There are plenty of restaurants and bars around the WTC.

Make sure to try out some typical Dutch food:

Go to Smullers at the station (for snacks from the wall) or you can go to a regular cafeteria snackbar.

Try a fresh stroopwafel!

If you like candy, you have to go to a Jam in store and try Dutch liquorice if you are feeling brave (salted!).

From the WTC, the Witte de Withstraat is THE street with restaurants (and art galleries!)

You can also visit de Markthal at the Ds. Jan Scharpstraat 298 for a vast selection of foodstalls. It is just a 10 minutes walk from the WTC.


Restaurant Bazar, located at Witte de Withstraat 16 is a highly recommended mulitcultural spot for lunch and dinner. Nice prices and fast service, perfect for a food break between programme items.

Duduk, located at Meent 88 is open all day and sells delicious apple cake.

The Schietlandshuis, located at Coolsingel 114 is a hidden gem close to the WTC. Expensive but beautiful dinner venue.

For Dutch pancakes, you can go to Parkhaven 12, the Pannekoekenboot (pancake boat) provides a 75 minutes trip on the river and unlimited pancakes for just 25 euros. You only have to pay extra for drinks.

If you prefer your pancake intake limited and on firm ground, you can try poffertjes (a typically Dutch tiny pancakes snack) at Poffertjessalon Seth. Hoogstraat 147.
