I met with a friend for a drink here. We had a ginger/lemon tea (quite spicy, strong taste) and Coco Loco coffee (coffee with coconut something, very soft and nice). Nice place to sit down, although a bit noisy.

Barista Cafe is for me the meeting place in Alphen aan den Rijn. The place to enjoy a good cup of coffee or have a (light) lunch. Attentive staff and nice atmosphere

Barista is a nice looking coffee bar/ lunch restaurant with some +'s and some downsides.. Plusses are the great coffee's and the homemade cookies, the look and atmosphere are welcoming and friendly, and the fact that its about the only nice spot in the 'ground zero-like' state of the surroundings on this side of Alphen at the moment.

One of the best places to have a real nice café in Alphen a/d Rijn. They are renovating the city centre and at the moment it is a bit of a mess. Here you can sit inside or outside and sit close to the water front. Some nice and fresh smoothies and a variety of fresh sandwiches.

This is the original Barista Cafe (there's one more in Alphen and a bunch of others elsewhere in The Netherlands). They serve great coffee and pastries. You want to try the apple pie:-).

The location is temporarily poor but what we understand soon to be much better. The area is under renovation to create waterfront view and more recreational locations. Close to the shopping center makes it a nice stop in between. The young staff is working a bit chaotic sometimes. the coffee is perfect though so it's absolutely worth visiting. Quality is... More

If you want good quality coffee and a nice atmosphere this is the place to go! The owners are the most nice people and always come and have a chat with everyone.
