A water mill, very much alive and "kicking". A must see in Maastricht which takes you back in time. Not very much impressed with the over hyped attached bakery and their tarts. I found them rather "run of the mill"!!!

This is a very old mill, dating back the 7th century. It might not be much to see, but it is nice to experience a different type of bakery that in it's backyard has this old beauty. The current name of the mill is linked to the Bishop of Liege to whom the mill belonged in 1099 and since then the name stands with the mill. Go to the backyard and take some great picture with the windmill and then follow the back route and discover the old city of Maastricht!

I wanna make clear that this is not a review, but a warning. I visited this bakery because trip advisor tagged this as gluten free. Because of all the people pretending to have this disease and just for my own sake, I always ask in advance if the products are somehow isolated from the rest. Apparently this bakery is meant for people that for whatever reason avoid gluten, but absolutely NOT for coeliac patients. All the desserts are prepared in the same machines, counters and containers that the regular desserts are prepared, which are ergo covered in wheat flour. Ultimately I can't review the food because I wasn't able to actually eat anything, but if you are in the same situation, avoid this bakery and ignore the gluten free tag! Cheers

I went there with my parents because I thought it would be nice since the place is cute and the pie looks amazing. Once there they were rude, not cleaning the table and ignoring us. Then, we ordered 3 slides. My dad wanted the one with cherry. Surprise for him, it was full of pits. Perfect to break one tooth.

I went here for a breakfast! Amazing what kind of quality bread they make! Not that cheap foam-bread from the supermarket! Next to the cafeteria there is the bakeryshop where you can by bread to take home with you!

This is a very old waterwheel which still functions to grind flour for a real bakery. The mill is only one room with some plaques to describe how the mill works, but I think it is worth visiting if you are in the area. It is free to visit and only takes 5-15 minutes.

Then visit the cafe! They are known for their pie. We tried cherry and it was very good.

This old water wheel is one of the oldest water wheels you will see in the Netherlands and it has a grand history. Attached to a working bakery and eatery, it is well worth a stopover to enjoy some of their fare. The water wheel is in the back courtyard and I discovered it by chance when I took a shortcut through the eatery to the street beyond.

Without our walking tour guide, we would have missed seeing the Bishop's Mill. It's a bakery and cafe located in a historic mill building at Stenenbrug 3, but the attraction, for us, was seeing the waterwheel behind the building. Outside on the small creek (Jeker) the noisy waterwheel lifts water on its paddles to turn the grinding stone machinery inside the mill. The bakery is very proud that they use traditional spelt grain to grind their flour which is used in making their loaves of bread and some sweets. Inside the mill, visitors can watch, through a glass window, how the bakers turn this traditional flour into bread which they sell in their shop and cafe. A plate of bread cubes is available for visitors to have a taste, a good marketing ploy. Outside beside the waterwheel, a bronze plaque briefly explains. in Dutch. the history of the waterwheel since the 11th century and why it was called the Bishop's Mill. This visit was an interesting sidelight between walking from the 2 nearby major attractions - the Helpoort and the Basilica of Our Lady. There is no fee to walk through the mill to see the waterwheel and grinding stone at work.

This cafe is built around a working flour mill complete with water wheel, drives and gears and grinding stones.
The flour is put to great use in the bakery which bakes fresh bread daily and fruit pies to die for. Look in the shop window before you enter the cafe, its jaw dropping.
The cafe serves a GREAT breakfast and snacks during the day.
An ideal place to take and afternoon coffee and pie after walking around this beautiful area of Maastricht
