The Hague 2. The bakery on Miss Ida Street

Besides the Royal Palace (The Hague is the capital of the governement and the seat of the Royal House) is the 'court quarter' (hofkwartier) located. This is a nostalgic area with lots of small streets, little shops and small restaurants, for a tourist it makes a great walk.
This shot is of the bakery at 'Miss Ida Street' (Jufrouw Ida Straat). They have got great bread and pastries. I bought a 'coffee bun' when I passed by. It is a bakery for the well to do, because I paid more than usual.

And a glance inside, notice they have a picture of the Crown prince and princess on the wall.

This looks like a wonderful little shop. I could use some warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven bread right now!
