August – A crispy baguette egg with onion

Egg with onion is one of my favourite sandwich toppings. And I really think you should try it too. Especially if you are staying here in The Hague, proud home town of the egg and onion sandwich. August –coffee, kitchen, bar– conveniently situated near The Hague central station, serves a crispy baguette egg with onion, mayonnaise, pepper and salt… Yummy!

At August they try to use as much organic and fair-trade products as possible. The ambiance is cheerful and industrial and the dark, soft furniture inviting. On top of the range of sandwiched baguettes, August offers breakfast, grilled cheese sandwich, salad, soup and cake. You can eat your order there, take it out or have it delivered.

Do try this at home
