Bagels & Beans

Bagel and Beans

Another one of my favourites here in Holland is Bagels & Beans, a Dutch cafe chain that serves – surprise – coffee and bagels!  I nearly wet my pants when I first saw this place because, as most of my friends know, I have a love of bagels which borders on addiction.

Thankfully, there are 44 locations throughout Holland, of which I am a regular patron. It’s not quite a New York City bagel (I think these ones are only baked and not boiled), but by European standards they are pretty good. Finally I can satisfy my bagel cravings…


About Home Strange Home

I first left the US in 1999, when I was 18 years old. Since then, I’ve spent 13 years living abroad - 3 in Canada, 7 in Europe, and 3 in Africa. Now I've finally returned to the US on a one-way plane ticket. I arrived home in late January 2014 and set foot in the US for the first time in nearly 2.5 years. In Home Strange Home, I blog about the ups and downs of my re-acculturation experience.
