GYS – The friendly vegan/veggie guy next door

GYS (or Gijs, a typical Dutch name for guys) opened here (hailing from Utrecht) and I can say that I am a frequent visitor, whether by myself or to meet up with friends. The location is quite central and on the corner of busy ‘sGravendijkwal/Nieuwe Binnenweg. It catches quite some sunshine too in the afternoon so it’s pretty good to hang outside (during warmer seasons ofcourse ánd despite the heavy traffic).

GYS offers very nice food with an eye and policy for sustainability in their food and interior, which is light and airy. The food is made with organic local produce and comes with the option of dishes with meat/poultry, veggie and vegan. What struck me are their affordable prices for their food and drinks.

What’s on offer? Breakfast, salads, sandwiches, burgers, sweet stuff, smoothies etc. The menu changes about every 2/3 months and all food is well prepared, very tasty and looks very appealing.

Have a look at their menu online if you’re curious.
I think it’s really great when you are on a budget (or not) and don’t feel like cooking.

No time to eat there but you long for one of their smoothies and/or a dish? Get your order delivered or pick it up as take-out.

See you at GYS!
