Right in the heart of The Hague, on the graceful tree-lined Lange Voorhout, is the Bodega de Posthoorn. A cozy cafe-restaurant, you can stop in for a beer, a coffee, some delicious Dutch pea soup, or a full meal. You always feel welcome. When you walk in the door, you feel like you have stepped in to someone's home -- or back into a better and more generous time. The Bodega's site is unbeatable: From its terrace under the canopy of trees, you can gaze across the street to the swan-filled lake in front of the stately Parliament, or across the square at an elegant line of historic mansions -- one of which was the Queen's palace, and is now a remarkable museum devoted to the brain-teasing art of M.C. Escher. The Bodega is a singular place -- come take a look.
Disclosure: This was not a commercial project. I did not receive any pay, nor did I get free food. I did, however, get lots of free cappuccinos, which made for some very caffeinated filming sessions.
Acknowledgments: My deepest gratitude to Michael Meeuwisse -- owner of the Bodega de Posthoorn -- who not only kindly allowed me to film his restaurant, but took an unjustified risk by participating in my film.
