During the construction of the railway line Zeist – Bilthoven - Bosch en Duin - Huis ter Heide in 1901,
a service House (located on the current Amersfoortseweg) was converted into a railway station hall with cigars shop.
It served from that year as railway station Huis ter Heide.

The railway line that ran along this station was used for passenger and freight transport until 1941.
During the second world war the railway line after temporary closed and after the liberation the rail way was only used for freight.
After the station lost its function in 1943, it was converted into the Spitfire café.
The stations canopy was converted into a conservatory.
The waiting room with the original wooden benches gives access to the terrace.

The Spitfire was the local pub for the many American soldiers who were stationed at Camp New Amsterdam ( Soesterberg air base )
in the period from 1954 till 1994.
The soldiers chose this cafe because of its location, near the camp and because they were allowed to appear in uniform here.
