In a trendy neighborhood in Utrecht you’ll find HOOI, a high quality lunchroom with many vegetarian options. Almost everything on their menu comes straight from organic bakeries, local farms and herb gardens. Vegetarians, vegans and people who eat gluten free are welcome for breakfast and lunch at HOOI. But you can bring your carnivorous friends without feeling guilty because they also have some meat and fish items on the menu.
For breakfast you can go for banana pancakes, overnight oats or buckwheat waffles just to name a few. For lunch they have delicious sandwiches with for example hummus and grilled vegetables, red beet and horseradish spread with local goat cheese or apple-pear syrup with old cheese on raisin bread.
They also have a picknickbasket so you can have a healthy picnic in the nearby Wilhelminapark.
I recommend their high tea where you get spoiled with soup, sandwiches, cakes and unlimited tea refills. We had this carrot coconut soup with ginger as a starter of our high tea and several vegetarian sandwiches after that. And the highlight, as with any high tea, were the sweets at the end. We got brownies with cranberries, lemon cheesecake and vegan carrot cake. All homemade!
