Cute and yummy

Often busy, but well worth it. Nice sandwiches and everything. Good location for shoppers. Bit crowded sometimes, with the kitchen in the middle of the 2 rooms. Lovely pies!

We ate here one morning instead of our hotel and didn't regret it. Lovely fresh food, juice and coffee with friendly, smiling service. Terrific and we would use again if in Haarlem.

Originally tiny houses in closed squares for unmarried " spinsters or poor widows. Now very thought after. Haarlem has even a special "Hofjes" tour !!

Situated in a beautiful "hof" courtyard, this local "institution was a MUST visit today for me. The menu is quite good (I had an omelet - why must they all put it onto of warm bread??) the house banana bread (excellent!) and my companion had and loved the quiche (good but more of a pastry than French). Good wine choices... More

We were in need of some goodness after a heavy couple of days in Amsterdam and took a short train ride into Haarlem to eat at this gem of a cafe. We had a delicious lunch with soup/sandwiches and feel good smoothies which were all served up in their beautiful dining room. Great value for money too

Hofje Zonder Zorgen does good, honest food at reasonable prices in a cosy, no nonsense atmosphere. The whole package makes it almost too easy to wile away a whole morning or afternoon on your laptop, munching on banana bread and nursing a latte. Excellent alternative to your living room - that kind of place. Good to know at least one... More

As we ordered our drinks the waitress asked if we would like to see the menu. When she arrived with our drinks we would... More
