As our loyal readers might know, we are often somewhat reluctant when it comes to franchise formulas. But we do not exclude them. Certainly not if they add so much to the existing offer as Barista Café at Stadhuisplein in Rotterdam. We were waiting for something like this!
The owner did not really know the Maasstad when he decided to start and open this new company here on September 12, 2018. And we are very happy with that, because Rotterdam could use a daredevil in the center again. We held our own office at the Coolsingel last year, so during the renovation we were already curious to see what we could expect from this new acquisition. We were invited to experience what it has become and to give Barista Café Stadhuisplein the attention it deserves!

We walk into the spacious but warm space and take place in the back where the friendly service takes our order at the table, no self service here. Very nice. Well, let's first try the espresso and the cappuccino! And yes, with the 'quality coffee' of their own blend of beans from Peru, Brazil and Indonesia we really enjoy that. But although you might expect it by name, this hotspot is so much more than just their good coffee.

More than good coffee
In the morning, you are welcome from 9 am (on Sunday and Monday an hour later) to have a delicious breakfast and as far as we are concerned you can stay until the end of the afternoon and continue with a nice lunch, drinks or an extensive high tea (on reservation). We do not stay the whole day, but besides breakfast we are spoiled with very tasty homemade pastries, perfect for every sweet-tooth. Fresh from the kitchen every day!

The extensive menu has permanent dishes and changing specials, but always something for the moment and the mood! Vegetarians and vegans can easily order here. So not just salads, but those are recommended as well! Do you eat gluten-free? No problem! They have gluten-free bread and gluten-free sweets such as banana bread and pumpkin bread!

Different occasions and mixed audience
Although according to the owner, who tells us more about their Barista Café, many women find the hotspot, everyone is welcome. Do you work in the center? Get a coffee to go! Do you want to watch people? Take a seat on the comfortable seats in front of the window.

In the back there's a children's corner next to a comfortable Chesterfield-like sofa (and they've got a children's menu)! Do you have a meeting? They also have a table for that! It's directly next to the children's corner, so check whether it is quiet enough. ;) And soon, with the nice spring weather, they have a terrace at the front and at the back of the building! Need we say more?

We are convinced!
This Barista Café may already be number 22 (!) in the Netherlands, it has it all and really adds something to this location. And that 7 days a week! Rotterdammer, you no longer have to avoid this square if the Ski-hut is not entirely 'your thing'. In fact, go along for a cup of good coffee (breakfast, lunch, ..) if you're in the center! It will surprise you positively.
