A visit to Marienwaerdt Landgoedwinkel and Lunch at the Stappelbakker in Beesd

I met up with MadamE for a quick get-together and lunch a week ago. I have just arrived from Ibiza, Spain the night prior and MadamE was not sure if our meet will push through as I forgot to turn on my personal phone. This is what happens when you have 2 mobile phones (1 for work and the other one for personal).

So anyway I called her to inform we are set for the day. I am picking her up at Utrecht Centraal Station and we will go to Marienwaerdt in Beesd, a farm estate that has a pancake restaurant and a brassiere, and a gourmet organic store selling products that are grown and produced in the farm estate. I have been here many times.

Their best-selling item in the store I believe is the Honing Mosterd (Honey Mustard) sauce. They are really good.

Then we had lunch at the pancake restaurant—De Stappelbakker. We chose to sit at the outside terrace where we have the green views. We could hear the noise of the highway without seeing it. The place gives you the countryside feeling but at the same time you can hear the cars.

I chose a hearty tuna green salad and didn’t realize it is going to be huge so I shared it with her. MadamE went for pancakes. Ham, cheese and champignons. For wine, we chose the German Moezel white wine, chilled, from the Rhineland region. I’ve been to the Mosel River and it helps me reminisce of my beautiful trip there years ago.

Time flew so fast, we didn’t realize it was almost 4PM!

So yummy, this salad =)

In the Stappelbakker Pancake House: Lunch, wine and long conversations, they go together.

Marienwaerdt Landgoedwinkel sells organic products grown and produced in the estate. The Honey Mustard sauce is really good.
