Looking for a pleasant coffee shop is often one of the first things we do when we reach a new town. In Gouda, as we'd just come from the overnight ferry to the Netherlands, we also really wanted some breakfast. Walking from the train station into the town centre, we came across Bakkerij Bart and were drawn inside by the extensive displays of fresh cakes and pastries. Apple turnover for breakfast? I don't mind if I do.
It was unfortunate, given the open sides of the cafe, that major building work across the street was generating copious volumes of both noise and dust. For their sake, I hope it's short-lived, because other than the disturbance, this was a lovely place.
