Restaurants in Utrecht | 9x new business

The year started well with the opening of several new restaurants in Utrecht city center and surroundings, on the station square and in the old post office of Utrecht. New in our city: hip coffee shop from Rotterdam, second locations up to new concepts.

Coffee, sandwiches, and meals to go at Lebkov & Sons

Lebkov & Sons opened its doors in Utrecht Central Station. The chain from Rotterdam is located at the beginning of the station, where most of us walk from the square to the train. At Lebkov & Sons you can get a coffee and breakfast before you catch the train. The sandwiches, soup, and salads are waiting for you. But you can also buy smoothies and several other drinks. Maybe with a piece of cake?


Vegan Bamboo on the stationsplein

Vegan Bamboo is located on the station square and offers a menu with all kinds of vegan dishes. Vegan Bamboo offers salads as well as a vegan hamburger. Dishes are to go or you can have a quick bite in the restaurant.

Horeca Paviljoen at Zijdebalen

It took a while but finally, the hospitality pavilion in the Zijdebalen was opened. Café – restaurant Ddadi has an extensive menu. You can go for breakfast until dinner. On the menu, you will find sandwiches, pancakes, cakes and more. The café offers several breakfasts so you can start the day well.

Spice Monkey at Oosterkade

At Oosterkade number 30 in the white building on the corner of the Pelikaanstraat, you will find the new restaurant in Utrecht: Spice Monkey.  And as the name suggests, there are many spicy dishes on the menu. Spice Monkey is for Bali-lovers! Here you eat Asian-Indo street food. We are curious! You guys as well?

Juuls Hummes

A second establishment for Juuls Hummus and all the locals. At Juuls Hummus you eat delicious hummus with different combinations of vegetables and meat. The vegan cakes from Bammetje bakery. Order a coffee and relax at this nice place.


Izakaya is decorated like a Japanese bar! You can also go loose here in the built-in karaoke cream. You can reserve these separately. So if you might have drunk a little too much Japanese beer or cocktails for some courage, you can go straight to the karaoke room. But you can also fill the evening with tasty snacks and drinks.

We are pluck

The cafes in the Stadstuinen make room for a New Wave Canteen called wearepluck. Would you like to experience what it’s like to be plucked? Grab your laptop or book and explore one of the gardens. Will you let us know if it’s safe? Then we will go for a look 😉

Noda at the new library

You can enjoy dishes over the whole world at the library at Noda. The restaurant is the beating heart of the new library where different cultures come together on your plate. Noda offers small dishes to share or not to share. On the menu, all continents pass by. What are you in the mood for? There is plenty to taste at Noda and all this with a view of the Oudegracht.

Meneer Potter at the Potterstraat

Mr. Potter is for everyone: big, small, student or bon vivant. You can go for bites with ingredients from Utrecht. After a day of studying in the library, you can enjoy the pintxos. Or start the weekend with a good glass of wine? It’s all possible with Meneer Potter.
