“Table-for-one” restaurant makes eating alone fun

The Eenmaal Cafe in Amsterdam allows patrons to eat alone.

Traveling alone can be relatively refreshing. However, one of the drawbacks about solo traveling includes having to sit at a pub or restaurant and partake in the awkward moment of dining alone. Such an experience can get a tad bit uneasy especially when you have onlookers assuming that you’ve been either stood-up, or something tragic like that.

Fear not, all you lonely diners. The Eenmaal in Amsterdam is a place for those, looking for a “table-for-one.” This pop-up eatery is (supposedly) the first of its kind catering solely to lone diners. Unlike your standard run-of-the-mill restaurant, the Eenmaal –fittingly translated as ‘one-time’ or ‘one-meal,’ in Dutch- only has single-seat dining tables available for their patrons.

Contrary to assumption, the restaurant boasts pretty good food!

The belief here is that eating alone, is a great way to enjoy life’s simple pleasures and disconnect temporarily from the digital world. They wholeheartedly embrace this belief by not including Wi-Fi in their facilities, but rather, encouraging patrons to bring a book or magazine to further unplug.

Despite having to dine alone, the café is not stingy on their portions. For under $50, foodies can enjoy a four-course meal. What a deal!
