welcome!

… to our charming little eatery at the Bosboom Toussaintstraat, appreciated home of locals and tourists. Just around the corner of the noisy streets you sometimes just want to escape from. Magic happens in our cosey open-plan kitchen, where delicious dishes are freshly prepared. Buns and cakes and soups and many more appetizing home-cooked dishes.
Take a seat on our terrace under the trees and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. We serve fine coffees and sweets, wines and tasty snacks or a wholesome meal. Our ever-changing menu offers a variety of choices. Who could wish for more!

You are welcome with friends and family, solo or with a group (of max. 10).

always exciting

We regularly organise food events around specialties of the season, like mussels feasts, barbecues or wine tasting. We aim to surprise with tasty themes and new concepts. Activities will be announced on this website. Do check every now and then!

Toussaint always keeps you busy. There’s plenty of games in our cupboard. Outside, next to the large, green terrace, is our famous jeu de boules court for guests who like a bit of competition. Never a dull moment!
