As Belgium is right around the corner, Breda is full of it as well: the brown gold. Shops selling handmade pralines, chocolate fondues, chocolate truffles… Who wouldn’t get excited by that? Here are a few places you don’t want to miss out on.
Absolutely delicious and packed in a lovely pink box: the homemade pralines at La Bohème. These fabulous treats are famous even outside of Breda. Housed in a monumental building, this place is definitely worth a visit.
Smits Ambachtelijke Chocolaterie
Smits’ mouth watering chocolate truffles are well-known amongst Breda’s locals. Truffles are their specialty but Smits’ pastry chefs are also creating seasonal chocolate all year round, like special pralines for Mother’s day, orange and red, white and blue ones for King’s day or summery chocolate flowers.
Banketbakkerij en Tearoom Van Haaren
This traditional tearoom is integral to Breda. This list couldn’t lack its famous, homemade pralines. The delicious cakes are wonderful as well.
Olala Chocola organizes some seriously amazing workshops where you’ll learn how to use chocolate to make your own pralines. Don’t feel like doing the work yourself? All the goodies are also for sale in the shop.
Nieuwe Ginnekenstraat 2
We Love Chocolate
Every week, We Love Chocolate, brings a different type of Belgian chocolate to Breda. So definitely come back more than once to discover something new. This welcoming place always lets you try something when you come in. Just how we like it!
Lange Brugstraat 18
Lin’s Lounge & Chocolat bar
The dream of owner Linda came true in 2017 when she opened Lin’s Lounge & Chocolat bar in Breda, a specialised shop selling Leonidas chocolate. This place doesn’t just sell chocolate… Have a seat and try some delicious ‘Bacchi’ coffee or ‘Ro Tea’.
Chocolate Company Café Breda
Strawberries and other fruit, dipped into a chocolate fondue. It’s every chocoholic’s dream! It’s one of the things they sell at the Chocolate Company Café, situated on the corner of the Ginnekenstraat and the cozy Van Coothplein. Apart from chocolate, this place is also good for a nice breakfast or lunch.
