“Bakery company with 'Royal approval' distinction!!! (van baerlestraat 162)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

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!!!

“Where the locals go! A Tourist treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

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!

“Wonderful Neighborhood Bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

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.
