Food at school has never been such fun! Come to Cafe Modern in Teuven

Eating out at school? You can in Teuven, just over the border in Belgium. This old village school has been converted into a modern cozy restaurant with a glance to the past. Characteristic elements of the school have been preserved, for example the coat hooks in the hall, the blackboard and the Art on the walls. A unique experience in a special restaurant in Belgium.

Various options for large and small groups

Take a seat in the restaurant for a pleasant meal with family or friends. And if you’re spending the night in the adjacent group accommodation and bed and breakfast La Mairie you’re very welcome to come for a bite to eat with a large or select group. The classroom has been transformed into a cozy restaurant with several small rooms where you can enjoy the chef’s delicious treats.

Next to the village school, the former gym has been completely transformed into a party venue. The ideal place for a great party, unforgettable wedding or a successful conference!

Its not only us who think the location is unique and special, the whole of Flanders is in complete agreement. Recently, a Belgian television channel proclaimed Café Modern to be the "best café in Flanders!"

Wonderful meals prepared with local produce

Café Modern offers its guests only the very best. The fresh orange juice, for example, is really freshly squeezed . And if you are a lover of fresh meat then this is definitely the restaurant to visit. The meat from cows and pigs comes from a farm in the surrounding area and is completely organic. The cows, for instance, are always allowed to graze outside and never get penicillin. You can taste the difference.

"Using only the best of the best is so normal for us that we don’t shout it from the rooftops. We just do it. Why should I get it elsewhere if we have it here? " says owner Maurice Loo.

Ultimate hospitality in South Limburg

A breakfast, lunch or dinner can be very delicious, but the service and friendliness is perhaps even more important. The employees have a passion for their profession and they radiate it! Not only will you be warmly welcomed, but they’ll totally pamper you and assure that you lack nothing.

"We select our employees on the basis of friendliness and passion for the job. A matter of marketing? Well, no. To me it’s more about a way of life." says owner Maurice Loo.

The place to be on a nice day!

Café Modern’s terrace is the place to be on a nice day. Enjoy the sunshine and of course a drink. Our guests come from near and far for a friendly chat on Café Modern’s terrace. Experience our hospitality for yourself in Teuven!
