It’s hip, it’s trendy, it has a cool terrace and streetside seating and nice food. Barbaar is a friendly cafe that’s great for a borrel.

The menu is fairly typical of a Dutch lunch cafe. Lots of sandwiches and salads. Dinner branches out a bit with some Indonesian-inspired dishes, as well. The menu changes fairly often, but some items are consistent.

For lunch, they make very nice soups, so if it’s a cold day and you need to warm up, go with the soup of the day/week option. Otherwise, the roast beef sandwich is a good bet. You can also do a half and half (half of a sandwich and small bowl of soup) for some variety.

In the evening, there’s usually a burger on the menu, though that’s not the best thing that they make. Opt for the meal of the day/week. It changes frequently, but the best food seems to come from when the kitchen is being creative. Anything served with their fries is a good bet, as they are delicious.

They also do a really nice borrelplank (a plate of small bites) which is perfect if you are there for a drink or want something to start off your meal.

The ambiance is hipster. There’s lots of raw wood, tastefully decorated shelves and visible metal piping.

It’s all table service and the service is okay. The waitstaff is friendly but sometimes disorganised and slow.

There is an English-language menu. The coffee is good and it’s a nice place to sit and work if the crowd is thin. The wine list is really good.

Lunch will cost around €15 per person and dinner around €40.
