We stopped at Thijs for an early lunch at about 11:30. The place was empty except for another couple but it quickly filled-up as noon approached. Nice tables available outside but not an option with rain coming. Seating is limited which makes the place feel cozy and welcoming. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food looks and tastes fresh.... More

We were there for lunch after reading the reviews from Tripadvisor and we were positively surprised by the quality of the food and with the sympathy of the owner. Its important to refer that the place is really not a restaurant since they only have soep, salads and sandwiches.

Foodwise, the courgette soup was very hearty and had a nice touch of spices to it. The pastrami sandwich with green apple was outstanding, and the Earl Grey tea was sublime. Another thing I picked out is that they even have dry towels in the lavatory for you. With such an attention to detail I personally feel that this litle... More

I made my friend walk a long way for this, and we were rewarded by being served a very good all-in breakfast. Every aspect of it was excellent, so we did it all over again the next morning. This deserves to be really successful.

after reading the reviews and being really said about what i'd found to eat in Utrecht, I stopped by for lunch. absolutely amazing...fresh ingredients, wonderful coffee and spectacular service. in a village, marked by high prices and lackluster food/service, this was really a stand out. highly recommend.

We sat ourselves along the table with view towards the street and enjoyed a really lovely breakfast with great coffee, crispy fresh croissants and a bio-sandwich with ham and cheese. At 7.50 there is little excuse not to eat out at this warm, accommodating and crispy clean place. The passion and professionalism are reflected in the decorations and the friendly... More

New Deli in the Biltstraat. This street on the edge of the old town of Utrecht has to offer lots of restaurants, deli's and great food shops. Thijs is new, the wooden floor was shining! He offers a real good breakfast deal, served by Thijs him self. You can enjoy your croissant with coffee/tea and orange juice/glass of milk looking... More

Had lunch at De Keuken van Thijs this week, what a lovely sandwich! The clubsandwich "Thijs" is amazing. The love and enthusiasm that Thijs and his girlfriend have for this place is represented in the atmosphere and the food. Finally a place in the Biltstraat where you can have a healthy and tasty lunch. Perfect to take your parents to... More

"De keuken van Thijs" was an amazing find! The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. They really put love into this place and it shows. From the clean and inviting interior design to the great menu made from fresh, organic, locally sourced produce. Not to mention the best Koffie Verkeerd in all of Utrecht! Wether you are looking for breakfast,... More
