“Very good bread, great sandwiches and pies”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

A lovely place to have lunch with one of the best slices of bread in town or a nice coffee and pie. Also a great terrace to whatch the hustle and bustle of one of the best shopping streets of Rotterdam, the Meent.

“Excellent brod!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great bread and friendly staff! I stopped in just after they'd closed, but they let me buy some bread anyway. As I understand they don't accept cash, though that possibly could be because I arrived after closing time. I paid with my Visa card from the US, which doesn't have the special chip and does not work at many Europe businesses.

“Dimitri's sandwich: a great job!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

A very nice bakery-cum-coffee shop where you can get excellent sandwiches. The bread is delicious; once a week, I make a significant detour to get my share. The coffee is good and the service polite and very friendly. Note that no cash payments (only debit and credit cards) are accepted at the Meent shop, which is one of 10-20 outlets that "Vlaamsch Broodhuys" now has operational.

“First Rate Breakfast”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went to Vlaamsch Broodhuys in Rotterdam for breakfast in January 2013 after disappointing hotel breakfast. It was excellent. Tried the breakfast platter with numerous types of delicious bread and different spreads with piping hot coffee and it was first class as was the service. I am back in Rotterdam in April and already plan to have breakfast everyday with my family. Well done keep it up.

“Don't recommend eating in, just buy the bread and go.”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Lively place but wait ages for services. Waitress do not know what is availabe and you need to go and see the cakes and tarts selection ersonally.
I waited 20 mins to order and 20 mins for my muffin, no apology for the long wait. I also have to remind them that i am waiting several times.
I would recommend to buy the bread and et it in a park or home. Great selection and crusty bread! Recommend it as a bakery rather than a cafe. Btw, its a chain...
