De 12 Balcken, since 1975 the eatery of Texel where you will feel welcome. From 10 o’clock in the morning you can come to us for everything that an eatery should offer. Think of the coffee of Segafredo, the extensive lunch menu, carefully selected but affordable house wines and a fine dinner from the Jospergrill.
What Balcken has distinguished in recent years is the extensive range of specialty beers and special gins. We do our best to present you a unique and up-to-date selection, consisting of special Belgian and foreign specialty beers. Be surprised by at least 140 varieties from the bottle and always 8 alternating beers on tap.
The Twelve Balcken is on place 42 of the cafe top 100 of Misset Horeca, who says about us: “the served food gets just as much love as the beers and that’s how it belongs in a café like this”. We are also proud members of the Alliance-of-Beer Tasteries. All this in a relaxed (smoke-free) atmosphere, where everyone from young to old, from Texel to tourist, feels welcome. We look forward to seeing you ……
