When the noontime sun is high this "Grand Cafe" style place is ideally located on the shady corner of the main market square.

The lunchtime menu offers the usually snacky stuff such as Tostis, Broodjes and Uitsmijters as well as the usual range of bar nibbles. If you really want to splash out there's also an a-la-carte section with ribs, steaks and seafood but judging by the prices I reckon you can expect substantial portions.

Service, certainly on the terrace, is informal and is probably equally so if eating indoors.

Favorite Dish: I just opted for a hot sandwich for my light lunch - the "Gonzales Special" which was a tasty crisply-baked roll oozing with melted cheese, roast peppers and jalapenos peppers.

Accompanied by a cup of coffee the over 7 Euro bill I thought was a bit steep for what I had but it was OK and the waitress was friendly.
