A great welcome back to Netherlands. Apr 04, 2017
After various setbacks (caused mostly by my own stupidity) I finally arrived at Hoek van Holland about 0800 on a weekday morning in April. There is no rail station at the port itself which surprised me a little but a bus ferries you to the train station in nearby Schiedam.

My onward ticket was good for all day and so I thought I would seek out a place for a beer or a "glass of breakfast" as I like to call it. I did not have to look too hard as I spotted Cafe - Restaurant 't Centrum a short distance away, literally not 100 yards from the station main entrance.

I wandered in to find I had the place entirely to myself which was to be fairly much the case for the couple of very pleasant hours I spent there. At one point another guy came in for a coffee and a read of his newspaper but that was about it.

I was greeted by a charming barman who spoke perfect English which seems to be industry standard for waiting staff in the Netherlands.

As well as an extensive selection of bottled beers they had two offerings on draught, the fairly common Jupiler and another one which I had not tried before called Hertog Jan so I decided on that. The barman informed me it was actually Belgian which is hardly surprising as you are not too far from the Belgian border here. It was very pleasant so I decided to have another, and another and.......... well, you get the picture. I think I ended up having about half a dozen all told.

Cafe - Restaurant 't Centrum is well appointed and very clean and tidy including the "facilities" which were spotless when I had occasion to use them. It features a large mural on one wall of a stereotypical Dutch scene (canal and windmills) and also a very fine chandalier.

Although I did not eat there, I did look at what was a rather extensive menu which is apparently cooked in an open kitchen which was as immaculately clean as the rest of the premises. I do always like an open kitchen as it shows they have nothing to hide.

In summary, 't Centrum is an excellent example of a typical Dutch cafe - restaurant and is very conveniently situated if you are travelling through the station in Schedam and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
