Paul, Nathalie & Isabelle Gaelens
It all started in 1923, when my grandfather Pierre Gaelens opened his bakery in Knokke with specialties like the Misérable and the Riz Condé.
A little piece of the tradition of Knokke was lost, when the bakery closed its doors, not long ago. But therefore the adepts of good taste will not loose their favorite desserts like the Misérable and the well known big assortment of other desserts.
Being grandson of Pierre Gaelens, I now continue the tradition of quality desserts.
Our priority is quality and the use of 100% guaranteed natural ingredients, without using preservatives, nor colorants.
Concerning hygiene and quality, we follow the most strict standards, from basic ingredient to final product.
All our products are produced, stocked and transported with controlled environment.
