Matthys the Baker’s

A household name in Mechelen for twenty years, traditional baker's Matthys is synonymous with delicious products prepared with tender loving care, like the typical Flemish 'vloerbrood' - bread baked on the stone floor of the oven - and traditional 'pistolet' rolls. Moreover, all the ingredients, such as custard and leaven, are homemade. Baker Willem Matthys is the fourth generation of bakers, which makes Bakkerij Matthys a truly traditional establishment!

The speciality is the pointed shortbread called 'Mechels Torentje'. The stone pride of Mechelen, St Rumbold's Tower has been transformed into a delicious crunchy biscuit. It was invented by Willem Matthys in 2004 to mark the re-opening of the newly renovated shop. Since 2008 the 'tower biscuit' has been recognized as a regional product… and one that's well worth sampling! Mechelen Tower is now also available in chocolate and caraque!
