There is a new, cool healthy food spot in town and it’s conveniently located en route from/to the station and city center of Groningen. Did I say healthy? It’s basically the best place to satisfy either your healthy, as well as your sinful cravings, let us explain:
Finding Strawberry is easy since the large windows give the place an open look and feel to it and entice you to walk straight in. Strawberry’s interior is modern, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Check out the cool light fixtures, comfy wooden stools, beautifully decorated tiles, which might look familiar, if you have visited Frietwinkel in the Folkingestraat, since they both share the same owner. (Awesome food by the way. The place to go for excellent fries and other bio snacks!)
The menu offers a range of (green) smoothies, but if you’re a sucker for a creamy milkshake, it’s easy to leap to the dark side! Hey, a milkshake has fruit and is basically a smoothie if you forget about the ice cream in the mix, right? Talking about ice cream; They do a really delicious yogurt ice cream and soft cone (with various toppings, think Oreo, Dutch stroopwafel or fresh fruit).
And what pairs extremely well with ice cream? Yes, that’s right: WAFFLES!. They just are the stars of the entire menu! They are made to order, so it might take a minute, but trust us, you will not be disappointed. The scent only is sorta hypnotizing…. I’m starting to think that the menu emerged from a mind that is aware of the fact that there is no better way to start the day by having a healthy smoothie, but also really enjoys a good ol’ freshly baked waffle with Nutella and coffee in the afternoon, whilst soaking up some sun.
Summarizing; This spot is just the perfect place to relax and let time and people pass by and if you’re just a very thirsty person and on-the-go, Strawberry has a nice selection of bio Lemonade+ and ChariTea among other soda’s, but we highly recommend one of the delicious smoothies! Follow the sweet smell of waffles lingering in the Coehoornsingel and let your cravings decide what to have!
