Bij Best

As if Delft didn’t have enough lunch cafes, Bij Best adds itself to the list. Its take on lunch is influenced by the Indonesian background of the owner.

Food
They serve breakfast, lunch and some warm snacks. It’s a fairly typical Dutch lunch cafe menu, but with a few obvious examples of Indonesian influence.

For breakfast, I recommend the Chunky Monkey Pie, which is a questionably named but tasty concoction of oatmeal with peanut butter and banana. They also serve a full English breakfast, which is nice if not completely authentic.

The lunch menu has the usual salads and sandwiches, though you can do a half and half (small salad and half of a sandwich or small portion of soup.) The menu changes a bit, but lean towards the Indonesian options, as those are the most interesting. The sateh sandwich is really tasty.

Ambiance
The space itself is a bit dark but has nice decor and is mostly small tables, so it’s not great for working on a laptop or if you want to sit in a cozy chair.

Service
As with most lunch cafes, they have table service. But the service is quite good and the staff is very friendly and likely to chat with you.

Extras
English language menus are available and the website is in English. They also rent the space for events. You can order a high tea or high wine and on the first Sunday of the month, they serve a buffet menu.

Price
Lunch will cost you around €20.
