The best things come from the neighbourhood. So do Knol's cookies. For almost a hundred years, these delicacies have been made in Groningen. Traditional and by hand. In the same way as grandfather Knol did. With even a machine from that period. Take a look at the bakery at the Hoendiep. The smell of fresh cookies already wafts into your nose. Here you get fresh nut cake, old wives' cake or just normal cake.
