Annie's has a wonderful floating dining room that is obviously a local favorite. We had nice conversations with several folks at nearby tables -- giving us a local perspective and an enjoyable evening.

Fantastic market on Wednesdays and Saturdays which is worth a visit and interesting little shops. The same bus which takes you into Leiden goes to The Hague in the other direction (~30mins) where there is 'city shopping'.
