No fuss at café SAAR, but simply good food and drinks.

A cozy spot just outside the busy city center. 

With a great love for cheese and natural wine.

Wherever possible, we choose to collaborate with small

suppliers that cultivate sustainable and clean produce.

We work alongside the seasons, creating pure and concentrated flavors. 

That’s how we keep it simple, yet special; with quality,

love and attention in the leading role. 

 All of this on the most beautiful corner of Utrecht. At least, we think so.


34 seats inside & 16 on our semi covered terrace.

Sandri, Taco, Judith, Joren & Rive behind the stove.
