Can anyone recommend a good place to stop for Breakfast near Hook of Holland?
In or near?
We are landing first thing and so can find somewhere there or make a short drive to find somewhere nice, we will be heading towards Leiden eventually.
You could look up the opening hours for these places in Hoek van Holland. www.iens.nl/restaurant/hoek-van-holland
And I really like breakfast at two different places in Rotterdam, very close together so you can easily have a look at both:
- Bagel Bakery (Schilderstraat) tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g188632-d1…
- Bazar (Witte de Withstraat) tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g188632-d7… > the first picture shows you the big breakfast, with egg, bread, toppings, yoghurt, fruits, and a 1000 hole sweet thin pancake with honey, coffee/tea, juice... all for less than 10 euros I believe.
BUT!! parking your car in central Rotterdam can be expensive. And in Leiden too. I don't know of any breakfast places in smaller towns near there with free parking, or at countryside cafes...
You may just want to bring some sandwiches if you want to save money, and do a big lunch in Leiden.
Or drive to Katwijk aan Zee and see if there are any beachside cafes there.
Anyway, bon apetit.Edited: 23 February 2014, 22:54
There's a La Place restaurant on the A13 near Delft at a service station on the Rijksweg. Perhaps drive there.
You may well want your extra hour in bed... but breakfast on board isn't bad. And once they start piping the "Don't worry be happy" song into your cabin you won't be able to get back to sleep anyway!
Really comprehensive helpful information, thank you very much.
Thank you, if we don't want to park up in town that sounds like a good option.
That's worth knowing, thank you, but if I only feel like a coffee and croissant £10 per head seems excessive! Do you know if there is an option to just buy individual items?
Number 3 is fine, you can choose one of them. Enjoy.
Re breakfast on the ferry - yes, you can just buy coffee and a croissant. You need to go to a different place for that - called the Barista Bar, from memory.
