“A very cool exterior with a nice, cozy interior:

This café serves dinner beginning at 1700 hours and has a wide variety of seasonal plates to choose from. The menu is divided into vegetarian, fish and meat entrees, and the menu changes with the seasons. Many dishes incorporated pumpkin and other fall flavors. The plates are artfully designed, but the portions are ample and the prices are right (around 10-13 euros per plate). The food was divine! I had a potato and beet sauté with fried goat cheese and my husband had spinach soufflé with pine nuts (which tasted like heaven!). We also split a mixed salad (large and only 1.50 euros) and had a upside down apple and pear tart with cinnamon ice cream. It was definitely not your typical German/Netherland-Germany border cream sauce laden food. It was complex flavors using local, in season ingredients with an elegant presentation, but priced affordably. It is a definite must try if you go to Eindhoven. Additionally on some evenings they have live musical performances. Enjoy!”
