De Postkamer Grand Cafe

This lovely cafe is located in the village of Spakenberg Netherlands. The village was once a thriving fishing community. But like many coastal cities in the Netherlands it was frequently destroyed by storms and floods. When the great Zuider Zee was enclosed by dikes these villages were no longer destroyed. In this area entire new areas of land were built up but the fishing was no more. The great fishing boats are still here and used for touring and fun. This cafe is adjacent to the old harbor. Here I had what was undoubtedly the best apple pie anywhere. I've eaten apple pie in Julian California which I'd supposed to be some of the best. But this was ten times better. Have a meal or at least have a coffee and a slice of pie.
