Café Top 100
Despite the ever-increasing popularity among locals, De Poshoorn had to work hard to maintain its Top 100 ranking over the years. ‘Change your look,’ was an auditor’s advice in 2016. ‘Because this is a café that belongs in the Top 100.’
The young new owner, Maastricht restaurateur Yves Mullenders, didn’t have to think twice. In 2017, he took over the ‘urban tavern’ from its previous owner. Together with his friend and up-and-coming designer Françoise Oostwegel, he gave the tavern a modern make-over. ‘With respect for the old,’ he stresses.
The new Poshoorn doubles as an inn, featuring modern rooms and an extensive breakfast menu to tempt well-rested guests in the morning. Both the lunch and dinner menus feature a variety of simple and affordable regional dishes, many of which are prepared with ingredients from local suppliers. The vegetables are from Veers oet Wyck, the cheeses are from ‘t Rommedoeke, and the meats – including the ‘best black pudding in Maastricht – are from Joep Schürmann, the butcher just down the street.
De Poshoorn also has an extensive drink and snack menu. On warm evenings, guests can enjoy one of the eighteen beers on tap or order one of the hundred craft beers on the lovely outdoor terrace. These beers can also be enjoyed indoors, of course.
Tip for wine-lovers: De Poshoorn partnered with Sauter Wijnen to create its own house wine: Cuvée Yves, named after the new owner, is available in red and white.
