Our restaurant is opened every day. You can visit us for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee with cake or a nice drink, such as a cocktail, glass of wine, special beer or just a soda. We also offer a high tea, wine or beer!
The menu in our restaurant is inspired by the life in the abbey. We love to cook with local products from the province Drenthe and we even have our own organic garden from which our cooks harvest their products. We also love to cook with Trappist beer which gives an extra dimension to the food.
In the restaurant, there are different spaces to sit and relax. You can take place in the front with a view on the main street of the village or in one of the cosy corners or next to the fire place!
