De Nonnerie: So far my most favorite place in Delft
The location is superb. De Nonnerie (the Nunnery) is located in the old cellars of the Prinsenhof. And in summer you can sit outside when they have a terrass at the inner court. Anyway, you'll sit between ages and ages of history...
But apart form the location, they also have delicious food on the menu for brunch/lunch as we found out...
Opened on tuesday-friday 10.30 till 17.00
Saturday and sunday from 11.30 till 17.00
SPEAKERS: They have Salsa Dancing Lessons
Great music. Visual event!
Discovery Dance night and parties from discos, 70's, 80's 90's, Latin beats,etc. Differetn DJ's in different events.
Salsa Sunday (Salsa-Merengue-Bachata) for an entree: 5 euro
Free Professional Salsa Lessons from 3:00 pm -4:00 pm.
Favorite Dish: Just here for Drinks.
This lunchroom has a really pleasent atmosphere. It is almost like it's in a cave or a huge cellar. This is because the restaurant is located inside the old monestary. De Nonnerie is part of the restaurant called De Prinsenkelder. You can have a light snack, a sandwich or some pasta here, and of course a n ice cup of coffee or tea.
Favorite Dish: I loved the Kwarktaar, which is a lot like cheesecake.
De Nonnerie: coffee and lunchhouse
it in a old kind of cellar with i think the name is arches.

sat+sunday 11.30 - 17.00
Favorite Dish: we had some drinks here.
josé had a brie (kind of french cheese) and chorizo toast.
Place to eat
In Delft, you will find a wide variety of restaurants. Because of the large choice of restaurants, there really is something of everybody's liking. You can choose from several culinary specialties from all over the world. There also is a diversity in atmosphere and prices.
Lunchroom Leonidas: Lunchroom Leonidas
Passing along this chocolate shop we noticed that they had a lovely lunchroom attached. In the back sliding windows that came out on a lovely garden with nice grown up trees and lots of flowers. A pleasant surprise in the city centre.
Favorite Dish: We just had afternoon coffee there.
Some people were enjoying a real treat: a pot of tea/coffee with a plate of different scones/pastries/chocolates. Looked very yummie ...
Kleyweg's Stads-Koffyhuis: Kleyweg's Stads-Koffyhuis
A very cozy lunchroom/tearoom in a quiet location along a canal.
In the summer months they have a lovely boat terrace on the canal. A perfect spot to have lunch or afternoon coffee/tea on a nice day!
Favorite Dish: Their menu is huge, especially the choice of pancakes (both sweet and savoury).
Also omelets, rolls, hamburgers, ice cream, various coffee specialities, etc.
List of restaurants
In general the restaurants and open air terraces on Markt square are great for tourists, families with children and those wanting to taste Dutch specialities such as pancakes, fritters (poffertjes) and simple pub food.
A bit more stylish are the cafe's and street terraces directly behind the Town Hall and in front of the Waag (which is a restaurant itself).
And then there are countless restaurants along the canals.

Le Vieux Jean: Le Vieux Jean
Somehow I always ended up in the same restaurant in Delft on the Voldersgracht. And it doesn't exist anymore. I am still trying to remember its name but I vividly remember the very good and simple Italian food, the owner breaking out in opera singing at the end of the evening, especially when I offered him a cigar, glasses of grappa and great atmosphere.
The choice here for Vieux Jean is completely arbitrary as I only know it to be mentioned often in culinary magazines.
And I happened to walk past and make a snapshot.
A 3 course menu amounts to € 40,50 per person.

Willem van Oranje: great coffee
This restaurant on the Markt near the town hall has great coffee and they do have a good lunch menu.
Favorite Dish: We had a "broodje gezond" a frenchstick with ham, cheese, egg, lettuce and tomato. it was all fresh and crisp. They also have a large selection of pancakes.
Willem van Oranje: heavenly desserts
Willem van Oranje (William of Orange) is a large café in Delft's main square. It's three places in one: a hotel, a restaurant, and a café. I'm talking about the café part, placed outside in the square - which is the perfect place to stop for coffee and cakes while you are visiting Delft. It's the one that offers the largest portions of everything: huge delicious ice-creams, cakes and especially, the small dutch pancakes covered in sugar and fruits.
Favorite Dish: The cherry-filled pancake's excellent, especially if topped with ice-cream. But I also spotted some promising huge blackforrest cakes. The kids siting nearby seemed to be very fond of them!
De Visbanken: fresh fish
This old fish stall very close to the city square and townhall has the most delicious fish and shellfish - I loved the mussels.

Cafe Kobus Kuch: Great local brew
This cafe serves a great choice of very good quality local beers and light meals.
Favorite Dish: My favourite beer is a Delftsche Knollaert which is a locally produced special brown beer with a 6% alcohol content.
