In De Karkol
It’s a bit of a search to find this ‘snail shell’ in the beautiful Stokstraatkwartier, but a visit to this cozy 37m2 little pub is definitely worth it. In 2016, Karkol was chosen as the best café in the Netherlands after ten consecutive top-ten rankings. A meeting place for young and old.
COFFEELOVERS is the place for coffee enthusiasts. Specifically, Blanche Dael coffee is served black or with delightful extras, hot or refreshingly iced, enjoyed in-store or ‘to go.’ Each COFFEELOVERS branch offers pastries and toasts alongside your delicious coffee (or tea). The PLEIN 1992 location also features a delightful breakfast and lunch menu.
If you’re in Maastricht and want to find bars and places to hang out, check out the Vrijthof Square for open terraces and bars on the nearby narrow streets. You can also find many bars with cool places to go on the Markt square.
