On the Markt at Grand Cafe Willem van Oranje Sep 29, 2014
Grand Cafe Willem van Oranje looked like a likely spot for lunch in Delft. It has a perfect location, on the market square in the shadow of the Nieuwe Kerk. We sat outside in very pleasant weather.

The multilingual menu displayed all sorts of temping offerings from sandwiches to salads. My attention was caught by the Dutch pancakes (Pannekoeken). I had to try one and order a Ham and Cheese pancake. It was wonderful! When it arrived it looked for all the world like a pizza. But it was definitely a pancake cooked with ham and cheese on top. (The pancake was more on the order of a large crêpe than what I think of as pancake, and was really good.)

I'm liking this Dutch cuisine! Definitely recommended.

Yes, pancakes here are more crepe-style. with ham or rather with spek (bacon) is a "farmers' style" pancake, most people eat with (icing) sugar, syrup, whipped cream, strawberries or cherries. There is also a very small pancake, you buy a portion of 8 - 10 pieces, they are more similar to the American ones in thickness and texture, called Poffertjes. Often eaten with butter & icing sugar :)

Grand cafe Willem van Oranje Sep 27, 2009
After meeting each other at the Delft railwaystation we walked towards the center of the town, where we looked for a place to sit down and talk, and have something to drink.

This grand cafe got a big terrace on the Markt. It was sunny weather, so we decided to sit outside.

We ordered something to drink, and soon it was brought to our table(s).

Then a few of us wanted to have something to eat as well, actually it turned out everone except one ordered something to eat.

They serve lunch and dinner but we did not want a big meal, and they had a nice selection of pancakes and sandwiches.

When the food was served it turned out the sandwiches were rather big, club style, and I suspect they sliced their loafs themselves or have the knifes of the machine set at large gaps, portions were generous.

The pancakes were good as well. I had poffertjes, and they were not really special, however acceptable.

The interior of the Grand cafe is in Old Dutch style, with nice Delft Blue tiles and old utensils as decoration.
