Acroquette sandwich, a prepackaged tuna sandwich or a filled biscuit. Classics when it comes to snacks at the gas station. We wrote an article about it for a reason. But we prefer to send the discerning eater onto the A27. There you will find Scheiwijk: a gas station for gourmets.
The culinary pit stop has two locations, for which we -honestly admitted- have even made a detour. According to Scheiwijk , food along the road can also be homemade and honest.
“We love good food ourselves and that is why our guests can also count on quality,” we read on the website. Something we can only applaud.
From the region
Where other gas stations do their purchases from the giant, this branch opts for products from the region and – when possible – organic. That could be a baker, a butcher, a cheese farm or a horticulturist. Expect homemade Italian ice cream, a fresh biscuit with the very tasty coffee and ‘an exemplary ball sandwich’, according to culinary critic Hiske Versprille in the Volkskrant .
from the house
Besides that homemade biscuit with the coffee, Ingrid and brother René de Wagenaar plus team make much more themselves. How about freshly baked pastéis de nata in the morning and homemade pesto on a freshly filled sandwich? Oh yes and those filled cakes, you can also find them at Scheiwijk. They are all made in-house here.
Another very important reason why Scheiwijk is worth a stopover: it is a paradise full of (culinary) gifts. From organic extra virgin olive oil to the latest fine cookbooks . On the way to family and smoothly forgot to stock up on a present? This gas station for gourmets is prepared for anything: expect a suitable assortment of gifts for every holiday. Whether it’s Christmas, Mother’s Day or Easter: in any case, the choice is huge.
