Where to eat in Den Bosch

A city I found boring as a teenager, I rather went to Eindhoven. Now I don’t understand anymore why I found it boring. It’s such a fun city to shop and stroll around in! Here are a few good places to eat in Den Bosch.

Options to eat in Den Bosch

Den Bosch has so many options to have a good meal. Furthermore the famous pastry “Bossche bol” originated here. With so many options in one city, where best to go? Well, with a friend I have tried out all the places in the blog over the years.

It’s a chain in The Netherlands and I love them. I’ve been twice to the one in Den Bosch. We went for some fresh drinks and yoghurt in between. However they’re also perfect for breakfast, lunch or a high tea.

Banketbakkerij Jan de Groot

The place for the true “Bossche bol”. There are many places that sell chocolate bolls, but this is the one with the real “Bossche bol”. Jan de Groot senior invented the “Bossche bol” way back. They sell “Bossche bollen” in their pastry shop and lunchroom, but also to a number of other places in Den Bosch.

My friend wanted to eat the real one, so we did. I’m not a fan of whipped cream so I had a croissant. Both were delicious.

For the real deal and the best “Bossche bollen” pay a visit to Banketbakkerij Jan de Groot. Bossche bollen aren’t the only thing they sell.

Brownies & Downies

A chain which employs people with Down syndrome. The one in Den Bosch serves lunch and snacks. Their motto is ‘pure is perfect’, they see their workers as pure and they work with fresh products which they consider as pure. They served sandwiches, soups, salads, cakes, pancakes and brownies.

I just love their products and that they give people a chance who don’t get that much of a chance with other companies. So go visit Brownies & Downies.
