Lokaal Koffie | The most fancy workplace in town
It’s Monday and that means (for the most of us); Back to work! Lokaal, first class coffee is situated in the Hofbogen and is probably one of the first well-designed coffee bars in Rotterdam.This little place is snuggled between restaurant, shops, and a bar just underneath the old iconic Hofplein station. It is small but big enough that you won’t get claustrophobic. The clean, minimalistic interior design is something that you can’t go wrong with. The wood with the gold elements gives the whole place a warm, cozy feel. Find your spot in the hidden nook and cranny, have a meeting at one of the tables or grab your spot at the bigger table. And another plus: they have a little magazine/newspaper stand, perfect if you need a tiny break. It does tend to get crowded during lunchtime, but then again, people need to eat. I’m always down for a cheese toastie with ketchup or a good breakfast with bread from Jordy’s bakery.Hungry for more? They also have a small selection of sweets! From carrot cake to muffins and other daily cakes and cookies. My favorite is the warm banana bread with maple syrup. That goes perfectly with the coffee from Giraffe coffee roasters.
You can find them here: Raampoortstraat 34 B, Rotterdam | www.lokaal-espresso.nl | Opening Hours: Monday – Friday from 900 till 1800 | Saturday from 1000 till 1700 & Sun from 1100 till 1700
Lokaal is not the biggest when it comes to space, but the bold interior design, first class coffee and lunch makes up for everything.
