The name

According to the website of the restaurant, the name "Tante Koosje" is derived from mrs. Koosje Edema, former occupant of the building. She led a reclusive life, but was still well known in Loenen aan de Vecht. After her death in 1958, the municipality wanted to demolish her house and several others. After protests, the houses were renovated. Later, when the local council was discussing the future of the building, they referred to it as "Het huis van Tante Koosje" (The House of Auntie Koosje). This was adopted as the name of the restaurant.[18]
