Organic and vegetarian Hotspot Café Helene in Bergen op Zoom. You have to know where they are, but once you found it, this is the perfect hotspot.
I had a date with an old colleague in Bergen op Zoom last Saturday. She asked me to search for a nice restaurant. After some searching on Google I found organic and vegetarian cafe Helene. On the second floor of book store Quist in Bergen op Zoom you will find this cute cafe. You walk up the stairs in the book store and arrive at the counter. They also sell a lot of cooking and baking books here of which they get their inspiration of course. If you walk on a bit more you will enter the lunch cafe.
In this nice lunch cafe you can have a sandiwich, cake or soup during the winter. The sandwiches of the day are super fresh and on the board next to the counter it says everything about the ingredients. But once you are back at your table you forgot what ingredients belonged to which sandwich, but the owner is very happy to tell you all about it at your table. She even tells us that she uses ingredients from her own garden. All ingredients are picked very carefully which is what I like about this concept from cafe Helene. All ingredients are fresh and as organic as possible. Even for the coffee and tea they like to use direct trading. To be sure all ingredients are good and fresh owner Caroline likes to go to the farmers to pick up the products. Or she gets it form her own garden or the garden of her friends.
The entire menu is vegetarian. People still consume too much and to easily meat and there is not enough attention for the well being of animals, they say at Helene. That is also why they have a lot of vegan dishes on the menu and they also have a gluten free cake everyday.
I enjoyed a lovely cake with fruit at Helene. But besides that I also saw a lot of other cake and brownies. And you can enjoy it fully, because all cake is free from refined sugars. So I would deifinitely recommend visiting this place once.
Besides the fact you can eat very good with Helene and enjoy your time they also organise a lot of things. Once per month they have a read out breakfast, every once in a while they have a special Saturday breakfast with music and once per 2 months they do yoga in the middle of the books and they finish with breakfast.
And Caroline gets up very early in the morning to bake the cakes, or at least a lot of them to take them as fresh as possible to the cafe. That is what called having a heart for your business.

You can find cafe Helene on top of the book store Quist at the Fortuinstraat 24 in Bergen op Zoom.
