Went to Brinkmamn for lunch today with a friend. Lovely location,fast and friendly service even if the place was packed. Had a fresh mint tea- the mint was not the freshest but nice enough-and two shrimp croquettes with bread.At 8,70 EUR it definitely wasnt cheap but the building is very nice and you pay for the central location. Food is typical Dutch but there are many options.

We started our day in beautiful Haarlem with breakfast at the Cafe Brinkmann smack dab in the center of the old town at Grote Markt. It couldn't be at a better or more central location. The place has been around for ages (since 1879) and the decor and atmosphere are wonderful. We went for their version of the Dutch uitsmijter. In this case 3 fried eggs and ham topping thick slices of tasty bread. It was marvelous and kept us going for most of the day. The coffee was also excellent and we 'exaggerated' with apple pie and thick whipped cream - a total delight. The young wait staff are very friendly, but could be a bit more attentive. The rest of the menu looked just as inviting as the breakfast and prices are reasonable.
To sum it up this a very good culinary stop in Haarlem. We recommend it and would definitely go again.

Christmas eve, cold, drizzling and a long wait before carols on the square. What better way to warm up than with gluhwein and hot broccoli and blue cheese soup?

No trouble to the friendly staff who served us quickly and with much good humour. Excellent soup, with bits of salmon mixed in (unusual but pleasant) and superb gluhwein with orange slice and cinnamon stick, just as it should be. Bravo Brinkmann!

Grand Café Brinkmann is a nice place to have a lunch or dinner but even just to stop for a coffee or another drink is fine. It's a real Grand Café/Brasserie like they had in former days. A little bit dark inside but that's the way it should be in a café. They have a big terrace when the weather allows you to sit outside direct at the Grote Markt in Haarlem with a view at the church. We stopped there for a lunch. The sandwiches are nice, the hamburger just as big as it should and the croquettes on white bread where they taste the best. Nothing wrong with this place.
