non profit & 100% vegan - Edit

probably my favorite place to get lunch. It's non profit, run by volunteers and the food is amazing. I love the vegan desserts, around €1 or €2 so it's the cheapest I've seen so far. I've only ever been to the day cafe and it's not too crowded around 1 or 2 pm. The menu varies from toast with vegan cheese, to sandwiches with fake meat, hearty meals and dessert. This one time I had a lemon pistachio's cake which was the best cake I've ever tasted.
The people are friendly and it's a nice place to finish up some work.

The only downside are the opening hours, for awhile it wasn't consistent which resulted in standing in front of closed doors.

Pros: Cheap, nice people, , Best vegan desserts, Non profit

Cons: the anarchist side may seem overwhelming, sometimes a little too loud, opening hours were off for awhile

lovely place, people and food - Edit

We went for a sunday dinner (starter 1 euro, main 3 euro, dessert 1 euro) and we enjoyed it very much. Most people come at 7pm and you order and pay first at the bar and the food comes out for all the people at the same time for everyone. The soup was amazingly tasty and the main course was also quite nice. The place is big and spacious and peopls are super friendly.

The city is also very pretty and has many alternative charming places (and hills and a view!). Definitely worth a visit!

Pros: Very cheap, tasty, friendly, charming

I Loved it - Edit

Amazing atmosphere, nice food, cool place.
We had a very nice dinner with 3 courses: peanut carrot soup, lentils, potato curry, rice and beets with red cabbage. As a dessert (and I had to go to the kitchen to ask for the recipe), an carrot/apple crumble pie with soy cream.

Thank you guys for the great dinner

Really nice! - Edit

This place is really amazing! You can get a three-course meal for only 6 euro's! The menu is cooked by volunteers and the profits go charity. There's no better way the spend your money!

The menu is simple, vegan and usually very tasty. The place itself is very frank and welcoming; volunteers are friendly, and so are the guests. You can even go into the kitchen and help yourself to the left-overs!

It's also a great place to meet like-minded souls on all kinds of leftist issues, and to volunteer yourself.

Pros: Welcoming environment, Tasty, Cheap

So inspiring!! - Edit

The first time I went to the Klinker is almost ten years ago. I just met my girlfriend and she lived hundred meters away from this awesome place. I've been there every now and than since.

De Klinker is simply amazing. They serve a three course meal for very cheap and it's always vegetarian, always possible to make it vegan. You don't have options, there's only one menu. The queality of the dishes depend on the volunteers in the kitchen. Sometimes it's mindblowing, sometimes it sucks.
Ever since the squat is legalized, they also have soup cafe and daycafe. You can get (vegan) tosti's, coffee and such.

I have to say this is one of hte most inspiring places I have ever been. It's incredible. It seems everything is possible.

If you're into leftwing politics, vegetarian/ vegan diners, great atmosphere... go there!

Pros: cheap!, vegan!, autonomous!
