During my trip to Eindhoven at the beginning of January 2016, my sister and I where walking around the city center of Eindhoven trying to find a place where to have lunch. It was a Sunday, and for our luck, everything seemed to be closed. After walking for minutes, we found “Bar Bistro Calypso“.
The place has a “vintage, minimalist, hipster” style. It’s also pretty relaxed. Something really nice was the fact that there was a dj on the corner playing nice music, that was something different and something that I really liked a lot.
As expected, the menu was completely in Dutch. Thanks to my Duolingo Dutch classes, I could understand some words such as Ontbijt, Sap, Brood, Ham, etc… In conclusion, we decided to go for the Calypso ontbijt!
It was amazing! Is not that the ingredients where something out of this world, but it was more about the presentation of the dish. I truly appreciate the details and this plate was great. We both loved it.
The wooden board had on it different types of bread, 2 cupcakes, a piece of matured cheese Genneper Hoeve, a slice of serrano ham, a piece of soft goat cheese, homemade vegetable, 2 boiled eggs, homemade jams cube, butter and slices of raw vegetables.
“We definitely had a good time in there, and also a nice meal…”
If you’re planning to travel to Eindhoven, this bistro might worth your visit!
