De Bakkerswinkel (The Bakery) on the Torenstraat is located in The Hague’s Hofkwartier (Court Quarter), within walking distance of the Peace Palace and Parliament offices. For those born and bred in The Hague: it is across the street from the ice cream parlour Florencia. In the Toren garage, designed by architect Jan Greve you can now enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or full high tea in a cosy, homely atmosphere. Naturally, you can also have a ‘regular’ cup of coffee, and a scone with lemon curd and fresh cream. It is open daily from 9 o’clock in the morning, including Sundays and Mondays!
There is a lot to see in the Hofkwartier. For those who do not live in The Hague, a day out in The Hague is a ‘definite must’. The Grote Markt, the shopping areas, the Mauritshuis and Parliament Buildings are all within walking distance of each other. Take tram 17 from Central Station and you reach Torenstraat within 10 minutes (stop Noordwal).
Piet Hein Eek
The interior of De Bakkerswinkel was in part designed by Piet Hein Eek and many details from the familiar ‘Bakkerswinkel style’ were added to it. De Bakkerswinkel in The Hague has a 1930’s feel to it. In keeping with the style of the building, all its furniture has been collected from markets and vintage shops by Piet Hekker, the founder of De Bakkerswinkels. All in all, a visit to De Bakkerswinkel in The Hague is certainly worthwhile!
