What we enjoyed here, is that you can take your time and relax a moment. We ordered drinks and then had no rush to leave again soon. There are enough tables. The menu looked also very nice.

De Balie is my cafe on the Leidse Plein, before i go to cinema or theatre. For a drink, but also for a nice meal. In De Balie is also a cinema, a theatre, and a place for discussions.

We had a lovely breakfast here consisting of scrambled eggs, toast with jam and butter, a croissant, tea and a delicious yogurt with fresh fruit and granola. No complaints, friendly staff, nice building. A perfect start to the day.

Let me be very upfront: I don't like political correctness and socialism. This place is drenched with left wing political correctness and socialism of the worst kind. It's everywhere. In the attitude of the people who visit and the staff. The first, most bad thing...More
