It is always nice when you have had a good experience at a place and you can't wait to take your friends there. Well, doing that at Van Gaalen Kaasmakerij was clearly not such a good idea, what an embarrassment. In Sept 2012 we had a wonderful visit to van Gaalen. On Youth Day we decided to take a good friend with us to do a cheese tasting & purchase and enjoy good coffee on the terrace. Nothing was the same, the cheese tasting was dreadful, the lady made us feel like such a nuisance that our guest actually felt too embarrased to ask which cheese to taste.
Then the long awaiting coffee, after 100km on our Harley's on such a crisp winters morning we were really looking forward to some lovely freshly brewed, hot coffee. Our coffee was brought more than 20 minutes after we ordered it by one of the cleaners, our waiter disappeared. One cup had to be replaced as all the coffee was shaken out of te cup. Needless to say the coffee was luke to cold. It took just as long to get the bill and to pay. Nice was our surprise when we arrived home to find the expensive cheese was past it's sell-by date and not edible. Van Gaalen won't see me again, and I will ensure to spread the review.
