Dutch broodjes, World of Wonders en Apparel

‘t Kuyltje – Dutch broodjes in Gasthuismolensteeg

The wonderful and deeply filling world of Dutch broodjes (sandwiches) has its greatest champion in this takeaway, one of very few that still features proper homemade meat (roast beef!) and fish salads in their buns, as opposed to the hugely unappealing factory-prepared product that’s taken over the sandwich market. An awesome lunch every time at ‘t Kuyltje at Gasthuismolensteeg 9.

Sas Design – World of Wonders in Gasthuismolensteeg

Inspired by her passion for travel, Dutch designer Saskia Schellen crafts her exclusive jewellery by fusing influences from across the globe. Her inspiration comes from far and wide. Take earrings inspired by treasures of ancient Afghanistan. Available in a variety of gemstones, icluding amethyst, smoky topaz, jade and garnet, they come either gold plated or with silver borders. And all individually handmade. Go and see in Gasthuismolensteeg 1.
