*HOFJE VAN WIJS When you now step into the shop, a fragrant aroma encompasses you. Since 1950 at the Wijs’s the coffee comes from their own roasting ovens. The beans roll out of big red silos that stand behind the counter. Light and dark-brown/almost black beans, according to your taste. On top of the old-fashioned cupboard stand tall metal colourful boxes wherein, in earlier times, the tea from China was stored. www.hofjevanwijs.nl. Zeedijk 43
