About the Leidsche Koek

At this shop the original Leidsche koek is baked, in several varieties. Around 1600, the local elite enjoyed the Leidsche tilt. This name quickly changed to Leidsche kletskop. Today's cake is made to a recipe from 1602 perfected by the pastry chefs at restaurant IDD. Besides the kletskop we make two other variations; a light cake with dark chocolate and a dark cake with white chocolate. We also serve the most delicious coffee to go. Come taste it soon!
