It’s a popular place not least due to their outrageously instagrammable shakes and doughnuts but there’s also a great selection of healthier food on the menu and a lovely atmosphere. With just a handful of tables inside and an inviting bench out front, the cosy seats complete with blankets, cushions and sheepskins are at a premium.
This intimate spot with friendly staff offers a slice of local life that’s hard to resist and will make you wish that this was your local corner. Get there early for breakfast or linger for brunch and lunch.
A second branch of Corner Bakery opened last year out by the World Fashion Centre to the West. It’s not a particularly lovely part of town, and its very untouristy but we absolutely LOVED the larger branch when we visited it and if by any remote chance you’re in the area, do go there. Its even worth a special trip.
The cafe is much larger than the Old South branch and it was busy on a rainy Sunday morning despite the streets around it being quiet. Food-wise expect more of the same fabulous looking and even better tasting plates. Each one brought out from the kitchen gave us greater food envy than the one before. They also offer incredible cakes courtesy of Life of Pie and the best Unicorn Shake in town. This place is wonderful, we absolutely love it.
Oh my, they got the message and Corner Bakery is expanding further! A brand new branch will open soon on Jan Peter Heijestraat which is in the West, close to Foodhallen.
And as if that wasn’t enough, there’ll also be the first branch outside Amsterdam opening in Maastricht.
I’m pretty sure, knowing these guys, each venue will be a little unique and never succumb to over-expansion or a chain-like feel. Check this place out. I’ll be heading to the new branch in the West just as soon as they open their doors.
