Café ‘t Smalle is a perennial favourite of both locals and tourists alike. The name itself is an interesting one, and it means ‘narrow bar’. It closed during the lockdowns and emerged with new owners who added a modern twist to this historical classic. It kept most of the old world feel with its wooden panelling and mezzanine. It has been saving drinks since the 1780s. There is always a lovely atmosphere inside and during the good weather it has a lovely waterside terrace. They have some really lovely beers and some classic bar snacks, including bitterballen and cheese cubes. For more information, see the Café ‘t Smalle website.
