The place is nice and the service is also good, but I went there expecting Real American soul food and was disappointed that it wasn't :( it lacked soul food flavor and grease. Otherwise nice place!

Da la soul has a pleasant atmosphere in the historic city center of Leiden. It is enjoyable to sit in the tables under the sun watching the lively and vibrant atmosphere of the historic center. The drink and eating menu is diverse, and the local Dutch and Belgian beers are recommended.

We stopped in for a quick lunch and we were pleasantly surprised. There were some great dishes on the menu, the crab tart was great so was the bar platter. The staff were really friendly and service was quick. Definitely worth a visit.

We were very pleased to find a restaurant in Leiden that can accommodate gluten free meals (there are very few) but we were thrilled when we realized we had many options and they were all delicious! Most (but not all) dishes can be made gluten free and the portions were quite good. We ordered a bit of everything but my... More

I like the place. I live nearby. Unfortunatly it is rather expensive (duur) for what it is. Tapas type portions for the price of a real dish.

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!
