De Wasserette – The place for a hangover weekend

Some people say the weekend is for partying and weekdays are for resting. Others say the week is for working and the weekend for resting. I tend to balance in the middle of the two. Either way, De Wasserette is a great place to chill on a Saturday morning or ignore your hangover on Sunday.

I was introduced to De Wasserette after a night of partying and waking up in a place I don’t call my home. My friends were having breakfast: a double espresso, an omelette and some homemade granola with Greek yoghurt. I instantly joined them, had an iced tea and some wentelteefjes (French toast). I realised this was just what I needed: a good breakfast and some friends to chat with.

People in the neighbourhood seemed to need the same. Every time I have a coffee, breakfast or lunch at De Wasserette the place is busy and filled with people. For a good reason, their small menu has something for everyone, and it all tastes like something you have to try! De Wasserette is a good place to catch up with friends and discuss the week(end). During spring and summer, the small square and the streets around it live up around 10:00 in the morning and the streets fill with people going out for groceries or a visit to one of the cafes nearby.

What to do with the weekend is different for everyone; I know I’ll be spending a part of it in De Wasserette!
