Bakery De Castro: A lust for the eye and for the tummy!
In Mortsel we are happy to dispose of several bakeries.
The one nearest to our place is called De Castro. It is one of the shops of De Castro.
You have a choice of many fresh baked breads, white, brown, with different ingredients.
What to buy: On Sunday morning we are all queueing for little sandwiches which we call "pistolets".
It must sound funny for the French as a pistolet is a small revolver `-)
The pistolets come in all kinds and I think there are at least 10 in total of these little breads you can chose from.
Another not to miss to buy are the great pasteries.
Well just click on the picture en really enjoy this mouthwatering picture :-)

Like all the bakeries in belgium this shop is open on a sunday, when all the other shops are closed. It is very nice to get some fresh bread on sunday.

BioBakker (biological bakery): local small shops are still the most fun to buy
In the Pieter Reypenslei, side street of the Statielei, you will find some nice small shops.
On the Statielei those shops are often disappearing making place for those terrible chain shops like Casa, Blokker, M&S, name them, you find them in any city!
What to buy: This bakery makes his bread on an ecological and organic way.
They have different kinds of breads.
