Dutch Apple of My Eye

"It's as American as apple pie!" is an expression often heard, but we Americans don't exactly have the exclusive on this delicious flaky pastry.  Have you heard of Dutch apple pie?  Okay, maybe you have.  But surely you haven't heard of Café Kobus Kuch, where the best appeltaart in all of the Netherlands is baked and served daily.

Café Kobus Kuch (whose website, unfortunately, is only in Dutch) is located in the picturesque city of Delft, in the town square called Beestenmarkt near the historic city center.  Feel free to bring the kids here to eat, as the café's outdoor seating is spacious and away from vehicle traffic.  You'll find a delightful lunch menu of Dutch cuisine, such as a variety of fresh broodjes, fried eggs, fish, and soup.

But let's get back to that pie.  Just look at that photo above.  Freshly baked, warm apple tart with a pile of thick whipped cream on top - it's quite famous in the city of Delft, and claims to be the best in the country.  And yes, my family will personally vouch for that claim.  It was deeeliiicious.

Café Kobus Kuch is open Monday - Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.; Friday - Saturday from 9:30 to 2:00 a.m.; and Sunday from 11:00 to 1:00 a.m.

Visit Delft!  It's a gorgeous city!


  1. Thanks for the follow I am now following you back!

  2. One of my best friends is Dutch and we went to Delft together once, but I missed this apple pie. Big mistake, obviously! Have to catch it next time :)
