What a place to just and take in everything around you; people catching up and having a drink, listening to the church bells, people watching, and soaking up the sun. The whole family loved the experience.

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!
