Bitterzoet opened its doors in 2007 as a lunchroom but now also serves breakfast and Englishinspired afternoon tea. It is a place where locals meet, read the newspaper or pick up their favourite coffee to go. The menu offers a broad range of choices based on traditional Dutch dishes and international favourites from Britain, Italy and the Middle East. These dishes include various varieties of eggs and cereals for breakfast and light dishes, platters and yoghurts for lunch. Thus, the range of savoury and sweet options is also reflected in the name. All dishes can be accompanied or followed by a cup of top-quality coffee.
