You might know Delft because of its famous Delft’s Blue, the china that has little Dutch dolls in the colours white and royal blue. Many tourists visit Delft to see the museum of Delft’s Blue. So what should you do after a visit to the museum or a dance workshop? You go and eat! And we know the best place to do that.
Coffee bar Kek
Close to the Markt of Delft, a big square where markets pop up on several days, there is a small street that has stolen our hearts. We walked through the street and saw a queue of people in front of a coffee bar. Inside it was packed. This triggered our brain; we had to go and eat there. We waited in line when a friendly employer told us we just had a wait a little more and then a table will be free for us. We were already happy customers because they took their time to let us know how long it will take.
The juice bar we want in our house.
After a short wait, we could get inside. And I am not exaggerating; we want this to be our future house. The juice bar, the lamps, the tables and kitchen had such a cool interior; we were in complete awe. After being calm again, we checked the menu. It has everything your belly desires, whether you are a meat eater, vegetarian or vegan. I choose an avocado/goat cheese bread lunch and a carrot cake as dessert + a fresh green juice. Jairo tried the coconut ball and a chicken sandwich. In the Netherlands, there is this saying: ‘Alsof een Engel over je tong piest’, which literally means ‘It’s like an angel is peeing on your tongue’. Well, I’ve never experienced that (thankfully), but this food felt like a little piece of heaven. The menu is in Dutch and English.
What to try
Definitely try one of the home-made juices, the carrot cake and all other meals on the menu. Really, we cannot choose. We can choose with our eyes closed and we will be happy with what we will get.
If you don’t like waiting in line, don’t go during lunch time, it will be full. They don’t take reservations.
