I loved this small restaurant in Den Burg. we had homemade Ice-Tea, Chai Latte and a fresh Mint-Tea. The atmosphere was absolutely lovely, everything was clean and the staff very friendly. They also sell Texel products, lots of special teas, coffee, jam...

Never having stayed in Den Burg before and due to arrive there around lunch time, I was browsing various blogs on the train trip to Den Helder to see what might sound like a good place to try. Thanks to madebyellen.com I found out about...Lokaal 16 and sure enough, the coffee was excellent! It is great to see Texelse Branding being served in more and more eateries on the island (I first tried it a couple of years ago at the complimentary coffee corner in the PLUS supermarket in De Cocksdorp!). According to the Lokaal 16 barista, they serve a melange created just for them. The Texel pastrami sandwich was really good: thick, crusty bread, a tangy spread (artichoke? I can't remember) and lots of thinly sliced pastrami from locally-raised beef. A lot of arugula on top, maybe a little too much for some diners' tastes, but at least it wasn't being used to compensate for a lack of pastrami. The inside of the cafe is charming but it was gorgeous weather so I sat at a table out back, which felt like a secret little oasis. Definitely worth seeking out.More

I had a very bad experience at Lokaal 16, the place is really pretty and the young waitresses are kind, but the owner of the bar was really rude and selfish to me. Well there are better places to go to in Texel...

We had a good homemade soup and sandwiches. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, just outside the main tourist area.

We stopped here on our bike ride around the island with our two children. From the outside we were not sure what to expect, but the cafe and the adorable garden area really make this spot. The staff were really friendly and the food was...excellent. We all had open sandwiches and coffee, which were really good.More

It's tucked away on a quieter street, but definitely worth seeking out. My mozzarella salad was wonderful, and not expensive; the coffee was great too. Nice friendly service. One point to note for non-Dutch tourists - they couldn't accept our credit cards (as they weren't...issued in the Netherlands), so we paid cash, but they could not give us change, so we had to have roughly the right money for the meal plus tip.More

This cafe was recommended as a great place for breakfast but we decided to have a light lunch there instead. We weren’t disappointed! The interior is cute and so relaxed, you can spend hours here just reading and enjoying their coffee and cakes. Or -...in the summer - sit outside in the little backyard. We opted for salmon salad and brie baguette, both very tasty. We decided to take two large slices of cake back with us to our apartment to enjoy it later. So delicious!More

There are many what I consider touristic lunch spots on the island however Lokaal 16 is nothing like that. I would not mind Lokaal 16 to be in my neighbourhood. The menu has a lot of nice options which include local ingredients from across the...island. The food that we had was excellent and the coffee was good as well. There is a nice (small) outside area to sit when the sun is out as well.More

Cosy Cafe with lots of vegan and vegetarian options. I had fruit and nut cake, that was really tasty. The tiny garden in the back is very peacefull to sit in.
