Baker Jager was once proclaimed shop of the year in the Westerkwartier, for obvious reasons. They sell the most delicious bread and are locally known for their poffert – a Groningen speciality. Poffert is a ring-shaped bread-like delicacy prepared with a bain-marie. It’s served with sugar and melted butter. Come in for that break from your bicycle ride and enjoy a drink and yummy treat.
