We have a confession to make. We visited Betty Blue more than once. Many times. The café offers breakfast, brunch, and lunch. But the real reason you want to visit this gem in the old part of town, just a stone’s throw away from Nieuwmarkt, is —naturally— cakes. It is a busy place, so don’t be surprised if you don’t find a table immediately. You will be greeted by enthusiastic, tourist-friendly waiters — the locals might roll their eyes in slight irritation as some of them do not speak Dutch. Lovey-dovey couples, friends meeting for a catching-up afternoon, and families will all find a place and a cake at Betty Blue.
