend promised to take me to the best bakery/pastry shop in the city and this was it. I was not disappointed; my cheesecake was great; James had the scones which I also tasted and enjoyed. Definitely a place to stop during a walkabout. We didn't stay for lunch but the menu looked intriguing as well.

Old style bakery with wonderful homemade cakes and coffee. Their apple cake or citrus tart highly recommended. Breakfasts and snacks and sandwiches also served. Plenty of tables inside and a tiny area outside for the summer. Friendly service

Love this place. It is located by the big church, just on the edge of the city centre. They serve homemade cakes and bread and have an excellent high tea. The are picknick tables outside, at the back of the building. Great place for breakfast / lunch / tea.

Great breakfast, great cappuccino (even got the approval of my Italian girl friend), great cake and great traditional breads. Although it's certainly not a traditional bakery, the few types of bread they do sell are excellent. Highly recommended for your lazy Sunday mornings. Or lazy any morning.

Description
De Bakkerswinkel (The Bakery) on the Torenstraat is located in The Hague's Hofkwartier (Court Quarter), within walking distance of the Peace Palace and Parliament offices. For those born and bred in The Hague: it is across the street from the ice cream parlour Florencia. In the Toren garage, designed by architect Jan Greve you can now enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or full high tea in a cosy, homely atmosphere. Naturally, you can also have a 'regular' cup of coffee, and a scone with lemon curd and fresh cream. It is open daily from 9 o'clock in the morning, including Sundays and Mondays!
