Hills and Mills

This funky cafe has a manifesto on their website and advertises pure food. The food is tasty, but it’s not the cheapest, and the service can be painfully slow.

Offering a full lunch and dinner menu, as well as serving breakfast, they can cover you for basically any meal. Though not outwardly obvious, the owner and chef is originally from Pakistan and quite a few Pakistani dishes have found their way onto the varied menu. 

The food is overall very good, with a focus on organic items. The menu notes a number of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free offerings. The food is fresh and the quality is high.

The biryani is the chef’s choice and a favorite among Delft’s extensive South Asian student population. Their naans are oversized and delicious. For a healthy dessert, try the milk shake, a delicious blend of banana, avocado and cocoa.

The place was decorated with an eye towards the hipster crowd. It’s pretty and bright but can be a tight squeeze, especially on the weekends. As their main seating area is in the back and lacks windows, it can be rather loud when full. 

The service is very friendly. Most of the staff is family and they are very accommodating and welcoming. However, especially on the weekends, the wait time is extensive. 

The menu is in a blend of Dutch, English and Urdu. Don’t let that be daunting; it’s not challenging to understand and the staff is happy to assist. There’s wifi. 

Lunch for one will set you back about €15, more if you order a warm lunch, whereas dinner for one will cost €30.
