Kafethea is a coffee shop/bakery in the city center of Maastricht (the Netherlands). It is often referred to as a vegan bakery, but it also serves non-vegan (vegetarian) pancakes, cakes and pastry.
This is from a visit a couple of months ago, at the beginning of Summer.
On orders at the counter. Everyhing is vegan, except for the things noted as ‘not vegan’ (on the menu on wall behind the counter). There were unfortunately no pastry/cake options when we visited (one vegetarian quiche at counter).
So we ordered a pancake, with chocolate sauce and vegan yoghurt and oreos (9€). And a latte with coconut milk (3,50€) and a coconut milk smoothie with banana (4€, normally also with mango, but they were out of mango).
It took quite some time for the pancake to be served. It was nice, although quite dense and ‘heavy’.
We didn’t really fance the atmosphere at Kafethea. The interior is decorated with a mixture of old and new furniture. It was not really comfortable. Lots of light coming in in the front section (large windows), but the windows were very dirty. There is also a small terrace on side on the street level.
There were many students (we guess) working with their laptops.
Toilet is in the back and was lit with a red light. It was a bit shabby and disorderly, and only had a wet towel to dry one’s hands. Ew, no thanks.
All in all: a bit disappointing. We had hoped to find more vegan options in a more comfortable and cleaner setting.
