Get acquainted with local artisan products and award winning culinary creations in the ‘Living Room of Delft’. Whether it’s the homemade apple pie, the aromatic pancakes or the generously topped hamburgers, typical Dutch cosiness goes beyond coffee and cappuccino.

“Simply delightful”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

You can't beat Delft for traditional Dutch architecture, atmosphere and appelgebak, and if that's what you like (I certainly do!) then Stads Koffyhuis is THE place to take your coffee break. The location is great, on a quiet stretch of the Oude Delft canal just a minute's walk from the centre, and on sunny days you can enjoy the vista of the leaning spire of Oude Jan from a pontoon on the water. But if it's cold or wet - rather more often in the Netherlands! - then settle into a comfortable chair in the cosy interior and enjoy a warming coffee or hot chocolate.

The entrance area is great for singles wanting to enjoy a coffee and croissant while reading the paper (Delft is a student town), while the upstairs room at the back is great for chatting with friends or a group outing. The food is typical of Dutch cafes: don't look for a wide selection of hot meals, this place is for coffee, cake, pancakes and snacks, and anyway it is closed in the evenings.

My only complaints are that they once kept me waiting for a high tea that had been booked because the previous group had not finished: they clearly couldn't handle two groups and should not have made the bookings so close together; and that they are closed on Sundays!

“Great lunch spot on a pretty day”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Four of us (two senior couples) had lunch here on a very beautiful day. We ate outside on the restaurants barge which sits in a canal. We got there just before noon and the outside tables were filling fast. As you can imagine the outside tables were very popular so arrive early to assure yourself one.

The have a very nice menu with a wide range of Dutch sandwiches as well as a large selection of savory and sweet pancakes. The lunch items seem to range from 8 euros to 16 euros. We all chose different sandwiches, I had smoked salmon on a delicious roll with pesto sauce. Very tasty. We all enjoyed a cappuccino after lunch. The bill for four of us was 46 euros and we left a four euro tip. Would I go back again...you bet!

“Great Setting, Decent Coffee”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This place is probably nicest during warm and good weather, as you can dine on the water on their barge. Alternatively, there is also lots of seating inside.

I gave this rating very good because of the setting and atmosphere it provides. We were recommended this for coffee from several sources and found it to be average, though the cookie that comes with it is delicious! We only had coffee, so this review does not include the food, which did look very good and enjoyable.

I recommend for a stop if looking for something with character and charm.

“Good and interesting food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very interesting menu. Food was very good. Great place to go and sit outside on a warm day (on a canal barge). A little pricey, but worth it. It appears that they have won awards for their sandwiches.

Lots of locals eating here.

Lovely place on Oude Delft. It was a sunny day so we sat on a boat outside. The service was amazing and the food was great. We will come back for sure :)
