We stumbled upon this little gem in Gouda, looking to escape the cold and not intending to eat. When the waitress asked whether we had booked, we were a little nonplussed, but soon realised why. Within moments of us being seated the place became packed! Clearly the locals support this fabulous place. It is operated by mentally handicapped people who... More

I had been here before. But this time we were with a big group (24). Everything was well organized, the food was excellent and the service was warm and welcoming. I found I wasn't the only one who found my way there. Place was full of happy eaters.

This is a great cafe for a quick lunch. It is staffed by wonderful people and the service is top notch. Paninis were delicious as was the hot chocolate. The high tea looked great on the other table. Loved it.

If you want a slice of wonderful buttery Dutch apple pie and creamy steaming hot latte, this is the place to go. The cafe is decorated in pink and has pictures of the staff on the wall. Many of the waitstaff are people with disabilities, and they do an exceptional job. That the owners of the restaurant would emply these... More

I really liked this coffeehouse. We came in unexpectedly to get some easy lunch and were pleased with healthy sandwiches. What I appreciated from Juuls coffeehouse is the fact that the owner is employing people with disabilities and they are so nice. Go there on a market day and seat next to the window, you will enjoy seeing people passing... More

We had lunch here during a short stop in lovely Gouda. Everything was good but I especially like that most of their staff are disabled people who clearly love what they are doing and take great pride in it. Some even managed to communicate in English. I wish more places would do like this. Oh, and the lunch good too... More
