Great Place to Eat

*CAUTION*

Cheese in The Netherlands is not vegetarian. There is a product called stremsel which is the stomach of a calf. This is used to keep cheese edible. Jacketz does not use vegetarian cheese so you must choose a potato without. You can still get cheese with vegetarian stremsel most of the time it is available from a health shop or a "natuurwinkel". If a cheese is organic or "biologisch" it is suitable for a vegetarian.

Jacketz had great service and great food. It was brought to yoou quickly and really inexpensive! Around 10 euros for a good potato. Ordering 1/2 a jacketz is the best thing to do because they are very big!

I would definitely recommend trying the hummus and dukkah. It's a great place with a cosy atmosphere!

Pros: Great and cheap food, Friendly service, Made quicly
Cons: No vegetarian cheese, Quite small

Can't beat the combo of veggies and low prices leaving with a happy, full tummy. You can even get a glass of wine with your spud.
Half a potato is the way to go unless you're a hungry teenager!
Wait-gals are very helpful / friendly also!

The only such cafe in the Netherlands

For vegetarian, try the beetroot filling, with various cheesed on top.

For vegan, ask on space. I think, green veggies, hummus and nuts / dukkah should do. Though personally I did not like dukkah very much.

Attention! The potatoes are huuuuge, my advice: take 1/2 potato even if you are very very hungry.

Pros: big portion size for small price, very delicious, unique in Holland

I really enjoy this place. They combine nice authentic elements (like wooden chairs) with a stylish interior. The potatoes are lovely! They use biological ingredients from local farmers. Their one and only desert is a "baked" apple filled with other ingredients every month. I really see the possibilities of the two lovely owners making this into a franchise :)

Pros: great food, superfriendly owners/customer service, cosy but stylish
Cons: only branch

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.)

Pros: delicious, inexpensive, great staff and store

Enjoyed several splendid meals here during our stay in Leiden. The potatoes are massive and filling. Toppings are fresh and delicious. Staff are friendly and flexible.

Pros: Tasty food, Healthy, Friendly staff
Cons: They do serve flesh
