Some friends you only see a couple of times a year but when you’re finally together it feels like the last time was only yesterday. Ever since we met while interning at a local Dutch newspaper it’s been that way between this friend and I. Besides our addiction for reading (Harry Potter 🙂 ) and writing, we also share a deep love for photography, traveling and good food. As she lives in the northern province of Holland and I live in the South, we always make it a point to meet somewhere halfway for a nice lunch or dinner to catch up and talk about our upcoming travel plans. This time The Hague was on the itinerary.
Juni, June in English, is a well-known catering company and lunchroom in the centre of The Hague. Even the American we asked for directions knew exactly what we were looking for. After a 10 minute walk from the train station we arrived at our cozy but packed destination. Tip for next time: make a reservation beforehand. Luckily we could wait by the window, with a hot cup of special Juni blended tea, for a table to free up.
Besides the friendly staff serving delicious teas and coffee there’s also healthy smoothies and a large variety of tasty sandwiches, salads, eggs, soup and quiche on the menu. Most ingredients used are organic. Already had lunch? They also serve afternoon tea or you can just have a piece of the many delicious cakes on the counter. Unfortunately we liked the name of the Roald Dahl chocolate cake more than the cake itself, but confessedly, we are a bit spoiled in the chocolate cake department 😉 The clubsandwiches, teas and coffee we had were excellent though! We left The Hague with stuffed round bellies and a new date already planned.
Juni’s open 7 days a week all year long (not just in June 😉 ) for breakfast and lunch. If you’re ever in The Hague definitely drop by. Afterall a lunchroom that sells Tony’s Chocolonely can’t be anything but good right?! 🙂
