Have you ever been wanting to go to a place for a long time but you haven’t got around to it? Well, that definitely is the case with this hotspot Eline and I (finally) visited. Eline and I hadn’t seen each other in some time because she was busy finishing her thesis and I have been having the weirdest schedule. So we decided on a day where we would just walk around The Hague and have lunch at Pistache Café. In this blog post you can read all about this hotspot!
PISTACHE CAFÉ | Prinsestraat 134, The Hague
Pistache Café has been on my hotspots to visit list for a really long time. Lotte had been there a couple of times and said that I would really enjoy it as well. When Eline and I arrived at Pistache Café I actually recognized the street it is in because that’s also where Collectiv. Concept Store is. But I never walked all the day through the end of Prinsestraat, where Pistache Café is located. If I did, I would have gone there a long time ago. Anyways, we walked in, sat down in a cute corner and immediately had a look at the menu. They serve everything from breakfast, sandwiches, salads, panini’s and small bites. The explanations of the dishes on the menu is so funny.
“Our mission is to provide clean, organic, fresh and tasty food for both healthy and naughty eaters. Sit down, relax and find satisfaction in our modern day comfortable lunchroom setting.”
First, how cute is the name? I can tell you, the interior really matches the name because you can see the color ‘pistache’ everywhere you look. Besides that, the cafe has a very lovely jungle vibe to it (something I really like) with lots of plants and the leaves on the menu. They have created a lot of places to sit. You can sit outside, in the cute corner inside, in the window (so you have a pretty view) or at one of the other tables inside Pistache Café.
After looking at the menu for a little bit, we ordered our drinks. The drink part of the menu is so large. You can order anything from smoothies to lemonade and wine to gin & tonic. Eline decided to go for a small smoothie and I got the spiced lemon & rose lemonade (which tastes a lot like a mocktail I shared).
For the food I thought it was pretty hard to make a decision. I was debating between the French toast and a mozzarella panini. Since I wasn’t feeling like getting something sweet, I went for the mozzarella panini (which also came with a pesto dip). Eline actually also got a panini but the tuna melt version. Both of them were so tasty but since they were pretty basic, next time we would also like to try the French toast or waffles.
You can definitely find me here again, but then maybe for breakfast or a small bite and enjoy that outside. Since the place is very photogenic, you can also take some great Instagram photos here (outside they have marble tables!). If you are interested in visiting Pistache Café, you can find them at Prinsestraat 134 in The Hague. If you are visiting Pistache Café, you should also check all of the cute shops located in this street as well! Do you ever visit The Hague? Would you want to go to Pistache Café?
