About the caféCREA Café is the place to take a break or get together after class. The café is also the foyer of the CREA Theatre and CREA Music halll.
Food and drinkWe offer an extensive lunch menu of sandwiches, croques monsieurs, homemade soup, yoghurt and several snacks. You can choose out of 25 types of tea or our special coffee blends from Wijs & Zonen: our CREA Café melange, which is rather spicy, or the milder Yauco Selecto Original from Puerto Rico (ask at the bar). Our house wines are the Spanish Artero from La Mancha. We serve seasonal beers and we always have Grolsch lager, Grolsch Weizen, Palm and La Chouffe on draft.
