Places Around Maastricht: the Foodmaker

Type of Place: Café
Location: Gubbelstraat 8, 6211 CE Maastricht NL, Near the Gemeente Maastricht

The Foodmaker is a medium sized, modern looking café located conveniently near the Maastricht Town Hall. It is open seven days a week: from 8:00 to 19:00 on Monday-Wednesday and Friday, 8:00 to 21:00 on Thursday, 9:00 to 18:00 Saturday, and 12:00 to 18:00 on Sunday. They served breakfast and lunch for both eat in and “take away” in addition to a pleasant selection of coffee and smoothie beverages. The macchiato latte is my favorite and will run you 2,55 euro; not unreasonable compared to other similar shops in Maastricht.

For the new expat or traveler, the biggest selling point of Foodmakers is their free wi-fi. To my knowledge it is the only café with free wi-fi in the center of Maastricht. They are rarely busy (lunch is their busy time), so it’s easy to hang out with a coffee for a few hours. The shop cunningly has no outlets available, so remember to charge up before you arrive.

    The Foodmaker has now moved to the Markt, and I think it’s a lot better! They sell fantastic Brownies.
