“Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We went there for late lunch. Both of us took a meal consisting of bread with several dutch spreads and some accessories. The spreads wasn't bad but you could buy better at any Albert Heijn (food store) and we only to one little bread to all the spreads (strange way to reduce costs).
The staff seemed quite confused.

“Nice high tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Just got back from a great High tea. You can get unlimited tea and can stay for as long as you like. The cakes where very good and the savory food was excellent.

The only problem was that we where unlucky with service.
We got there just after 2:00pm. There was an empty table that had not been cleared. We sat at the table while they cleared the table and said they would be back. After 10 minutes no one came back, we had to go and order at the bar. Tea was then brought to the table that still had not been cleaned.

I did notice that after, the lunch rush, around 2:30pm it was not so busy and all tables where clean and service was fast.

So please go there but I would avoid go at 2:00pm.
Go 15 minutes later and you will have a great time.

Paul v, Owner at Leonidas Lunch-Tearoom, responded to this review, November 27, 2012
Saturday november 23 was really a terrible day. Everybody was waiting for Sinterklaas to arrive. After he had passed at arounf 13.00 hrs everybody got inside and the lunchroom was packed. Two o'clock was the time things started to become normal again, so that was just the time you arrived and and "enjoyed' the aftermath of the Sinterklaasintocht in our lunchroom.

In spite of everything, thank you anyway for the very nice and positive response and please know that it is not our habit to leave people unattended.

“definitely one to visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

excellent place to have lunch or tea. good quality food, drink and service and reasonably priced. i came here a couple of times as i like the variety on offer and the portions are a good size. more or less exactly right. i had a great bacon and cheese omelette and their coffee was lovely. next door they have a chocolate shop which is divine!

“Excellent Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Stopped today for lunch at Leonidas in Delft. I ordered a Brie sandwich. It came warm with toasted pine nuts, and a salad on the side. Delicious! The service was very attentive and friendly.

“Try their high tea, I strongly recommend it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

Great place to go with an amazing and very varied tea menu. Love their high tea but have not been disappointed about the other menu options. Good for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or a light dinner.
They have a small garden in the back which is kind of tranquil and just lovely to sit in on a summer day.
