Hot spot Leiden: Van de Leur


One of the hot spots in Leiden where I frequently hang out, is Grand Cafe/Restaurant Van de Leur at Breestraat 117. It is a great spot to work, refuel after running some errands, or meet up with friends for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Fairly new to Van de Leur is the Meat Cave in the former basement. There they serve up delicious grilled meat from the Green Egg grill.

In the entry hallway there are changing art exhibitions. The gorgeous historical elements of the building that date back to the 19th century are still visible here. The hallway leads to the living room where you can work, eat, or relax in cosy arm chairs. I love their flammkuchen and salads! At the end of the hallway there is a small garden which is only open in summer.

The front of Van de Leur is a coffee shop. Besides coffee, pastries and sandwiches you can also buy cute mugs, lemonades and coffee and tea brewing essentials.

    Oh, wat gaaf! Dat zat er nog niet toen ik wegging uit Leiden! Toch maar weer eens een bezoekje aan mijn vroegere hometown overwegen…
