Standing for koffie en krafts (coffee and crafts, though “krafts” isn’t exactly the proper Dutch word…), it’s a cozy little cafe with a tasty menu but the service can leave you wanting. (Literally wanting, as there are times when it takes forever to get your food.)
The food menu is typical of a lunch cafe, with a selection of sandwiches, salads and soups. They serve a limited breakfast menu and also have a selection of baked goodies, like pies and cakes. Kek serves loose leaf tea at precisely the correct temperature, so if you’re a tea snob, this is the cafe for you. They also have a lot of tasty varieties of coffee and even two kinds of chai lattes.
The goat cheese sandwich is delicious, served with grilled peach and bacon. Other items, such as the chicken teriyaki sandwich, are uninspired. The baked goods are also hit or miss. The buttery cookie they serve with a warm drink is delectable, but the brownies and cookies are only moderately good. The various tea flavors are great.
The cafe may seem overcrowded with decorations but everything is for sale, from the chair you’re sitting on to the wall art. Shop around and see if anything strikes your fancy while you’re waiting for your food. Overall, the place is very cozy and warm, if the spacing is a bit tight for the tables in the front. The other unpleasant feature is that some of the kitchen area is located behind the bar in the middle of the restaurant while the rest is located in the back. The staff traversing back and forth with dirty dishes can be a bit off-putting.
The service is also unpredictable. At times, the staff seems limited and service is incredibly slow. The waitstaff is always very friendly and helpful, just not especially efficient.
There’s free wifi, but it’s set up so that you have to like them on Facebook to use it. There is no English-language menu available.
Lunch for two will cost about €25.
