Best pancakes I've ever had - Edit

We went here while exploring Maastricht for the first time, since we will be moving to the area. I think we'll become regulars on the weekends, the pancakes were ridiculously good. Best pancakes I've ever had, vegan or non-vegan.

I found this place on on HappyCow but did not look into the details since we just needed a quick lunch. When I saw "vegan bakery" I assumed it was all vegan - unfortunately, it is not. I tasted the cows milk in my iced coffee, so went back to the counter to quickly change my order from the vegetarian quiche to the vegan pancakes. They were really friendly and it was no problem at all to fix the confusion.

There is a nice little outdoor seating area in the shade, and the interior is lovely quickly as well.

Pros: Excellent pancakes, Friendly staff, Cozy interior

Cons: Not 100% vegan, though sign outside says 'vegan'

Confused - Edit

When this place opened up it was sold as a vegan cafe so am quite confused as to why you have to specify for vegan milks etc. and this means it is not so different from any other cafe. The vegan cakes are ok but very expensive, even though making vegan cakes is very cheap. But I guess that is also the Maastricht Mark-up, as well as the 'vegan' mark-up. I was really excited for them to open but am disappointed with what was delivered. I am also sure that the first time I visited we were served regular cow's milk as we were made to believe it was a vegan cafe and so did not even think to ask. I only found out that the place wasn't vegan when a friend started working there which I think is a little shady. The place is beautiful though and nice to enjoy a coffee, just remember to ask as this is no vegan haven!

Pros: Nice decor

Cons: Not vegan, Expensive

Delicious pancakes and coffee - Edit

We had to wait a while for our order to arrive but everything tasted great. Excellent coffee, pancakes and chocolate cake. Clearly they know how to make great vegan food so just wish they would go 100 percent vegan!

I LOVE THIS PLACE - Edit

It is my dream to ever create a place like this. Its an animal and environmental friendly cafe with amazing coffee (they actually manage to foam the almond milk decently) and lovely food. Tip: try the chai latte with almond milk. The pancakes are to die for and the sandwich is always good. The atmosphere is super cozy and home like. Its like eating, sitting, reading in my own living room, but better. I had a chat with the owners and they are very kind and created this place out of passion. If you go to Maastricht, you simply HAVE TO visit!

Pros: amazing food, very friendly staff, cozy and original decoration

Surprising lunch spot - Edit

Great decor, with recycled materials. The staff was really friendly in explaining the menu, not too elaborate but mostly vegan. We had a great hummus sandwich (delicious home made bread) and vegan pancakes. Accompanied by the best chai latte i've had in years. Good to have discovered this place, for future visits to this lovely city

Pros: in the city centre, but not too busy and cosy atmo

I absolutely adore this place! - Edit

Great place to meet up with friends or to study. The staff is really friendly and there is always new choices of vegan cakes and pastries. The pumpkin cheesecake I had there a couple of weeks ago was out of this world.

Nice cafe - Edit

Yesterday we went there (1.12.) as we went for a day-visit to Maastricht and chose it over the Loving hut based on reviews here at HappyCow (we are not Chinese food lovers). We were really happy to have a place like this to eat at - it is a nice cafe, filled with youngsters working on their laptops, with few food choices. We had a soup and sandwich - soup was nice and hot, sandwich was made with a great, fresh bun with a bit too little of content (hummus with a bit of salad). Overall it was okay.
Just make sure that you agree on definition of vegetarian - we are lacto vegetarians and waiter and cook presumed that we are ovo lacto vegetarians, so we almost ate eggs in the quiche which is an absolute no no for us.



Updated from previous review on 2017-12-02

Pros: It exists!! (otherwise we would starve), Generous portion of the soup we ate

Cons: A little bit too expensive

First time in Maastricht and best pancakes - Edit

Me and my partner went today, tried nearly everything on the menu and every single thing was delicious. The pancakes are to die for and we will be going back. Also, the staff are super friendly and the place has a chilled vibe. YES.

Pros: pancakes, pancakes, pancakes

Cons: not enough pancakes, portions could have been bigger, just cos we are fat vegans

Tasty - Edit

We had lunch here on a busy day, so we had to wait pretty long, but the staff was friendly and later explained the situation (in a response). We had a sandwich with hummus and vegetables and it was qualitative good (everything was tasty), but it was mostly bread and we missed the greens.
We sat on the little, nice terrace and also the interior looked cosey.

Updated from previous review on 2017-09-02

Pros: Friendly staff, Cosey accoutrements

Cons: Lots of bread in comparison with the fillings

kafethea 03 Sep 2017 - Hi Nele,
We are so sorry to hear that you had bigger expectations. It was literally the busiest day we ever had, and we were only with the two of us. We really tried our best!
Regarding to your comment about the lunch options I think you might have misunderstood the menu. Beside the sandwich of the day we also have a quiche, salads, a smoothie bowl, pancakes, soups, yoghurt with homemade granola and oatmeal with fruit. Maybe we did not communicate this clearly enough, for which we are sorry! We hope to see you again! :) :)

NeleG 03 Sep 2017 - Hi,
We all have those chaotic days, so we must have come on the wrong moment ;)
Seems like we did misunderstand the options, we'll have to come back sometime to try your other dishes out.
Thank you for explaining the situation and I'll change it in my review.
Wish you lots of success in the future!

I tried the blueberry pancakes with fruit and they were so good! I totally recommend this place!

Best vegan experience! - Edit

I was really surprised to find such a nice place in Maastricht. It's a vegan coffee bar that feels like a common cozy living room. All the cakes are vegan (I tried a raw vegan mocca cheesecake and it was super good) and they have several savory food options as well. I also had the blueberry pancakes and they were to die for. The owners are super friendly and they also have a little bakery corner in the back where I bought a big warm bread. If you ever visit Maastricht you really have to try this place!

Pros: vegan cakes !!!!, super cozy atmosphere , caring staff

Cozy Corner Café - Edit

A comfortable place that serves coffee, tea, lemonade, cakes and pastries, but also pancakes and soup. The staff is friendly and informed about their products and vegan customer requests. I had sweet potatoe pancakes that were delicious, but quite pricy for the amount. I would return, but settle for a cake or hope they made the pancakes bigger and take those again.

Updated from previous review on 2017-01-18

Pros: Cozy atmosphere, Delicious foods and sweets

Cons: Portions should be bigger, Not vegan

Walhalla for vegans - Edit

A very cute coffee bar with only vegan options! It's original and delicious. They have plenty of savory options too, like vegan quiche, wraps, sandwiches, soup and pancakes. If you're a sweet tooth you're lucky as well. They bake (raw) vegan cakes every day. What I also really liked is that they did not use any leather in the business. Go visit!

Pros: No leather used in decorating the place, Homemade vegan cakes, In heart of the city center

Nice atmosphere, nice vegan cakes, friendly owners - Edit

I just went to this place today for some tea and vegan cake. I really like the atmosphere of the place. It is completely vegetarian and 90% vegan. The cake was very nice and we had a lovely chat with one of the owners. They just started, so they don't have lunch yet, but they say they will start offering salads and sandwiches soon. That will also be all vegetarian, and mostly vegan. I will come back for that :)

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Nice cake, Good atmosphere

Very nice and cozy place - Edit

Today we went to the new vegetarian/vegan lunchroom Kafethea. They serve vegan pastries at the moment and this was very good! I had a cupcake and my company had a vegan chocolate mint cake. The atmosphere is very relaxed en from next week they will serve lunch as well. So I am very interested in their lunch offers! Maastricht really needed this! Also the people who run the place are very nice! I am very happy with this.

Pros: nice vegan pastries, nice atmosphere
