the oliebollenbakkerij is the place to go for your dutch doughnuts!
Yes, how nice! From this Friday, December 16th, there’s a pop-up for Dutch doughnuts on the Beukenplein: the Oliebollenbakkerij. That means that we can get fresh homemade oliebollen, Dutch doughnuts, and apple beignets every day, mmmm!
The Oliebollenbakkerij is an idea of The Bakkerszonen: Johan Hartog and Martijn Meijer. They opened their very own bakery in Amsterdam-North just a couple of weeks ago. At this bakery, everything is artisan baked and you can go there for breakfast of lunch. There’s also a bakery café, where you can sit and watch the bakers to their magic.
Per toeval konden De Bakkerszonen een pand huren aan het Beukenplein, daar waar eerst vishandelaar Molenaar zat. Tot en met het eind van het jaar zal hier de Oliebakkerij zitten en vanaf januari zal dit verder gaan als bakkerswinkel met oud Hollands brood, desembrood, banket, belegde broodjes en goede koffie.
By coincidence the Bakkerszonen could rent a building at the Beukenplein, the one you may now of fish shop Molenaar. Until the end of the year they will bake Dutch doughnuts at The Oliebollenbakkerij and from January they will contiue as bakery with traditional Dutch bread, sourdough bread, pastries, sandwiches and good coffee. Visit their facebook-page for preview.
The address of the Oliebollenbakkerij is Beukenplein 8.
