When finally finding this place, we entered a nice traditional English tavern like tea room.
We were welcomed and took a seat next to the window.

We'd reserved a high tea. A large etagere came with scones, sandwiches, cheese cake, sausage roll, quiche, chocolate cake, and some kind of sweet pastry... And... Tea!

It was too much for us, but it tasted sok nice. We enjoyed the time, the place and the food and drinks.

Just walking through Haarlem on a Sunny Saturday we bumped into this nice little gem of tea houses. Why? because the outside with the chair, table and sign was just attractive and irrisistable.
Best is to make a reservation, we had none as we didn't plan it.
Luckely we got a table :-)
Servcie is just good, polite, explain the different tea's and option for bites to go with that.

Just a great place, probably the BEST place to go for a good cup of tea with gigh service and none of that tourist rip off stuff.

The freshly baked scones and cakes are delicious. Also the sandwiches and pies. I realy loved the onion pie. The tea is nice but they also have nice wine. Service is wonderfull. And if you can't finish everything they will give you a box with the cakes you haven't eaten.

We enjoyed the scones which were still warm from the oven. The clotted cream is fresh and delicious. We polished it off with a big pot of Earl Grey. The owner and staff are welcoming and friendly. Pleasant atmosphere in the historic heart of Haarlem, a couple blocks from the main square.
