Description: Cafe de Oude Jan is a small pub in the centre of Delft, with a big and sunny terrace in the summer. We're a suitable place for lunch and drinks, but also for a gathering of friends or colleagues, birthday party, reception or a lunch with a bigger group. Inside, the cosy and warm interior ensures an intimate environment. Outside, there are numerous possibilities on the terrace during the summer (like barbecues and big events).

“Local sport cafe that is open till the late hours”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

This cafe is open untill the late hours almost every day of the week. It attracts a lot of people that work in restaurants and is often the last stop before calling it a night. Because it is always open till late it also attracts the so called "bar flies" or regulars from other cafes that are not ready to go home yet. An acquired taste, but if this type of scene is your thing it is a must visit location. In summer they often have a stage outside with live music playing.

“Popular outdoor cafe near the old church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Stopped in for lunch while on a walking tour of old Delft. Good sandwiches and beer, reasonable prices. Seems to be popular with locals. Good place for people-watching.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Right across from the Old Church, Café de Oude Jan was a nice place to have a break from walking around the city. The waitstaff was very helpful with our questions and accommodated our various requests. We sat outside which gave us a nice place to sit and people-watch. Our sandwiches were served quickly and tasted great. We'd definitely go back on future visits.

“Great little place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Visited Delft on a coach trip and decided to eat lunch here due to the lovely view - next to the Old Church - combined with the welcoming outdoor tables in the sun! Given an English menu which was helpful! The Dutch menu has snacks named after local streets, landmarks and historical figures! Meal was lovely. Service was first class. Will happily return on any future visit.

“great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Came across this cafe/bar/restaurant while touring beautiful Delft. Had a lovely morning coffee, (hot and large) and followed it up later in the day with a good quality lunch which was beautifully presented and goodly portions.
The staff couldn't have been nicer, very helpful and attentive.
It certainly gets our 'go again' vote.
