Was a Wed, most places closed in Jonkers and was lucky to find this hidden jem. Very nice vibe and atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent and very kid friendly.

A cosy and relaxing place filled with lush greenery set against the backdrop of quaint houses dated back to the 17th century. Great food served here.
