Café de Poort
“Ever since I started my bachelor's degree, Public Administration and Organizational Science and café De Poort have been inextricably linked. Between lectures I like to drink a cup of coffee with friends on the sun-drenched terrace on the Ledig Erf. At the end of a long day of lectures and tutorials, this is also the perfect place to have a drink or eat well.”

De Ontdekking
“When I moved to Utrecht a year and a half ago, I immediately started looking for nice coffee shops. Although places like Onz and Gys were well received, De Ontdekking takes the cake as far as I'm concerned”

Ping pong club
“To be honest, I've only been there once, just before all the catering industry closed again, but it was certainly worth repeating.”

Green Oasis

Coffeebar Jazzmans Minneartbuilding
“The café is located in the Minnaert building and looks out over the botanical gardens. In spring, you can sit here in the sun on the terrace after or between your classes.”

  • By Naoual

“As I write this, I am sitting in Gys drinking coffee. Gys is therefore very suitable to work on school or something else.”

Foodtruck Broodje Ben
“Who doesn’t know Boodje Ben? Whether it be by the Science Park or at the Oudegracht, Boodje Ben offers unlimited choices of sandwiches so you’ll never be bored or run out of choice. 21 is my personal favourite, the pine nuts, mango and chicken just blend so well together.”
