Utrecht hotspots for food and drinks!
Great overview of Utrecht’s best places that you don’t want to miss out on!
To be honest we have no clue where to start as Utrecht is full of great places. Many restaurants are situated along the canal which is a perfect place (during summer) for a drink and a nice meal, overlooking Utrecht’s beautiful canals, watching the world go by. HMM dreamy! However, if you think this is all, you’re wrong.. Utrecht has many hidden places, if you don’t know about them you’ll never find them! Thats what we’re here for. Phew. Below we made you a nice list with our Fav Utrecht Hotspots.
Utrecht has a few hidden places to go to for an awesome breakfast. These are absolutely worth a visit, here we go…
‘De Ontdekking’ – (Discovery)
You’ll be surprised by the cosy atmosphere once you enter the doors of ‘De Ontdekking’… Gezelligheid! With home made healthy stuff you won’t get bored by a standard menu. Breakfast, lunch or just a coffee (with a piece of cake of course), this is where you need to be! Great food & drinks, free wifi, a mix of students, young professionals and families we are sure you’ll feel at home in no-time! ‘De Ontdekking’ is situated at ‘De Voorstraat’ where you’ll find a lot of nice shops, bars and cafes.
Oh and make sure you try the breakfast platter (before 12am) washed down with their cafe brûlée!
Check out their website, enjoy the loveliness!
Address: Voorstraat 110, 3512 AV Utrecht
The best sandwiches in town! A few years ago a little caravan appeared along the canal in the middle of town. In no time at all people were forming a queue down the street, this can only mean one thing… Goodness! And indeed, there is no other place like Broodje Ben! An endless assortment of mouth watering sandwiches which come as big as your head, also known for their jam packed fillings! Lekker! Give the Carpaccio #34 a try (they all go by number) we promise you’ll love it, and so will your pocket! Being as Broodje Ben is just a van in the street you have the option to get your fill whilst overlooking the beautiful canals of Utrecht, otherwise why not take it to one of Utrecht’s BYO’s (bring your own). These are great spots to hang out, or in (note; the terraces during summer get quite busy in Utrecht)
