Shopping in Breda
Sint Annastraat is a charming shopping street full of artisan’s shops in little old buildings. Our favorites here are INGAR (Sint Annastraat 21), a fair fashion shop with handmade accessories and affordable art, and the handbag shop (Sint Annastraat 9) run by Mirjam Zwolsman. She creates unique leather bags and her workshop is in the shop.
Wilhelminastraat and het Ginneken
Het Ginneken is one of the most pleasant neighborhoods in Breda. The Ginnekenstraat leads from the inner city to the Ginnekenweg and Ginnekenmarkt. Together with the Eindstraat, Karrestraat and Torenstraat, the Ginnekenstraat is the high street in Breda. This is where you will find the big brand shops. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants and great little boutiques on the Ginnekenweg and adjacent Wilhelminastraat. Here, we recommend Palma (Ginnekenweg 85) for the best boho fashion, and LILA the store (Wilhelminastraat 12) for beautiful apparel and interior design from Scandinavian brands.
Looking for luxury goods? In that case, the Veemarktstraat is the place to go. From fashion stores to luxury lingerie shops, and from exclusive menswear to high-end jewelers — you’ll always find what you are looking for on the Veemarktstraat.
Indoor shopping in Breda
The weather may not always be good, but the upside is that you’ll have a perfect excuse to explore every single shop at de Barones, an indoor shopping mall in the center of Breda. De Barones is open seven days per week. Here you will be able to shop till you drop on big brands like Hugo Boss, Comma and Pull&Bear. The entrances are on the Lange Brugstraat and Eindstraat.
Food and drinks in Breda
Strolling through Breda’s shopping streets all day will make you hungry. Fortunately the city boasts plenty of great places that serve delicious food and drinks. If you have a sweet tooth, A Cup of Cake (Sint Janstraat 6) serves the best freshly baked cupcakes every day. Barista Café (Grote Markt 10) is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of good coffee and delicious lunch when you take a break from shopping. There are also plenty of great restaurants in Breda to order a wonderful dinner in the evening.
