Had a delicious lunch on a rainy winter day in Alkmaar. The menu is anything but ordinary. We shared a grilled goat cheese & fig chutney sandwich and cheese soup. There are English menus if asked for. The selections are limited and unique.

The name of this place brings a smile to your face. It is a cozy place in a good location. The outside seating in front and on the side near the monumental 'visbanken' is a nice extra, weather permitting. The staff is friendly and welcoming.
