There are countless bakeries in the city, offering all varieties of breads. The Moroccan bakeries are a particular treat, though Flemish and French bakers are also fantastic. Locals eat a large selection of breads, from whole grain breads, white, brown, baguettes, rolls and much more, as well as making bread themselves at home. Sandwiches are popular, too, and can often be found in bakeries. Prices can range quite significantly from supermarkets, and the different bakeries. The Moroccan bakeries, in particular in the “Marrakesh” area of Brussels near North Station, have good varieties of bread and pastries at great prices and the quality is very good.
