Walking through Leiden is nice. It’s a nice university town with a lot of pubs, bars and restaurants. On Saturdays there is a market so some of the boat terraces are hidden behind the market stalls. Roos is one of them. It’s a small restaurant...More

Stopped for breakfast- Gluten free bread option, plus oat or coconut milk alternatives. Lovely terrace on a barge. Little homemade treat served with coffee- and the coffee is great.

Enjoyed coffee and cake here.What I like here is that everything is made on the spot - they had just taken the banana bread out of the oven when we arrived.

Very cute, adorable cafe. We enjoyed breakfast here (french toast, eggs, bacon). Looks like they also have lunch options. Kind of on the smaller side. We came around 9am on a Sunday morning and there were a few seats but by the time we left...More

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. 😋

We went to this lovely cafe for breakfast on our recent trip to Leiden, and were so impressed by the coffee, food and range on the menu that we returned the next day. Service wasn't quick, but we were quite happy to wait in the...More

I had heard a lot about this place so I eventually tried it. I was a bit surprised by the bright and clear room as the facade is quite dark. The cakes were quite good and advertised as home-made, the staff was very friendly and,the...More
