Koffie ende Koeck
Are you near the westerpark? Then walk out to Koffie end Koeck! A nice, cozy shop where you can order a lot of healthy things. It sits on a somewhat inconspicuous place on the Haarlemmerweg. Owner and chef Maartje makes cakes, hot soups and delicious sandwiches that are honestly a feast to eat. What makes it extra special is that all the dishes are 100% vegetable based and vegan. Pretty much everything is organic and the lactose-free options are limitless. Even when you want to eat gluten free, Maartje has so much on offer for you. Nice!
Founder Nicolien Brzesowsky recently went to Koffie ende Koeck for lunch. What struck her directly was the interior. This is made from recycled material, using ecological chalk paint. Also, the menu and for example the coffee are as sustainable as possible. With a vegetable based cappuccino you save a 100 litres of water compared to one with cow’s milk! And next to everything being organic as much as possible, it is also about direct trade as much as possible. Her bun was super tasty, but she now actually regrets that she didn’t choose for a nice piece of cake to have! On instagram you can see what kind of tasty cakes Maartje makes in her small kitchen. You can also buy an order of the pies (or cake pieces) or order them to cater the venue for a special occasion. Very handy!
Vegan High Tea
At koffie ende Koeck they also serve a vegan High Tea! I don’t know if you also noticed that the High Tea is completely hip and happening again? I would definitely try this High Tea! With different sweet and savoury delights. Scones, tea, English tea sandwiches, cakes and unlimited tea. Tasty and healthy by the way. Fun to do with girlfriends on the weekend. Make a reservation well in advance to avoid disappointment.
