We enjoyed our breakfast during our visit to St. Bavo's. The cafe has a nice view of the Church and Grote Markt. I ordered the traditional Dutch breakfast Uitsmijter. It is quite good. Service is pleasant.

Stop by for a beer or complete meat. Everyone fluent in English.Not a big menu, but varied enough to get a burger or local speciality. Friendly, good service in the center of Haarlem.

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!
