I've been to this lovely bakery&cafe several times with friends. It's a nice place to have a coffee or lunch. The cake and bread are fresh and tasty.

Lunch here was very nice. The queue in the bakery was continous, obviously popular with locals. We ordered hot drinks and a warm black olive foccacia pizza, divine. My wife ordered a raspberry and mousse cake. Apparently, Mmmmmmm describes it. The staff are welcoming and all smartly dressed in black skirts and white blouses, which adds an upmarket ethos. The...

We arrived a little before closing time and decided to take the cakes we chose back to our accomodation to enjoy. Very nice and thoroughly enjoyable with a nice warm cup of tea. It is also possible to sit down and eat and drink inside.

The best pastries, cakes in Utrecht. Also the bread freshly baked is fantastic. If you need a special cake for an event Bond and Smolders offers a world of opportunities. From the start I am a fan.

The place to be if your are looking for internation confectionary in Utrecht... for now classic but best... Dutch breadculture too, and second best: you can enjoy a coffee and cake... love the servants, but the design is outdated... would love to style the place

We visited this place for breakfast. We ordered sandwiches, hot drinks and pastry. Everything was delicious, I especially liked the caprese sandwich and their rooibos tea. The staff is very friendly. You can also buy bread and cakes to take-away.

Situated in a lovely lane, surrounded by more nice shops and views of the canal. Perfect place to rest your feet and a good choice of cakes and pastries from the sickly sweet to a generous helping of fruity Apple cake. Yum!

You go to Bond and Smulders for their bread. Beautiful and crisp sourdough bread is their trademark. You also go there for pastry and cakes. Very refined, very tasty. You can get them in family format, but also as a small treat with your coffee or tea in the tea room they operate. Nice place in a nice corner of... More
