Quite busy place mostly local people, so must be popular. Only for breakfast/lunches. Good traditional Dutch lunch - sandwiches of different modifications following the imagination of agile diner's staff.

Cosy, warm and well placed "bistrot-like" in Utrecht. All sandwiches we ate (8 people) were well prepared, quite big and with fresh ingredients. I ate the club sandwich and it was delicious and big. Then someone got the eggs with toasted bread , and we shared it: lovely even if so simple! This place won in the way they treated... More

5 friends and I decided to have lunch at Van Thijs from the great reviews on TA. The café itself was quite small so the waitress seated us outside until tables opened up for us, which is pretty standard at most cafés. However, the real difference at this café is that the waitress gave us a round of complimentary coffees... More
