Stadsbrouwerij de hemel: Stadsbrouwerij de Hemel
Brewery cafe in the Commanderie van St Jan. Good selection of tasty beers, as well as liquers and mustard made from the beer. Guess who bought a pot of mustard?
The clock is worth close investigation too.
Friendly bar to spend an hour on a snowy day, try the mixed cheeses with mustard with a beer!
Blauwe hand: Blauwe hand
As I said earlier, we didn't stray too far from Grote Markt because of the weather. Truthfully we propably wouldn't on a sunny day having found this bar. a brown cafe at it's best, friendly with a great choice of beer including some from the stadsbrouwerij around the corner.
Food looked good and popular but did not have any ourselves.
Grand cafe Atlanta: Grand cafe Atlanta
Arrived in Nijmegen in a blizzard, so lunch in the hotel bar. On the menu baguettes right through to a full meal. Both went for the first and well presented, very tasty and filling.
Stopped for a beer there last thing at night, friendly and fun, recommended
There are here a lot of restaurants, you can eat Greek, Italian, Turkish, Mexican, Indian, Chinees, and a lot more. And if you like it you can eat here dutch too. Here is the Belvedere now a restaurant with a beautiful view over the river Waal and the Ooy polder.
Weet je wel: Coffee and especially the apple pie Yummy!
A nice restaurant! Very good balance between price and quality!
Favorite Dish: If you are doing a city walk Weet je wel is the best place for a cup of coffee with home made apple pie. This is a coffee house you will only find if are leaving the shopping streets. Except of coffee they offer a small breakfast, lunch and dinner card. The service is great same for the cookery!
Mezzo: Why don't they all have this on the menu!!!
"Modern European Cooking". That's what they wrote on the wall. It's a good description. The food is different and diverse.
I really love the bouillebaisse, Thai fish curry and the salmon on tagliatelle with noilly-prat sauce. The people are real friendly and the prices are below average. The ambience is modern, but not "up-tight". The toilets are really clean; which isn't unimportant. They recently rebuild the place; with success. It looks great.
Favorite Dish: I really love the bouillebaisse; a French fich soup. Abit spicy but with lots of (shell-)fish.
The salmon on tagliatelle with Noilly-Prat sauce is quit special. You even get a small starter for free, besides the home-baked bread. The portions are actually too big.

Bart (bakkerij): A very great bakery for a delicious snack
If you don't want to go to a restaurant, fast-food or pita-shop, the Bart Bakery is a very good alternative! You can find there delicious pizzas and cheese & onion breads and of course all kinds of bread and sweets :-)
De Kluizenaar Restaurant: Great restaurant near El Corte
The restaurant belongs to the bar De Kluizenaar and you can have there the same atmosphere : a little bit of old kitsch but very warm and friendly atmosphere! My friend Corine and I were looking for a table and we shared the table of another tango couple from Utrecht (Paul & Parras) that we get to know during the meal!!!!
Favorite Dish: The vegeterian dishes are delicious ! I took the Duo Genotti and it was amazing : an original combination of nuts and pie and vegetables....
De Kluizenaar: Tango Kroeg
This cafe was one of the cafe where the "kroegentocht" of the DobleOcho festival was organised. The atmosphere there was really friendly : old and kitsch decoration, a wooden bar, friendly waiters and a little room to dance at the back... I was so amazed that this neighborhood cafe had so much customers...Thus not only the tango dancers for this special occasion : I guess the sun made all the people of the neighborhood go out and enjoy spending some nice time with friends.
Cafe "In de blauwe hand": Historical glory in a cafe
Favorite Dish: This cafe is one of the oldest cafe's within Nijmegen and is still holding it's original name" In de blauwe hand". Literally translated it means "In the blue hand" and it's called that way because it's located
near where the cloth dyers used to work (see "Laken-hal" in the must see activities), and their hands turned blue from the
indigo used to dye the cloth. The cafe dates back to the mid 16th century and
has been open since then. The place however is cosy, warm and serves a wide range in beers, beverages and liquors. For everyone that what he/she wants.
Cafe Restaurant "De Waag": Where you food can be weighted
Good for drinks on a sunny terrace or during the colder days in winter in the cafe, cafe-restaurant "De Waag" is a welcome change from shopping and/or sightseeing. In the evening one also can find a good menu here for an evening dinner or late supper.
Favorite Dish: Right on the central old market square in the historical "Waag" building.
Restaurant "Belvedere": Exclusive dinner with a view
On one of the most particular places within the Nijmegen centre-area one has the possibility to have dinner. Enetring the town from the North and crossing the bridge, one sees it immediately. On top of the hill is a towershaped building, which used to be a citywall tower and is now-a-days a very exclusive (and expensive) restuarant. At least you get a spectacular view over the bridge, the river and the flowerbed included.
Cafe "De Fiets" (the bicycle): Perfect place after a visit to the velorama
This place must be the perfect place to get something to drink after a visit at the Velorama (the bicycle museum). It is situated in the steep road leading from the Waal-kay to the Market square and on your left hand.
I scream, for Ice-Cream!
Well I will let you in on my little secret…. I love to eat ice cream! And if you love it to I advice you to try one of the scoops from Merano. It is an Italian restaurant on the Lange Hezelstraat.
Tip: If you get addicted you can buy 1 litre boxes ( : Filled with the flavours of your choice.

Uylenspieghel: The typical Nijmeegs restaurant
This restaurant is one of the typical Nijmegen restaurants. It’s special because of the unique Nijmegen ambiance…. Kids will love it! From the moment you enter you will feel like going back in time. There is so much to see like the stained –glass window. There is enough space for the little once under us, they can walk around and if they choose to have child menu they may make their own dessert in the kitchen! Please pay attention to the menu card that will be placed on a chair next to you.
If you want to finish your Nijmegen visit with a dinner, this is my number one advice.
Favorite Dish: I think the the whole dessert card is my Favorite
