Bistro Zebra: During the day it’s a bistro for a cup of coffee brewed with locally roasted beans, in the afternoon you can order a French baguette or spekkoek (Indonesian layer cake) with a good glass of wine on the terrace.

The Maker Cafe: The Maker Cafe is the place in De Hallen to bring your laptop, enjoy a nice drink and a pastry. The insider tip that we got was: order the oat milk cappuccino at The Maker Cafe with a piece of sticky toffee and banana cake ;-).

Bar Bouwmeester: This is a spot that you can visit the entire day for a cup of coffee, extensive lunch or a nice drink at the end of the day. What’s special about this place is that you can order everything of the menu the whole day through.
