Using a variety of homemade fillings, toppings, and sauces, Jacketz provides the opportunity for you to create your own unique and personalized combinations...Or to choose from popular menu combinations (such as the Chicken Salad Melt with freshly baked bacon, or the Jacketz filled with Green Veggies, tartar sauce, and mixed nuts).

Jacketz Potatos is amongst the few places in Leiden where you can find good food and a nice informal atmosphere. The potatoes are huge, the fillings are creatives and tasty. Free wi-fi and free refill of tea/coffee after the first cup. Many ingredients are organic.

“Excellent”

Loving the concept. Amazing alternative for both lunch and dinner. Absolute value for money. Whenever I am in the Netherlands I do pass by Leiden for a Jacketz Patato.

“Great Staff, wonderful potatoes and fillings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have visited Leiden twice and had meals from here both times. The staff are great, helpful and friendly. The potatoes are the best I have ever tasted and the choice of fillings, comprehensive and very tasty. It is possible to eat in, outside if the weather is good or have a take away by the canal. Love it !!!

“Simply amazing and quickly prepared dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Well, if you happen to be a potato lover, just like myself, then there is no better place to go to!
Jacketz has quite some variety in what they prepare and they continuously keep trying new things. I have tried almost their entire menu so far and never had anything I wouldn't enjoy! Also some of the greatest things I have ever tried, I also ate here.
The nicest part about it is the price you pay, because it is so low for what you get.
It is not the regular restaurant, more like a quick "grab-a-bite" thing, but it is definitely worth going to. You don't know what you're missing!

“Tasty Gluten free vegetarian options in Leiden!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We've been going to this food outlet for about three years. It's very unusual as its a jacket potato place so there's no reliance on bread, the norm for lunch in The Netherlands. The food is also very veggie friendly.
