We had breakfast here outside in the sunshine last week. Wonderful french toast, really good yoghurt with granola (and plenty of fruit), lovely staff and good drinks. My only regret is not going back on our last day in Leiden.

I was hoping for breakfast but arrived too late, instead I had an amazing sandwich - chicken thigh, truffle mayo, bacon, salad and Parmesan. It did not disappoint, very tasty and filling. 😋

Visited Roos a couple of times on our recent Dutch holiday and we were impressed each time. The sandwiches were fairly epic in proportion and leave you feeling full for many an hour (the BLTA on delicious brown bread was a personal favourite but the...More
