I guess everyone has at least once read a list of hotspots in cities like Amsterdam or Rotterdam, but do you know where to eat or drink when you’re in Dordrecht? If not, keep reading. If you do, keep reading too, you mind find some nice new places to go.

NO.38 City Bakery Café

Are you rushing in the morning and don’t you have time to make breakfast? Or do you just want to have your breakfast elsewhere than in your own kitchen? NO.38 City Bakery Café is the place for your breakfast. You can go there for breakfast with eggs, or some yoghurt with granola and fresh fruit. Too late for breakfast? No worries, they also serve lunch or coffee with pie. You can even go there for some wine in the late afternoon.

Heer & Meester

If you’re into vegan and bio and you love coffee, Heer & Meester is just the place for you. They have bio coffees and even fresh ice cream. Coffee is their specialty, but they also have sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches and flammkuchen. And if you love this place so much you don’t want to leave; you can stay the night at their Bed & Breakfast.

Smooth is a new, photogenic lunchroom in the Voorstraat. You can go there for a coffee (with a macaron), breakfast or lunch. If you’re in for breakfast or lunch you can go for the yoghurt or for special sandwiches. They have a sandwich with peanut butter, arugula, cucumber and sambal, and one with harissa hummus, avocado and feta cheese, and many more. Smooth also serves different smoothies which can be put into a bowl and topped off with fresh fruit, coconut flakes and granola. Another pro about this place: you can make great photos for your Instagram feed.

With the summer ahead, it is always time for some ice cream. This is not just a normal ice cream shop where you buy some ice cream and leave. This shop is furnished for a longer stay. It invites you to stay a little longer and enjoy your ice cream. They even sell gluten free ice cream. And besides ice cream, they also serve lunch, like grilled cheese sandwiches.

Villa Augustus also has a market, so you can even take home some of the fruit.

For the ones amongst us who love the French kitchen, there is Bistro Twee33. The menu of this restaurant is filled with French dishes like guinea fowl, sea bream, or steak tartare. The French restaurant is also the place to go for a glass of wine and some appetizers. And if you want to taste some wines, you can always choose to go for the high wine with some of your friends.
