This place sells without doubt the best baguettes you can buy in NL. If you need bread or simple pastry, this is the pace to be.

Just bread, no seats no drinks. Why is this Shop on tripadvisor? It is NOT a restaurant, you only can buy bread here. !!! And closes around 6:00 p.m

This is a great little French bakery. The bread is fantastic and the tarts are to die for (especially the lemon). Is quite expensive, but you get what you pay for. Also beware on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings there can be long lines. The line moves quickly but no one likes queues!

Fantastic bread, croissants and pastries. This is the bakery to go to! Perhaps it's even better if you visit the cheese monger next door and buy some cheese to eat with the bread.

10 min walk from the WTC is Le fournil de Sebastien,an authentic French bakery. I am originally from France so I am always on the lookout for French bread and viennoiseries.

Nice French bakery, with pastry that's difficult to find in Holland. Prices are a bit expensive but quality for most of the products is great. Pain au chocolat used to be better, but tarts are still great.

Great bread, really wonderful bread store. I can't say that they are expensive especially for the quality you get it's good. Their bread goes so well with the cheese from the L'amuse store.

A bit overpriced but the best French bakery in Amsterdam by miles. I enjoy the sandwiches too. Very disappointing that they are not open on Sunday when it would be most useful.

They have the best french baguettes and madeleines. The're quite long lines though on saturday and sunday mornings but it's definitely worth it, the food quality is amazing. Best breakfast I around.
