Great food and good prices

I liked this place so much I made an account to write a review for them. A mere 5 min cycle from the Hague Academy, Baklust offers really tasty, filling food at affordable prices. I went there thrice in a row to have the seiten sandwich - the seiten portions were generous, though I thought it could be more spicy! The bread was also really nice, with a good sourish tang as befitting of proper sourdough. I liked the use of spelt as well!
One thing I am rather puzzled about is the inconsistent serving sizes. The first time I ate there, I had a massive serving of seiten, and two thin slices of bread. The vegan sour cream was served in a separate bowl. The second time I had it, the seiten portion definitely shrunk, and the cream was drizzled over rather than in a separate bowl. The third time, the bread slice was hefty, and the tomato slices had changed to cherry tomatoes. This time, having cycled for an entire day, I asked for more cream in a bowl and they very generously provided that for me.
Not really a complaint per se, just something rather odd!
I've also taken away their apple cake (gf, v), empanada (v), and banana walnut bread. The apple cake was quite good, though a bit dry due to the gluten-free flour. The empanada was filled with more seiten and vegetables, and made a really delicious dinner when heated up in the oven. The banana walnut bread was not too sweet, and a tasty dessert.
Pity they are closing for two weeks, but I will come back just to eat here again!
