Restaurant Serendipity - Drip Coffee


Update on current COVID-19 measures: you can still stay with us and enjoy the food! Breakfast and dinner are available for takeaway, including the 2-course dinner package.

At The Green Elephant, we know better than anyone what a difference healthy eating makes to your overall well-being. A good breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you can be sure that the breakfast buffet in our all-day restaurant is full of nutritious fresh juices, fruit, cereals such as overnight oats, and plenty of vegetarian and vegan fillings, spreads, and toppings. We believe that all food should be suitable for everyone, including those with allergies. That’s why if you have a gluten or lactose intolerance (or both), you never have to ask The Green Elephant Hostel in Maastricht for a different breakfast.

If you would to have lunch, a drink with some tasty bites, or dinner later in the day, we are open all day long. Our healthy dish of the day has you covered.
