Tired after a whole day of shopping? The bartenders of Het Lokaal prepare the most delicious Italian coffee for you. Just take a sit outside in the backyard and enjoy. They also have lovely traditional ice cream or try their fruit smooties!

Scoop of ice cream



Het Lokaal - serving the season, is a bit hidden at the middle of the Nieuwe Binnenweg. I found this place not long ago, but when I found it I was happily surprised. It’s a small store and it offers seasonal products. Like in summer you can eat American pancakes and in winter hotchpotch (a typical Dutch winter diner). But you can always go there for a delicious cup of Italian coffee, fruit smooty or scoop of ice cream.

Soulful Sundays in the backyard



In the backyard of Het Lokaal there’s a small terrace with couches to relax. Even when it’s raining you can sit outside, because they have made a roof of glass above the whole garden. In summertime Het Lokaal organizes small events here, like the Soulful Sundays. Local DJ’s are playing live music and sometimes they organize a vintage market. Many different types of people come to this place; young, old, families with children and people from different cultures. So if you would like to mingle with the various people from Rotterdam, then you definitely must go to this place and enjoy the sociability and taste the lovely delights.
