This venue is a theater with a bar and small restaurant set up in the lobby area. Tables very tightly packed. Food was quite tasty. Staff was friendly. Large selection of tap beer and other libations available.

What we enjoyed here, is that you can take your time and relax a moment. We ordered drinks and then had no rush to leave again soon. There are enough tables. The menu looked also very nice.

De Balie is my cafe on the Leidse Plein, before i go to cinema or theatre. For a drink, but also for a nice meal. In De Balie is also a cinema, a theatre, and a place for discussions.

We had a lovely breakfast here consisting of scrambled eggs, toast with jam and butter, a croissant, tea and a delicious yogurt with fresh fruit and granola. No complaints, friendly staff, nice building. A perfect start to the day.
