Are you looking for yummy treats? Since I arrived in this country more than one year ago, I have been looking for bakeries and pastry shops in Rotterdam. I discovered a couple of great places that offer delicious breads, cakes and pastries. I decided to share my favourite addresses with you.
Below you can find my top 8 of bakeries and pastry shops of Rotterdam. Enjoy!
1. Le Petit Jean
Le Petit Jean is a new pastry shop in Rotterdam Noord, located in a nice street along the Hofbogen. This lovely place is offering classic French pastries as éclairs or Paris-Brest for instance. Classic but made with an original touch.
Le Petit Jean is born from the initiative of a former restaurant sous-chef who decided to open its own pastry shop. All pastries are made by himself. I definitely recommend you to go to Le Petit Jean to taste their pastries!
You can also grab a coffee, to-go for now. Once it will be possible, you can enjoy it with one of their delicious pastry on-site and enjoy their cozy interior.
Zomerhofstraat 75, 3032 CK Rotterdam
2. Urban Bakery
Also located in Rotterdam Noord in the Hofbogen, Urban Bakery is a charming bakery store. It offers awesome pastries. You will also find freshly baked, artisanal cakes and breads. For instance, you will have the opportunity to enjoy cupcakes, muffins and many more treats.
Urban Bakery specialises in pastries. However, you will also find bread from Vlaamsch Broodhuys.
You can visit them in their shop or order their cakes and pastries online on their website.
Voorburgstraat 217-219, 3037 ER Rotterdam
Koekela is one of my favourite pastry shops in Rotterdam. It is an American-style bakery located in the city centre of Rotterdam. They offer a great choice of pastries, so you will definitely find something delicious there. All pastries are freshly baked and without artificial additives.
In ordinary times, it is also possible to join them in their café to enjoy a break with a coffee and a slice of cake for instance. I can’t wait to experience this again!
Be ready to queue for a little bit when going over there on Saturdays. But I can assure you that it worth it, you will not be disappointed.

4. Dudok Patisserie
You certainly already know the iconic restaurant of Rotterdam, Dudok. Did you know that Dudok also has its own pastry shop? The Dudok Patisserie! It is located near the Dudok restaurant in the city centre. You will find their famous apple tart, and many other tasty cakes and pastries, but also salty quiche.
Dudok Patisserie is open every day, but you can also order online on their website. There you can also order their High Tea box and Do It Yourself box.

Lof der Zoetheid is another great bakery and lunchroom in Rotterdam. There are multiple good reasons to visit Lof der Zoetheid. They are located in one of the coolest places of Rotterdam: Noordplein. The interior is really lovely and most importantly, they offer excellent cakes with an original taste as the Coconut Chai Latte Cake for instance.
They also offer high tea, that you can currently get for take away. The high tea consists of organic sandwiches, scones, bonbons, savoury and sweet cake.

Jan Bussing is a bakery in the city centre of Rotterdam. In their store, you will find a great inspiration from French bakeries. They have a valuable savoir-faire as they have been baking for four generations now. In fact, the bakery Jan Bussing exists since 1899. Therefore, they offer qualitative and tasty breads, as well as French viennoiseries, like croissants and pain aux raisins.
I also recommend you to taste their cakes, they are truly delicious. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!

Would you like vegan cakes? That is also possible in Rotterdam. For instance, there is the cheerful Happy Food and Health. When you step inside it seems like you have ended up in the jungle because of the many plants and the jungle wallpaper.
Just a handful of the sweets they offer: Naked carrot cake, Chunky Monkey and the Mars Nice cake. All gluten-free and 100% vegan!
