Distinguished visitors

She happy, you happy
If you crave coffee, drag your children to the Koekfabriek. Concept: buy a biscuit, get a cup of coffee (or a bottle of apple juice) with it.

To sleep

Simply the best
Waking up to the clanging of the Dom remains the best. Cozy Pillow is around the corner and has rooms to pass through a ring. For the real Utrecht experience you sleep in their newly opened room in one of the historic wharf cellars of the city.

Child friendly

Snack box
If you want to eat out, think of LE: EN at the trendy Rotsoord where you can share Asian snacks. If your child would rather have something for themselves, then there is the bento box for children with vegetarian spring rolls, noodles and banana ice cream.

Big hit
Bammetje Bakery is a vegan bakery where they have croissants that look like cakes. For example, the whole of Utrecht has already turned out for the crompouce (a baby from the croissant and the tompouce) and because it is pink, a big hit with our girl.

Famous rabbit
At Theo Blom pastry shop you can get butter biscuits with Miffy on it, also for sale in tins.
