A Bold discovery
This weekend my mom and I discovered this great breakfast, lunch or dinner place in my hometown Maastricht, the Brandweer (The Fire station). As the name suggests it’s located in the canteen of the former fire station near the city center. I love it when these kind of vacant industrial buildings get a totally new function instead of breaking it down. Especially when they keep some of the old atmosphere and mix it with a Scandinavian vintage style. You still find the tiles of the canteen on the walls and they kept the old canteen floor. The huge glass front reminds me of the garage doors of the fire station. You can just imagine the firetrucks riding into the building. Not to forget, they serve some delicious pie from one of the best bakeries in Maastricht. And most of the ingredients they use are organic. So when you are in Maastricht it’s really worthwile going a little bit out of the direction of the city center. When you park your car at the former Van Gend en Loos area you will probably pass by the Fire station on your way to the city center.
