“Stunning cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

This is a must see. There is a wide choice of cakes and at the back of the shop some filled rolls for takeaway

“You'll wish you had eaten one more...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Stopped at the inconspicuous little Broodbakker Simon Meijssen (Nieuwe Vijzelstraat 5) on the way to the Rijksmuseum for a quick breakfast of the most amazing ham and gouda croissants, and sat to eat them in the Weteringplantsoen, contemplating whether to walk back and get a few more.

As I write this review, I really wish that I had...

“Yummiest goodies to try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon this bakery by chance. Glad we did else we wouldn't have tasted the delicious treats! The coconut macaroons were divine.

“Why is this ordinary baker a tourist attraction?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Probably it is the combination of the strategic location, the welcoming atmosphere, the open and light shop and the large selection of Bread varieties that accounts for the popularity of this bakkerij (one r). But otherwise it is a baker like there are many in Amsterdam, and even better ones. To name Vlaamsch Broodhuys on Constantijn Huygensstraat, Rud Veenekamp on Ferdinand Bolstraat, Paul Annee in the '9 streets', and many more. Simon Meijssen is a chainstore, like is Van Muyden, all just bakers with delicious breaks, croissants, wholeweat, often also organic. Enjoy it when in Holland. the Dutch have two bread meals a day, so they have to be choosy on Bread.

“Van Baerlestraat 162 location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Coffee, kaasuiebroodjie (roll with cheese and onion on top) and walnut tart. Good coffee, fresh bread, excellent tart and a place to eat while admiring the wonderful art nouveau tiling before heading onto Museumplein - friendly staff
