Bistro
“Little bit more expensive restaurant but really worth it!! The location is great. It is a very old renovated building with graffiti still on the walls. The dinner is high quality. Special recommendation is the '4-course chefs dinner' There is also a nice terrace overlooking the canal.”

“De Binnenkomer is my favorite little restaurant with a very good price quality. |t has nice vintage furniture and you can eat outside on the terrace when the weather allows. My recommendation is the '"STEAK BAVETTE' but they have very good vegetarian options as well. If you go for coffee you should try the 'DADELCAKE with butterscotch sauce”

Bakeries

Bakery
“Bakery. Sometimes it might takes an extra second to finish your order, because they work with enthousiastic, but intellectually limited people. There's also a small seating area (coffee corner) to eat your breakfast.”

Bakery
“Om trek van te krijgen! Je ziet hier echte ambachtslieden met liefde de biologische broden, eierkoeken en appeltaart bereiden. Kijk in Bakkerij Raat hoe ze deeg beslaan en verse broden uit de oven halen. Je ziet er echte ambachtslieden, met liefde voor het vak, die zoveel mogelijk met de hand werken. Een unieke bezienswaardigheid! De winkel en de bakkerij zijn daarnaast beide volledig biologisch en gespecialiseerd in speltproducten. Het assortiment van spelt is groot en varieert van (stok)brood tot eierkoek en appeltaart.”
