I went here with my parents for lunch. They ordered an omelet which was huge! I ordered a small size "Bracke" salad. Glad that I didn't order the large size as this was more than enough for a lunchtime meal. The atmosphere is nice and making a reservation is recommended, as they get very busy!

BRACKE is an institution in Heerlen. It’s what the locals call a café, or, in English, could be called a pot-luck pub. In a way, it’s typical Dutch, or rather part of the “Limburg” tradition, surely the most charming province Holland has to offer (of course, perhaps, we’re a bit partial too, and some folks always exceptions to the rule)....

This is a popular eating venue throughout the year, with seating outside when it is warmer. The food is good, well priced and the menu is extensive. The staff are also happy to discuss and adapt meals to meet specific dietary needs

We were 6 people and arrived at 20.45. No order could be taken after 21 but the staff allowed to order till 21.15. We really apprecited. Local beer too sweet for my taste, deer was tender but wild pig little bit too dry. Affordable prices but not cheap.

We went here with a group of 4 on a Saturday night. The food was very tasty and absolutely enough. The bbq dish was a bit disappointing ( way more salad than meat) but after a friendly comment to the waiter he deducted € 3 from the bill. They have a few good vegetarian dishes, nice to actually have a... More

Bracke is a very popular place, so you're packed into the cafe with little space between the tables. I have never seen so many main courses on the menu as in Bracke. Normally that's not a good sign, but the food is pretty good actually.

We often go there to eat. It's a very nice restaurant were you can eat a lot of different food. And the price for food and drinks is not too expensive! It's also very busy, so you can make a reservation. The service is very good and there's a very friendly staff. So go..... and visit this restaurant.

I often go here with friends or when we want to have a quick dinner outdoors. Food (sate, wraps, spaghetti, schnitzel, everything is possible!) is good for what you pay. Also a nice lunchroom. It is always busy and I believe reservation is only possible with a group. You can wait at the bar for a table and it never... More
