Jordy’s Bakery | Vlietlaan Madness
Jordy’s Bakery Vlietlaan is the third branch that opened begin summer 2017. Where the other two locations are only a lunchroom, this branch also has a restaurant where they serve sourdough crust pizzas after five o’clock. That means, after work pizza party!
Jordy’s Klootwijk learned to love the bakery trade as a young boy. His grandpa was head of the well-known bakery chain Klootwijk. No wonders that he has his bakery now, where he bakes fresh sourdough bread every day. He learned his trade at the famous French Culinary Institute in America. Where his teacher gave him a batch of starter dough, ‘Keep it alive’ they told him. He did, until this day this same starter-dough is what they use to bake the bread.In contrast to the cozy branch in the city center, this place is much bigger and brighter with large windows to let in some natural daylight. Also, more seats to choose from when you want to set up your mobile office! Divided into two sections, you can either take a seat in the lunchroom, or you can hide in the restaurant. We prefer the lunchroom part, on the first floor, with view on the counter with all the goodies. If this sight makes you hungry, don’t worry. They have an extended menu with salads, soups, and small tasting menus. Of course also the famous sandwiches. You might want to avoid lunchtime here; it can get crowded (people got to eat!) but other than that, this place got our approval. The tables are big enough for two people with laptop and to fit an epic lunch. There are enough power sockets to feed your mobile office and strong coffee to get you going. Moreover, if you want to take your laptop outside, it is not a problem. Even if you are sitting on the terrace, the WIFI will reach you. We already mentioned but from 1700 till 2100 the kitchen is open for pizza. Just like the bread, Jordy’s Bakery makes the pizza crust with sourdough. There are not too many options, but less is always more. We took a peek at the menu, and four kinds of cheese pizza sound great (we just like cheese a lot). We will be coming back for an after work pizza and beer from local brewery Brouwerij Noord. Feel free to join us 🙂
