The Best Cafe in the Netherlands: De Bóbbel


The hotly contested accolade in 2012 was awarded to Sjinkeij de Bóbbel in Maastrict.


A surprising choice really, as they only have one brand (Brand, as it happens) of beer and they play very heavily on their brandy-based, mysterious Bitter Bobbelke, which is poured at your table, as tradition dictates that one must initiate imbibing with a slurp.


Unusually for the Netherlands, the interior is stylish, decadent and bespoke with, even more unusual for the Netherlands, attentive service. Quaint central Maastricht adds to the old-world feel of the place.
