A Restaurant Over A Labyrinth: Views, Weather And Food All Delight…

After our tour of the North caves in Maastricht several years ago,  we were looking for a bite of lunch.

Luckily we didn’t have to go far because there was a café / restaurant right next to the office for the cave tickets.

The hill overlooks the city of Maasticht and zooming in with my camera gives views d the churches and most prominent landmarks.

We all had an excellent lunch of pancakes and toasted sandwiches. The café was busy, I think not only with tourists visiting the caves but also those who have been visiting the fort nearby and local who just find this an excellent spot to relax, enjoy the view and enjoy a coffee.

The terrace fills up and empties in waves, and I try and take my photographs in the quiet moments as to exclude photographs of other people’s children on my blog as much as possible. The kids loved the tour of the caves but are not up to a long walk around the fort today; they have the swimming pool back at the holiday park more in mind. We like to combine our days as “half-half” as possible. Half sight-seeing and half back-at-home-relaxing. This plan of action also makes life easier for me too, a little walking and then a good rest. The weather has been fantastic, so we’ve been lucky… and good food and an excellent view to enjoy in this weather are the icing on the cake.
