Slagerij Leo van Vliet is a Delft institution, and once you try their cheap and tasty sandwiches, you’ll understand why.

To look inside Leo, you’d be right in thinking that it’s a butcher. But that doesn’t explain the line of college students out the door at lunch time. Instead, that is explained by their delicious and inexpensive sandwiches.

Leo sells what you’d expect any good quality butcher to sell as well as offering a deli counter of prepared meals that you can take to go. These include various casseroles and cold salads. The college students are drawn to the sandwiches, served on homemade bread. It’s difficult to pick a favorite but the carpaccio is very popular. The roast beef is also delicious (have it served with the sauce). None of the sandwiches have ever been bad.

It has all the ambiance of a butcher shop. Because it’s a butcher shop.

You order at the counter and, around lunch time, fight to the death for one of the few tables outside. If you’re lucky, you might find a bench by the canal to sit and enjoy your sandwich.

There’s no English language menu available. They are available for catering.

A sandwich will cost you around €3.
