Grand Café De Buuren van Pieck is located in a traditional house, that was used for the local branch of the Twentsche Bank. The interior is made up with a lot of old brown typical Dutch furniture. The ladies room is at the former bank safe.
There's a small outdoor terrace in front at the Koningstraat. Indoors there are some nice front tables at the street windows. In the center is the bar with a reading table and there's more seating in the rear room.
The name of the café (Neighbours of Pieck) originates from the fact that in 1895 Anton Pieck was born next door at nr. 87. Anton is famous as the inspirator of the Efteling Amusement Park.

Restaurant De Bonte Boel, Groet
If you have kids then you should visit this restaurant. It s great for kids, they are allowed to walk while waiting for the food, get some crayons and a colouring picture and when the bill is paid, they get another little present! Great fun to be there, lovely colours everywhere and the food is fine!

Andy's Kitchen is run by chief cook Andy Klausener. His restaurant has a modern look and the menu is quiet surprising.
You will probably find a restaurant, café or terrace here, but I must warn you that there isn't really much here. Better just visit and eat somewhere else.
