Sometimes the only way we can really get a taste of other cultures is to get out and explore. While we might not be able to board a plane to, say, Holland, we can still enjoy an authentic experience right here at home if we know where to look. If you’ve always dreamed of traveling to the Netherlands, set your GPS for perhaps the most charming place to dine in Springfield, Missouri.
If you’ve never had a pannenkoek, the restaurant describes them as a “12-inch open-faced crepe-style pancake.”
But before you even browse the menu, take a moment to soak up the ambiance of this quaint Missouri restaurant that offers glimpses of Holland through its decor.
If you’re feeling chatty, try to snag a seat at the bar, where you’re sure to run into others relaxing with a drink and a bite.
Why not bring your pup along on warm days? The dog-friendly beer garden offers a chill vibe and an idyllic spot for a meal.
While the ambiance may draw you in, the food (and drink) is going to keep you coming back for more. Sip a hot coffee or tea or a cold cocktail to get started.
What’ll you have? If it’s your first visit, you might want to try Dutch pancakes for which the restaurant is known.
You can have a simple pannenkoek, which comes topped with powdered sugar, or go for something more decadent, like the Death By Chocolate Dutch pancake.
Breakfast all day makes it easy to indulge in other favorites, too, including Belgian waffles, scrambles, and cinnamon French toast.
Van Gogh’s Eeterie serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Take a peek at the shareables – a gouda cheese board, for example – that promise a tasty way to start your meal.
From a burger to vegan curry mac, the menu’s bursting with options for every taste.
Reservations are not required. However, if you decide to make them (which you can do online), please make sure you do so at least four hours before your intended visit time.
