Where to eat in Tilburg

Tilburg is a fun city in the south of The Netherlands. It’s a favorite town for people to go shopping, or a city trip. Since Tilburg has the venue 013 where artists come to perform, it’s easy to combine a day out with a concert. In this blog I will list our popular places to eat in Tilburg.

Options to eat in Tilburg

The combination of Tilburg having a university and being placed in Noord-Brabant province, makes for plenty of options to eat in Tilburg. A university in a city means lots of students making for a vibrant night life and plenty of cheap(er) places to eat. Noord-Brabant is a province in the south, known for it’s Burgundian lifestyle, which makes it a paradise for foodies.

One course of the savory side of the high tea

We had a lovely high tea here and found the food excellent. There were several courses to the high tea, savory as well as sweet. The presentation was on spot and the flavors good. A nice touche was that you got to pick you’re own petit fours in a large ‘green house’ like display cabinet.

We’ve eaten already a few times here over the years. First time I ate here with Paul a long time ago and we always remembered that they had different flavors of satay. Then I “found” it again years later with a friend and since then Paul and I have been back a few times.
