“A nice stop at Haarlem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

You get the local vibe just by entering Brinkmann in stylish Haarlem. Relaxed, old fashioned, big, woody yet airy (high ceiling). Worths more than one visit just for a coffee, beer or brunch.

“Great location”

Ok coffee, nice place to sit in the sun. A bit out of date somehow. But if the sun is out, this is the bet place :)

“A good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Don't try to find it by its address on the website. It sits on Grote Markt, looking across to a church which is a landmark visible from pretty well everywhere in Haarlem.

It's a fine big lump of property, welcoming and professional, with charming staff. Decent selection of beers. Carpaccio was excellent and the 'black bread' that came with it a revelation - very dark, but light and easy to enjoy (had been expecting something along he lines of pumpernickel). Note that this is the lunchtime carpaccio (€9.50) as distinct from that of the evening, which comes with 'freshly baked bread' and costs €1 more!

Firstly, Haarlem is recommended. And Brinkmann is very well worth a visit.

“Good food, nice service, great ambiance - excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Had lunch here during trip to Amsterdam and the bulb fields (didn't see a single flower after this dreadful long winter!). Into Harleem, cold, wet and windy, so delighted to find a warm welcome and excellent lunch at this elegant cafe/bar/restaurant. Food was delivered promptly and excellent lunch choices included a carpaccio sandwich, burgers and tomato soup. Drinks too came fast and with a smile. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Beautiful place with nice food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

A beautiful restaurant bar built in the 1800s, still in a very good condition. Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Food are reasonably priced and taste quite good. A good place to relax for a sunny afternoon(not always sunny here...)
