This is NextDoor
You’ll find some nice hidden shops and restaurants on the part of the Willemstraat that lies between de Kleine Berg and the Wilhelminaplein. Brunch shop NextDoor is one of those surprising hotspots. Led by Demi Mertens and Hanne-Mieke van Galen, an all-day brunch concept applies.
All day brunch concept
Before NextDoor opened its doors, a different restaurant was located here also led by Demi. “We always had good contact with our neighbors GoodHabitz. When the previous restaurant closed, GoodHabitz came up with the idea of taking over the restaurant. And that's how NextDoor (by GoodHabitz) started. We have thought long and hard about the right concept for our restaurant. Ultimately, we opted for an all-day brunch concept, where the enjoyment of delicious dishes and drinks throughout the day is our number one priority.”
At NextDoor, the bar is the heart of the space. Around it, you will find cozy seats and high tables with stools. There’s a cocktail bar downstairs that can be rented for a private party or a drink. NextDoor has a homey atmosphere and thanks to its interior you immediately feel at ease. “In addition to our brunch guests, many people also find NextDoor a great place to work. It is a comfortable and quite central. There’s free Wi-Fi and enough electricity points to connect your laptop to.”During the weekends, there are also many families at NextDoor. “Having brunch is great fun, but how nice is it to be able to take your kids with you, knowing they can play all afternoon? We’ve set up a beautiful place for them to play and have fun, so parents can also enjoy themselves even more.”
In terms of dishes, there is something on the menu for everyone. There’s different variations of avocado on toast, American pancakes, sandwiches, salads, and of course some children's dishes. “For brunch, we also have several brunch cocktails on the menu. Think of variations of Mimosas or a Bloody Mary. And after brunch, thanks to the atmosphere, it is even more fun to stick around for a drink and some bar bites. The music gets a little louder during the day on the weekend and we really turn it into something festive. In addition to our brunch cocktails, we have an extensive selection of good wines and beers.” In the bar, we can also find some local friends: coffee from Lucifer Coffee Roasters and a state-of-the-art Spirit coffee machine from Kees van der Westen, beers from the Stadsbrouwerij and pastries from Pinkie Patisserie. That sounds like a recipe for a tasty brunch and more!
