📍 Jan Evertsenstraat 31, 1057 BM Amsterdam

On weekends, a brief wait at the Fort 9 threshold is a small price for the treats that await you. Once inside, everything unfolds right before your eyes, from oven to display. The smells and friendly service make it nearly impossible to stick to just one bakery delight. Our standout choice? The cheese croissant – a lively twist with a hint of spice, claiming the title of the ultimate favorite!


Pure craftmanship at Ulmus

Right around the corner from Fort 9, you’ll find another hidden gem with fantastic bread, great coffee, and of course, amazing croissants – all without the long queues. Craftsmanship is key at Ulmus Bakerij, using local products sourced exclusively from millers who can trace the origins of the grains. On sunny days, you can comfortably settle on the bakery’s picnic bench. For less favorable weather, there are cozy spots indoors. Bonus: your order is served on exquisite tableware.


Croissants in an interior full of French charm

Niemeijer shines not just for its exceptional croissants but also for its cozy seating spots. This bakery is housed in a historic Amsterdam building where you can sit indoors to savour the full experience. With charming views of baguettes, flour sacks, and delightful baked goods, you’ll feel transported far from the bustling heart of central Amsterdam, where this gem is tucked away. Treat yourself to a petit déjeuner with -of course- the cutest little Niemeijer croissant.

SAINT JEAN - ★★★★★

Amsterdam's vegan cheese croissant champion

📍Lindengracht 158h, 1015 KK Amsterdam

This fancy bakery name holds a lot of promise, and the long queue on weekends adds weight to that promise. But mark our words; once you have a croissant in your hands, you’ve long forgotten about that queue. Saint-Jean is highly aesthetic with a minimalist interior, an inviting mirror by the door, and a showcase full of temptations. And guess what? Everything at Saint-Jean is vegan-proof. Can you taste that it’s vegan? No! Well done, Saint-Jean.

Craving a little something extra? Visit Saint-Jean’s Deli shop across the street and grab yourself a spot.
