PLACES I LIKE | Lot en de Walvis, Leiden

lot en de walvis

In February I started with my part time internship. On my days off, I like to meet up with people in different cities than Amsterdam, take photos and sort of be a tourist in my own country. I’ve been to some cool places already. Last week, Manon and I decided to visit Leiden and go to the Hortus Botanicus. After being there for a some time it was time to eat lunch. Quite some people recommend Lot en de Walvis so that’s where we went!

Lot en de Walvis is located next to the water so that’s really lovely! How relaxing to sit on the water side terrace when it’s sunny and just enjoy the weather and the food. Manon ordered kaiserschmarrn and I went for toasted brioche bread with cream and fruit. Yumm! It tasted very good. If you’re visiting Leiden, I recommend visiting Lot en de Walvis. It’s not just the food that’s great. The interior looks amazing as well! Check out their website for more info.
