I was looking for somewhere with a good vegetarian selection, and wasn't disappointed. Probably around a third of the menu is vegetarian or vegan - I had a very nice tempeh and tofu dish, followed up with a "triple chocolate hug". Would definitely come here again if I'm back in Nijmegen.

De Plak is probably one of the best places to eat in Nijmegen. Apart from the usual menu they have the menu of the week which offers variety. As a vegetarian,I always enjoy my meal there.

This place has a big menu for people who would like to have a lot of vegetarian or vegan options, but if you are really keen on eating meat: no worries. you can do that here as well. Avarage price for a meal is about 15 euros.

A gezellig place that serves great vegetarian food which carnivores will like as well as good steaks. Look out for the vegetable pie and the kaasgehakt (cheese balls).

De Plak has been around for ages and provided great food to many many many students and inhabitants in Nijmegen. Our previous visit was 10+ years ago and we wondered why we did not go that often in the past... because the food is great and inexpensive.

Nice atmosphere and retro look. Easy going staff and menu. Unfortunately some dishes we'd selected were finished. The bread was finished as we got some old sliced bread and buns, yet is costs 4 euro. Nice cheese ball.
