What is The Living?

Started in February 2015, The Living is the only 100% organic, vegetarian deli, serving delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner in the city of Delft. We have take-away and eat-in options and offer servings for all kinds of preferences (or allergies): vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and sugar-free.


Our food: healthy, organic, delicious

At The Living we work with organic seasonal produce, meaning that our offer changes once every two weeks. We’d like to describe our kitchen as international; to give you some examples:


Sweets: Vegan ‘cheese’cake, lemon madeleines, raspberry and white chocolate muffins
Breakfast: Homemade granola, soy yoghurt, humus, labne
Saladbar: Beet tabouleh, quinoa and lentiles salad, Waldorf, spelt salad with pumpkin
Lunch: Leek quiche, onion springs carré, pizza
Dinner: Filled portobello, caramelised chicory, pumpkin curry,

You can take a look at today’s menu here (if your Dutch is ok ;) )

Our drinks: hitting the right spot

Our coffees are brewed using direct-trade beans from our local roasters Miss Morrison. Needless to say, they hit the right spot :) Vegans alert: we always offer soy milk options. Our warm drinks in a row: Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte, Chai Latte, Homebrew chai and tea.

Everyday we take the time to press a fresh juice or a smoothie for those looking for a fresh, healthy kick. If you’re more in a mood for a soda however; we have all kinds of organic soda drinks as well.

Pricing: deliciously affordable

Our self-service buffet is based on weight; this way we reduce food waste and you can simply pay for what you eat. No excess, no overpricing.

Buffet: 100 grams = 2,15 euro
Soup: 3,50 euro

To support the hardworking generation that really needs to eat its vegetables, all students get a 10% discount.


The Living is very conveniently located in the centre of the city, near the cinema and the theater.
