One of my favorite breakfast and brunch restaurants in the Netherlands also has a branch in Tilburg: Anne & Max. And I don’t only like them because of the name, but also because their great menu with many vegetarian and vegan options. They have a great ‘Breakfast for 2’ platter, with various types of bread, savory and sweet toppings, scrambled eggs with bacon or hot-smoked Scottish salmon, yogurt with crunchy granola, and a juice of your choice. You can also order a vegan version of their breakfast platter. And you can also order all kinds of breakfast and brunch dishes a-la-carte.

Dwars, the hotdog restaurant on the Korvelseweg, is also open for brunch and lunch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They open at 10am, and although you can also order their hotdogs throughout the day, I’d recommend one of their brunch dishes. The red velvet waffle with frosting, blueberries and pistache crumble (Red Rose) is one of my favorites. But they’ve also got waffle and fried chicken or brioche toast with smashed avocado and scrambled egg for the lovers of a savory brunch.
