Nice location and nice ambiance at the café. There is enough on the menu to choose from, nothing original though. It seems a bit expensive for the quantity and quality of what is served.

Went there for a leisurely breakfast on a nice sunny Sunday morning - service was friendly and welcoming, drinks were quickly served and enjoyable, and the breakfast platter was a great start to the day. This part of town has a few similar places but this looked the most-welcoming and is certainly recommended. What it does is simple but well... More

We went here during gap of our hospital appointments. It's alright but nothing special.. I mean.. I would not come specifically to this cafe unless I live in the neighborhood, then it will be fine.

We had the soup of the day and the sample platter with bread, cheese, and some beet root spread. Friendly people, priced well and good food. warm smoothie was a bit strange for us though?? Would recommend for a nice lunch or breakfast if you get there by noon.

This place is definitely worth a visit. Very informal setting, more of a cafe look. Mostly salads and sandwiches. Everything looks and tastes fresh. Very nice cappuccino. We had a strawberries, cheese, walnuts, and watercress salad. Very nice. Duck pate and watercress over very good bread. Very enjoyable.

The cafe has a cosy atmosphere, almost like being at a friend's place. It's popular but because it's not in the city centre, you can have a conversation without yelling. The food is fresh and very good. The staff is super friendly. It can easily become your local café.

Close to the Wilhelminapark you'll find this cute place. If you look close enough, that is. Slightly hidden away between the stores on Burg. Reigerstraat is HOOI, a small restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch. Everything served is produced within a few miles of Utrecht and tastes amazing. The owner and staff are very attentative and kind. I'm just thinking... More

A very cute and relaxed breakfast / lunch place near the Wilhelminapark. They specialize in honest, country style food from local farmers. And that really pays off! The bread and croissants are straight from the oven and the friendly staff will cook your egg exactly the way you want it. They have a small number of tables outside and can... More
