The person who said “never skip breakfast” was right. Why would anyone want to miss the best meal of the day? Once in a while it’s even better to upgrade you breakfast and have it at a lovely café. Just sitting back and let the food and coffee come to you. I lined up some of my favorite places in Utrecht where you will definitely have a breakfast party!

  1.  Elize

My-oh-my! I don’t think you can start your day any better than with breakfast at Café Elize. They are located at one of the best spots in Utrecht, Mariaplaats, and serve amazingly big breakfasts, perfect to share. Think fresh baked croissants, scrambled eggs, mimosa’s and so on. I really love how they spend time on every detail: candles, flowers and everything served in little bowls. Simply perfect!

  1. Karibu Café

Add a little Africa to your breakfast at Karibu Café. I discovered this place some time ago and I just keep coming back. Are you an “I want something else for breakfast everyday” kind of person like me? That’s cool! It doesn’t matter if you are into breakfast bowls, pancakes or eggs they serve it all. Better yet: delicious breakfast all day long. Make sure that you don’t miss out on the eggs Shakshuka!

  1. ‘t Koffieboontje

‘t Koffieboontje is an all time favorite of mine. Not only because it is just close to my house (definitely a huge plus, I am not complaining), but because they have AMAZING coffee! And seriously guys; what is breakfast without coffee? They don’t have an extensive breakfast menu as others might have, but their big breakkie is definitely worth a try!

  1. Yoghurt Barn

The name says all, for this one you have to be a yoghurt fan. I hear you thinking ‘what is so special about yoghurt?’. Think twice! At Yoghurt Barn they make every yoghurt dish special by adding the most delicious toppings. Not into yoghurt? Try their delicious overnight oats! Good news for students: bring you university card and get 10% discount on everything.

  1. De Rechtbank

Is breakfast never big enough for you? Then you might want to check out the breakfast buffet at de Rechtbank, because it is seriously HUGE! For a reasonable price (only 13,50) you’ll have unlimited pancakes, fresh baked bread, fruit eggs and many more. Create you own full English Breakfast or stack up as many pancakes as you can. You name it, they have it!
