If you are looking for a nice, relaxing and yet charming cobble-stoned square with lots of nice cafes/restaurant while in The Netherlands,..... you have to visit Haarlem Grote Markt. We were there in the afternoon, just enjoying our time, and looking at the old church and its tower. My kids love that Dutch style fries with mayonnaise, or so many different kinds of sauce to choose from. We enjoyed our time there, not crowded with tourists, just a few here and there, mostly locals.
