Circular Bakery – LAB – Cafe

Bakery Cafe
We serve coffee and homemade food in our artisan bakery. You can buy – sourdough – bread in our store, which is baked in stone hearth ovens. We also  sell a variety of (organic and local) baking ingredients in our store.  We have grown into an inspiring Bakkers Lab, run by young people with a social mission. Read more about our story in the media.

Circular bakery 
We serve vegetarian food and we are vegan friendly. During workshops we demonstrate how old bread can be recycled as an ingredient to improve a new batch of breads and help prevent food waste. Our method of making bread was selected as a best practice by the Dutch Platform for Circular Economy.  We innovate and develop recipes by harnessing the potential of fruit and vegetable fibers, derived from residual flows.

Read more about our social mission, purpose economy and what we have achieved the last years.

School for circular entrepreneurship
In addition to learning the craft of bread making, our team also learns more about circular entrepreneurship. Our team learns how to manage a circular bakery and creatively reduce food waste. Such social entrepreneurship is meaningful and instructive, but also a challenge. We help our colleagues who may soon want to engage in their own social entrepreneurship to explore this challenge and learn the craft. At the beginning of 2024, we started formalizing these activities in the school for circular entrepreneurship. If you would like to know more, or need advice to prepare your company for a more circular future, please feel free to contact us: hallo@bakinglab.nl

LAB & Workshops & Social mission
We work with our hands, learn and explore relations between our past (artisan) and our future (modern science). We explain the underlying science of – bread  – baking during our bread classes and teambuilding activities and provide a variety of other informal education programs in the field of nutrition, health and society. 

Certified training company
We are a certified training company (SBB, nr  25464). Our venue on the Linnaeusstraat in Amsterdam Oost is well connected via public transport and it’s only a few minutes walk from the Muiderpoort train station.

Baking Lab Amsterdam opened its doors for the public in March 2017. So far we learned that at the cash desk one can exchange so much more than just money.

Sourdough rewilding map, 

Our social contribution is expressed in many different ways, among them is the sharing of our sourdough starter, which we gave away to the community since the start of our bakery. During the corona pandemic many more people came over to collect our wild leaving culture to bake at home. Recipients of our sourdough are now requested to share their location so we can visualise its distribution. Read more…
