I have had several high teas here and I keep coming back because it is so good and classy. All bites are hand made and delicious, from surprising quiches, delightful cakes, fresh bread with home made toppings, home made chocolates, etc. Enough teas to chose from, the hot water is served in a lovely Russian samovar (and filled with new/hot...

This place combines a no-nonsense service with great cakes and fingerbread. The interior is very basic, vintage, but the food is delicious. Do not expect a 5 star treatment, but who cares when you are eating one of the best chocolate-cappuccino cakes ever?!?

Absolutely awful! Dry banana bread. Chai pumpkin combo-just terrible. Cheesecake not good either. Having lived in US I know good pumpkin pie and moist banana bread. This place has nothing on Cheesecake Factory. Save your money and don't bother

I live close to this place and I went there a couple of times. A lot of times to take away. The place is always full and yes the sweet stuff is delicious but i was always surprised by the bad service. Somehow i don't feel welcome and the owners(mother and daughter) have in my opinion a rude and arrogant... More

Nice and cosy place where you can enjoy great sweet cakes, nice coffee and excellent sandwiches etc. It can be crowded so be sure to reserve a spot if you want to make sure there's a place.

Went there twice for the high tea and still cannot get enough! The pastries, sandwiches and cakes are fresh and beautifully made. For 25 euros per person you get to feast yourself on this great assortment of food (and take the rest home!)The ladies working in the shop are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. Absolute must to go there... More

We often come here in mornings make sure you are early they are full quickly and in summer the terrace too. Cakes are great and also their breakfast offer is great, simple but quality for a good price. Coffee is good too, service is nice despite they are often running like crazy. Owners are a daughter and mom and often... More

I went in with a friend and due to my allergies I immediately went to the counter where the cakes were to inquire if I could possibly eat there. I'm allergic to nuts and soy. The waitress at the counter was very friendly and asked an older woman wearing a hairnet for advice (the owner.) This woman was visibly in... More

"Where do I begin to tell the story of how great a place can be". I love everything about Lof der Zoetheid: the interior, the ambience, the music, the location but most of all the food. It's always very busy so it has a nice urban buzz. Everything is prepared with love and care. If you don't know what to... More
