Vintage City Hotel & Bakery Café


May I introduce myself? I am Paula, mother, nearly 60 now surprised. I enjoy the art of baking, love reading about baking smile, being an entrepreneur, thinking about sustainability, how to make an effort to make the world a better place, enjoy meeting new people and having small talks with people young and old from all over the world. I enjoy facilitating the possibility to work as a team with nice people around me, and I love to travel to other cities and countries for new ideas and inspiration (hope to be able to do this some more in the future), introducing new things and last but not least, working on making our city of Amersfoort cuter every day.

We really care about our environment. Everything counts! We use a lot of recycled furniture, bring our orders by electric cargo bicycle as smart urban mobility. We joined a European project as the first one in Amersfoort, try not to throw food away, make as much as possible fresh and without preservative and try to reduce our energy use daily. We have developed a special drying rack for our wash and try not to have to iron our sheets.

The idea of Queens City Hotel and Vintage Bakery Café has it’s origin in Canada. My home country where I learned to bake from my mother, from our lovely neighbour Joyce Dalrymple, but also at my Canadian primary and high school.

Before starting Queens I had done a lot of different things. Had by own book shop, exchanged second hand books, was a secretary, worked at an employment agency. The last ten years before I started my own business, I worked in the financial sector doing mortgages and working at a bank. It was here that I had a lot of contact with entrepreneurs and thought.. now it is my turn! I got the idea of investing in a nice building in the centre of Amersfoort and made a plan to start with something completely new and different.

And now, twelve years later and survived the crisis! Still going strong! Everything I love to do, is possible here!

Warm and cosy

Vintage, classic, color …. Some words to describe Queens.  A mix of atmospheres, colors and objects that we have found or received over the years. We love to use and reuse things of the past!


Oh Canada

The idea of Queens City Hotel and Vintage Bakery Café came up in Canada, where Paula, the owner, grew up. Canadian influences are everywhere and that’s why pancakes and syrup will always be a fixed part of the menu ;). The first place in Amersfoort selling the American Pancakes so we have already baked thousands of them.
