Not a gourmet place but a quick self serve with very fresh and locally made food, eaten mostly at communal tables. The choices are quite limited and when we visited exclusively vegetarian, but the mushrooms and potatoes were excellent, the veggie paella OK (but lacking...More

We saw the reviews and went there to have lunch. It was very simple food and very expensive 21 Euro per kilo (incluiding the plate which itselft was about 350 grams). No napking and it has only one tableeeeeeeeeeeee.

We went for a family lunch. Really cool concept, put the food you want on your plate and pay by the weight of said plate. The food is all vegetarian or vegan and each dish is perfect. We had mushroom quiche, squash tart and aubergine...More

Cute little café with delicious fresh dishes. The day was very hot and they had Mexican frittata and cabbage/carrot salad and cucumber salad—the perfect antidote for the heat! Worth a visit.

Fresh, healthy, beautiful food. Perfect to take away (for a picnic along the canal) or to eat in the cozy, relaxed restaurant.

The Living offers great value and super tasty vegetarian food. Because of the buffet style, you can get just the amount that you want to eat and pay by weight. There is a variety of cold and warm foods and some sweets as well. Every...More

Perfect place for a quick lunch or dinner. Food is pay-by-weight (reasonably priced) from a small buffet (approx. 10 or so dishes). I tried a number of different ones and they were all fantastic, healthy and full of flavour. Especially the Thai Tofu scramble was...More

In the heart of the city, overlooking the theater, we opened The Living, Delft's first 100% organic take-away deli. And our idea is simple: to serve delicious, healthy food at an affordable price. On top of this, students get a 10% discount on everything. Our lunch and dinner menu offers vegan and gluten-free options and is fully vegetarian. See you soon!
