“Great Lunch Venue”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Lekker South (Johannes Mungra Straat) is an excellent venue for lunch. Still has the best coffee in town and great sandwhiches and the freshest salads. Lekker North (Sommelsdijke Straat) although a franchise of the original, is not quite at the same standard, but perhaps given time it will improve.
10 out of 10 for Lekker (south)
6 out of 10 for Lekker (north) with much room for improvement

“Great Brunch in the South”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

OK, lets first clarify something, there are 2 Lekkers. The original one in the South of Paramaribo and a newer one in the North. The "Excellent" goes to the one in the South with me having been told (although I do not know for sure) that the one in the North is a franchise.
South; the food is consistently superb along with the service. Great salads and sandwiches with a fresh choice of various breads and dressings. Portions are very substantial giving you a healthy delicious brunch all day long. My family and I will frequently cross from the far North of Town to this Lekker for a much anticipated lunchtime treat.
So why dont we go to our local Lekker in North?
Its crap.
Nice building, nice tables, nice counter but crap food and crap service. Make your own salad with say added anchovies and sun dried tomatoes and you will spend all your time looking for the so called additions. You will find literally half the amount of Salmon in its sandwiches compared to its so called sister operation in the South etc etc etc.
South = wonderfull
North = woefull

“Good food”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Nice and clean with good food and cold drinks. Nice outdoor eating area at one of the locations. Great selection of cheeses to take home and desserts when you finish your meal.

“Clean, fresh food, friendly service”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

This modern coffee shop has a very Euro feel. The sandwiches are prepared with fresh ingredients and tasty combinations, like roasted vegetables and hummus, ham and balsalmic vinegar onions, goats cheese, pine nuts and honey. You have a choice of bread, in white or wheat. They offer homemade soup and quiche of the day. I've enjoyed everything I've tried and the other dishes I watch go by to others always also look good. Completely agree on the gat coffee and will add a killer chocolate-orange cake. Yes, a little pricey for a sandwich, but for me, well worth it. Oh, and the is wifi.

“Food is too expensive, not the value of your money”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

The service staff is not attentive at all, including the owner of the establisment. Price-Quality is low. The food is too expensive and your getting the value of your money
