Lagedijk 11a, Zaandijk, Netherlands, 1544 BA

Bakery offering a lot of vegan options like croissants, muffins and savory stuffed breads, especially on Friday and Saturday. Also some traditional Dutch delicacies such as 'gevulde koek'. Vegan options are labelled and the staff is knowledgeable about veganism. Could eat on the little terrace outside the store or take the food to the Zaanse Schans across the river for a picknic. Open Mon-Fri 7:00am-5:00pm, Sat 7:00am-4:00pm.

First Review by Cornelie

Traditional Dutch Delights! - Edit

Located in a touristy and beautiful place just outside Amsterdam, this bakery is a must! Vegans, and everyone, can sample the typical Dutch treats like filled spice cookies, apple tarts, chocolate brownies and more. There's also great coffee. Many non vegan things but the labels are clear.
The two women working were super friendly and spoke great English, plus the prices are fair.
I just wish there was a bigger seating area so I could stay and enjoy the vibe! So many locals were popping in and out all the time, it was great to see the real Netherlands away from the tourist spots.

Pros: Very friendly, Tasty local treats, Traditional bakery atmosphere

Cons: More seating would be nice

Thanks for baking delicious vegan food! - Edit

They keep making more and more stuff vegan. And I like that they now have a site where you can order, so it is accessible for anyone (I am privileged to live nearby the bakery).

I am in love with the chocolate muffins and the cheese-pesto croissants. Never had anything vegan that tasted like the "original" so good. Everything is nice and moist.

I really wish the bakery and the owners all the luck in the world, as they deserve it. Keep up the good work

Pros: Vegan , Perfect taste, Order online

Best vegan bakery - Edit

I love this place. They have so many delicious vegan things. They also recently opened a webshop: www.veganbakery.nl. If you come to the shop, I recommend ordering ahead or coming early if it's the weekend, otherwise you will be disappointed because the vegan items are very popular!

Pros: So many delicious options, Ordering online is possible

Traditional Dutch bakery goes vegan! - Edit

Lovely little bakery with a rapidly expanding vegan corner. From 'pain au chocolat', cheese onionbread, muffins, (cheese)croissants to white buns: the bakery is making more and more vegan versions tasting just as good or even better :-)

It's definitely worth the short drive or trainride from for instance Amsterdam.

Ask the staff for their vegan options because they often have other (frozen) products in the back.

Pros: Vegan products are clearly marked with a 'V+' in g

The Best Vegan Bakery - Edit

I love het Zaanse Bakkertje.
They are making more and more vegan bread, muffins, croissants, pizzas and so many other delicious goodies.

The staff is really informed and enthusiastic, which is awesome.

This is the only bakery I know that sells all vegan food. And trust me on this, it is soooo good!


Pros: Delicious food, Only vegan bakery in the neighbourhood, Best service

Delicious vegan treats! - Edit

Finally a bakery that understands that bread and other treats should come cruelty-free. Please try the "gevulde koeken", they are the best! It is still in process, so I hope that in the near future all the vegan stuff will be in the showcase instead of in the freezer and that the prices will be a bit more profitable to travel for.

Pros: Optional vegan

Cons: Expensive

This place makes me very happy - Edit

This bakery has only just started making vegan stuff and it is already a regular stop on our grocery trips. Everything is delicious and the staff is very kind. Reasonably priced too.

If you are staying in Amsterdam and want to visit the windmills on the Zaanse Schans this is the perfect place to stop by on your walk over from the Koog-Zaandijk train station and get some goodies for a nice picknick.

Pros: Delicious baked goods, Helpful staff, Near the Zaanse Schans

Cons: None
