The owner of this characteristic establishment loves the rich history of his building. And its near surroundings. Most items on the menu refer to the central square or its side streets. A free history lesson is your reward when ordering a Broodje Bommen Berend (referring to the maniac who shot thousands of canon balls at the city walls) or a Broodje Stadhuis. If you prefer fish instead of meat (Bommen Berend) or cheese (Stadhuis), go for the delicious Broodje Ome Loeks, where a centuries old family recipe is the secret magical touch to the homemade mackerel filling. De Kosterij is also one of the best places in town to catch some sunrays, at least if your aiming for an outdoor terrace with a view. Although this historical tavern has 250 (!) seats to choose from, they fill up early on sunny days.
