Type of Place: Café
Location: Glacisweg 26, Maastricht
I’ve probably written about Coffeelovers before, but it seemed best to mention my newest writing place: the Coffeelovers St. Pieters. Coffeelovers is, of course, a chain of cafes in the Netherlands not unlike Starbucks in the United States. They have good, but very strong coffee, and tasty desserts. The St. Pieters location is along the edge of St. Pietersburg, in the “old” part of Maastricht. A lot more convenient for me.
The St. Pieter Coffeelovers is a cozy, yet modern cafe with maybe a dozen tables and a little outdoor seating. Unlike the larger restaurant in the Ceramique area, they do not have a full menu, but there is a small selection of cheesecakes, sandwiches, and usually a soup available. All food and beverages can be ordered at the counter and the staff busses your table when you leave. The smaller size is nice for just having a cup of coffee (or tchaipuccio) and typing on your computer or reading a book. Personally I find the staff friendlier than the larger location as well.
Coffeelovers St. Pieters is open Mondays – Fridays from 9 am to 6 pm and Saturday – Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. There are several other Coffeelovers in Maastricht and one in Eindhoven. Visit their website for more information.
