When looking for breakfast we ended up in De Poshoorn, mostly because they served eggs benedict, which is my favorite breakfast in the world.

The interior is very beautiful and references the name of the place with old mailboxes on the wall. I also loved the beautiful bar with lots of beers on tap. We sat at an old workers bench, while skulls of dead game were looking down up us, really special.

So far so good. What followed must have been the biggest disappointment of my life. When my eggs benedict arrived, I immediately saw those were not the real deal. I don’t know what sauce was served beside my eggs, but surely that was no sauce hollandaise. It mostly resembled mayonnaise and tasted dreadfully. The poached eggs were a true disgrace. The yolk of the egg wasn’t even fluid! Since I was hungry I ate it all, but I really cannot understand which cook would dare to serve this dish and call it eggs benedict.

My companions had ordered the full option breakfast and were equally disappointed. The granola wasn’t home made, the scrambled egg portion was way to small, no value for money whatsoever.

Very disappointed. Just don’t have breakfast here, period. I think you are better off just having a beer or something.
