Utrecht has a lot of great hotspots. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks; there is enough to choose! But there are places that have a whole lot to offer and BROEI is one of them! So we decided to cycle along the Vaartse Rijn to have breakfast at BROEI on a Sunday morning.
BROEI is located at the Oosterkade. Meanwhile we can say that this street has undergone a fantastic development! Many restaurants, coffee shops and creative spots have found their place here. You can easily walk there from Utrecht Central Station, but BROEI also has its own station at 20 meters distance: Utrecht Vaartsche Rijn. By bus, car or bike is also an option. Anyway, as long as you'll get there, because this place can not be missed.

Back to our bike ride. It was a drizzly day, so we passed the terrace where you can easily spend a whole day when it's sunny. On this terrace you have a view over the canal that lies between the authentic Utrecht canal houses. Here we enjoyed many beautiful days last summer, while enjoying delicious food and a great view.

But today it was time to taste the atmosphere inside. And that looks beautiful as well! We can hardly believe that the interior was invented by Stijn and Danny (the owners) themselves, and no interior stylists were involved. Anyway, Stijn and Danny also seem to have these skills. Their style is vintage-industrial and the whole feels like a big living room. Fine places have been created to work, get together, meet each other and let new things 'brew' (the translation of BROEI).

After looking around for a while it was time to take a good look at the menu. The food of BROEI is all vegetarian, and let that be my favourite! I loved that the whole menu is vegetarian and I could choose from everything! The menu is typical Dutch. In Holland everyone talks about pancakes and scrambled eggs, but BROEI still has the Dutch words 'pannenkoeken' and 'roerei' on the menu. The vegetables mainly come from the garden of Danny's mother and you can also enjoy the special of the day. BROEI prepares honest dishes, with love and respect for the environment. And you can taste that. We enjoyed every dish and the coffee was delicious too.

The warm atmosphere they convey is palpably present. You feel very welcome and the guests are therefore very diverse. From foreign students, flex workers and trendy locals to the elderly.

We enjoyed the beautiful location, delicious food, friendly contact with the owners, the beautiful interior and being together. It even feels a bit like we belong to the BROEI family now, and we would love to come back again!
