Oudt Leyden is located in the city centre of Leiden. It offers authentic Dutch pancakes and other food. It's honestly the only food I ever miss when going on a big trip.

We've quickly become regulars of this place, their pancakes (or rather crepes perhaps?) are just superb. The ham and cheese is a Friday night classic for us. The staff is also quite friendly, and the place is very centrally located. Definitely recommended.

I had a very good Caeser Salad and a beer for lunch here today. Excellent service and a nice outdoor view.

This place is really great. Pannenkoeken are huge (do not confuse them with pancakes or even crepes) and delicious. It's a vintage restaurant where you can taste good food and the dutch hospitality.

Great food at reasonable prices in a down-home atmosphere. No we didn't have their pancakes but loved the tasty club sandwich on thick crusty brown bread. Splashed down with Heineken on tap. Great location and friendly staff.
