Laurensius – Your French neighbourhood bistro

There’s this cute place in town. It’s a bit hidden and the people are super nice. With help from neighbours there’s this neighbourhood bistro with a French twist.

Your host Laurens opened this bistro which is meant to be a meeting place whether people and neighbours meet up for work or just sit and relax or read the paper.

The bistro is right on the corner of two streets so you can’t miss the spot with the yellow awning. They had some remodelling done in the place and gained more space for extra tables, yay!

The menu serves (warm) drinks, lemonades and home made specialties like crêpes, Madeleine cookies, salads and galettes, a pancake look-a-like which is also gluten and lactose-free, made with buckwheat. There’s also a vegan galette option and all produce used is local and organically grown.

The kitchen is usually open till an hour before closing time and if it isn’t busy, they will close after 8pm. Should you suddenly have a craving for a galette at say 7pm, do give them a call beforehand to check. If it’s busy, they are open till 10pm.

I can only say to just go there and dig into one (or more) of their delicious galettes (I’m more of a savoury type of person).
If you’re not able to sit and eat there, take it home with you :-).

There will be an event every last Sunday of the month, so hop by if you’re in the area.

Bon appétit!
