The cozy establishment seemed so welcoming after an afternoon of chilly exploration in the historic center of Maastricht. Since it was very early in the evening the place was only lightly occupied and we settled in at the bar where a friendly bar-tender kept us company as she performed her duties.
The cafe offered up other surprises also. It is housed in what was Maastricht’s original 13th century town hall. City government moved on to later more grand Town Halls and the structure was used for other purposes to finally end up centuries later as the home of Au Mouton Blanc. How wonderful is that!
I had the most yummy, flavorful French Onion Soup. Definitely one of the best I have had in a very long time! It was covered with lots of strong, melted cheese covering a robust, onion soup within which a hunk of French bread soaked up the deep rich flavors.
