Review: What a lovely place! Tucked into the middle of pictureseque Leiden, they're on a mission to make the baked potato respectable. The range of sauces and toppings ranges from healthy to sinful (their dukkah is especially lovely). They serve a half-potato with, as they point out, the same amount of topping as a full one, so you can adjust the proportion of potato you end up with. Everything about the food was a delight. In addition, the folks behind the counter were great guys. The store is clean and calming. Even the restroom is neat and laid out well. A little oasis. These folks have ambitions to expand and, though it'll be a long time before I see them on the US Coast, I'll be sure to give them my custom wherever I find them. (Maybe I'm just a sucker for these two-guys-trying-to-make-it-big places -- Stoats in Edinburgh is another that comes to mind. I mean, it's just a darned baked potato place, and here I am feeling sentimental. See? That's what a great eatery does.)
