We stopped here to rest and have something to drink. It was great people watching as you have a great view of the main square and the church. People were friendly. The inside is very beautiful.

After a day of seeing the Grote Kerk and the ten Boom museum, we chose to dine in Haarlem before returning to Amsterdam. Service was professional and courteous, and the food was most agreeable. We recommend !!

I come here quite often and I can't get tired of its beauty. They have a good selection of beers from the tap and the staff is friendly. If you are up for a bite, food is also good.

I've visited a few times and never been disappointed. The staff are super friendly, inside the bar is beautiful and sitting outside you get a great spot in the Grote Markt. Would highly recommend 😁

What restaurent would you recommend in Harleem, not too expensive with good service? Preferrably between the Ten Boom House and the Centrum/Verwulft bus station as I will be on foot. Thanks! Any traditional Dutch food to recommend?

We only had 2 evenings in Haarlem, so didn't get chance to try out many places. We particularly enjoyed the Cafe Brinkmann though, for food quality, service and atmosphere. You'll have a fab time!
