We visited this lovely local cafe twice during our short stay in Haarlem. You must try their delicious apple tart and hot chocolate. We also sampled a few of their local beers and bitterballen balls! Service is swift and attentive, depending on weather can people...More

Just goes to show you can't trust TripAdvisor reviews. Over 300 good reviews, mediocre meals for the 4 of us at best. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We came here a few times and loved the interior. Staff really friendly and helpful. Enjoyed Chocomel Chocolate drink on a cold windy day. Beautiful tiles in entrance. Viennese style cafe - you can watch the Pepe walking past outside.

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!
