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.
For delicious yoghurt products go to Yoghurt Barn.

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.
5211 ME Den Bosch
A restaurant in the middle of Den Bosch, a family restaurant which was started by the grandparents. Two of their sons took over and now one of their daughters runs the show.
They have an excellent menu card with lots of choice. Perfect for lunch, dinner or cake with coffee. From ‘kroketten’ to sandwiches to tournedos, there’s plenty of choice.
Brasserie Top also serves the famous “Bossche bol” from De Groot.

Salon de Roosekrans
They have 2 venues and give workshops to make chocolate or “Bossche bollen”. Their signature pastry is the “Bossche koek”. They have the original recipes of 2 pastry chefs and make and sell their own versions of “Bossche koek”. These recipes go back to 1794, talk about historic recipes!
We had “Bossche koek” and a “Bossche bol” here. Both are delicious. For pastries Salon de Roosekrans is a top choice. They have a lovely terrace.
