Join the expectant queue outside to sample some of the most delicious bread in the Netherlands. This French bakery is incredibly popular, not only for their four different kinds of baguettes (including one covered in poppy seeds). but also for their hazelnut biscuits and regionally sourced honey. Their chausson aux pommes are a delectable reminder of Parisien patisseries. You can even take home a few of the madelaines that so inspired Proust.
