To Netherlands Bagels

Cafe & Bakery in the Hague

Freshly baked New York-style bagels made in the Hague at Korte Molenstraat 11A. Our cafe is open for dine-in and takeaway. We have a separate webshop for frozen bagel orders although we have paused shipments due to our courier stopping his services. We will notify you if anything changes! 

Our cafe hours are kept current on Google. We offer sandwiches, cold drinks, coffee, desserts, and orange juice, but we also do takeaway for those in the Hague. We do not offer gluten-free bagels.

To order sandwiches or a small number of loose bagels for pick-up, you can come into our cafe without reserving ahead.

If you would like to order a few sandwiches for takeaway ahead, challah, or make a specific order you can call/Whatsapp the order during our opening hours. We cannot always check/pick up in the middle of a busy service.

For larger orders of loose bagels (12+), you need to pre-order. 

We bake fresh challah every Friday morning. Challah is by default 400 grams, but you can preorder challah rolls or larger challahs by contacting us on Whatsapp by Wednesday evening. We are not kosher-certified.

A reservation is not needed to eat in the cafe *as long as we have room, but we encourage reservations for groups of 6+. We have a capacity of 36 seats inside with a terrace. You can make a reservation via Google Maps

What makes Us Different?

native New Yorker Owned

Owner Karen is a born-and-raised New Yorker. We aim to replicate the New York bagel experience here in the Netherlands from flavor to service.

100% natural ingredients

Nothing, but what you would expect. We believe strongly that a good bagel does not need extras to taste good. Our bagels have no food modifiers or preservatives. They are fresh boiled and baked as you would in NYC.

100% halal

All of our bagels are produced without dairy or meat byproducts. At the cafe, all of our meat is 100% halal. We are in the process of getting kosher certified for supervised bakes on Friday mornings for challot*

Paused Temporarily: Frozen deliveries in the Netherlands

Separately from our cafe, we deliver pre-sliced and frozen bagels throughout the Netherlands to B2B clients as well as private clients. You can order via our website. These orders are strictly frozen, but we do offer fresh delivery of catering orders over a certain amount in the Hague.

Our Specializations

hand-rolled bagels baked daily


All of our bagels are proofed overnight before being hand-rolled by our expert bagel makers then being boiled and baked.  A New York-style bagel in particular is known for its fluffy interior and chewy exterior. You can toast it, but we highly recommend trying our bagels by themselves as they are a totally different experience than what you typically find in the Netherlands! 

We tend to vary how many of each variety we make depending on the day, but we aim to have at least 6 varieties each morning.


We bake fresh challah every Friday morning. Challah is available in a small size (~400 grams) by default, but you can preorder challah rolls or larger challahs by contacting us on Whatsapp by Wednesday evening. We are not kosher-certified.

Specialty Coffee

Since we began the cafe, we have proudly worked with Manhattan Coffee Roasters in Rotterdam. Started by Esther Maasdam and Ben Morrow, Manhattan Coffee Roasters offers high-quality sustainably sourced coffees that feature surprising profiles and lighter roasts.  

It was kismet from the first moment that Karen tried Manhattan’s coffee at a nearby cafe–and became obsessed with their Brooklyn blend. This is what we serve at the cafe although you can ask about our specialty coffee of the month. 

We serve both filter coffee (with refill) as well as standard coffee drinks such as lattes with dairy-free alternatives available.
