The restaurant is right on the main street, across from the Abbey. They also own a hotel on site.
The shaded inner courtyard (see photo), where we had coffe and dessert one day, offers a pleasant place to get away from the street.
There are several dozen tables outside, with a view of the whitewashed houses and the Abbey.
The staff speak English very well, and are quite friendly.

Pancakes look like the only thing they have here, but though this is a delightfull dish, in the province Limburg (to which Thorn belongs) the people are knowing how to live life to the fullest. Bourgondian, as we call it. We enjoyed a pancake with a local beer and then you realy can soak in relaxation. The weather was superior and thus a perfect memorable moment we spend on the terrace in front of the cemetry (nice view!)
Favorite Dish: Pancakes of course together with a deliscious local beer (let the waiter / waitress recommend you one according to your specific wishes)
The flan tard is delicious!
And mr. Housman has had many prices for his flan tards so this isn t just an ordinary bakery ;-)
