We were in Sluis on a strange day . . . rain, sun, rain, sun. We were walking by the canal when one of the rains started and it got pretty intense so we decided it might be a good idea to duck inside a restaurant. The Balmoral was right on the canal and had a wide overhand and heaters so we chose it. Good choice!
We found a table in the back of the enclosure but still outside and checked the menu. The wait staff were very helpful, patiently explaining all the things we didn't understand. During a quiet moment our waitress came over and told us about things to visit in the area and then disappeared, quickly returning with a local tourist magazine that she gave us.
Favorite Dish: We didn't have a meal, only coffee as it was mid-morning. Here is my journal entry:
"We kept on until the rain and wind became too much for us. Sought a dry table at Balmoral on Kaai (the canal street) where we ordered coffee, hot chocolate and (we thought) two appel beignets. When they arrived, we each had four appel beignets on a plate. I ate all mine; Ed could only down three. They were hot, fresh and delicious . . . and very filling. We gave up the idea of lunch."
They were more what I would consider an apple fritter and were dusted with confectioners sugar. They obviously had just been made and were hot and delicious, perfect for a cold, rainy day!

Since the town is quite small, then you might have some problems when parking your car. You have to be sure if it is needful to pay for the parking or you managed to reach the pay free zone.. You can try to leave the car bit away from the center and have a walk.. this is especially recommended when weather is nice and sunny :)
