NOVO Bakkerij

This bakery is particularly special because it´s run by people with disabilities. It´s refreshing to see people with disabilities show that they are equally as capable as the next person to work a regular job. They're responsible for everything, from baking delicious desserts to organizing the shop. It´s easy to miss, but if you do find it, don´t dismiss it because of its´ simple exterior and decor. The people there are very friendly and welcoming, the baked goods are delicious, and it´s a great way to get to know the community. Not only delicious, Novo is also enlightening and inspiring!

(The chocolate chip cookies ("chocokoeken" seen above) are to die for! I bought two packages!)

Definitely worth a visit! Enjoy!
