Traditional and cozy pub

A typical cafe and brasserie, suitable for brunch and for drinks with friends in the evening. Service is a bit slow, but the location is central.

Had dinner here with 4 colleagues. We were welcomed and seated at a nice big table and the waiter was easy going. We arrived at 21:45 and we were rushed to order as the kitchen closes at 22:00 - pity. Food was very nice and tasty. Plenty to choose from on the menu and special beers too.

The food was great and the beer was good but most importantly the staff was able to handle the large group as we did our walking eating tour.

Broers menu is authentic and practical, but that is about all there is to say, there is nothing that draws your eye or tickles your fancy gastronomically. It is in a nice area of Utrecht and well priced. I would say they make a pretty decent cup of coffee and their sandwiches seem to hit the spot.

I'm not a huge fan of Broers, and yesterday was no exception to the rule. I was there with a choir after a concert. I got a coffee and a brownie I paid 7 euro's for (!!). The brownie was dry, like a cake leftover from the day. The coffee was ok, but I do feel 7 euro's is overpriced... More

Had starter as light supper after long day's journey. Staff friendly, food very good. Typical Dutch cafe/restaurant but with book lined shelves. Several people reading - like a library.

The restaurant is located 350m from the Dom Tower and has a nice interior in Art Deco style. There is plenty of seating and it was necessary as we were with a group of 68 people. However, I doubt to go as couple or with some friends. The food was relatively limited in volume and went smoothly as we got... More

I needed somewhere for lunch and a bit of study. This place was perfect, with a lovely atmosphere and awesome art deco decor. The staff were good when i eventually managed to get hold of one of them, the food was ok, the coffee awful (push button machine) but overall enjoyed but mainly due to surroundings being beautiful.

Once a year I visit Utrecht with my old study friends and almost automatically we go to Restaurant Broers, in the old historical building of Hotel de Pays Bas. It is conveniently located at the Janskerkhof in the centre of Utrecht. It serves European food, good quality and for reasonable prices. We always arrive between 7.30-8 pm, when it's not... More
