Food was excellent, really nice way to share and try a lot of different dishes. My American husband said the macaroni and cheese was the best he's ever had. Service was a little slow, but very friendly.

Leiden's only soul food restaurant is located at the Morspoort. De la Soul has a broad menu for lunch, dinner or drinks. Soul food, delicious food that emerged in the southern United States and was influenced by Creole, Cajun and Caribbean cuisines. Enjoy lunch or an evening meal at an intimate table, or order real soul food finger snacks at the bar. What's more, the sunny pavement terrace will make you want to stay longer for a lingering taste of Leiden soul!
