The place is quite simple. It is just a cafe. We entered around 11, and preparations were made for the night, during which the places serves more like a club. This made the ambiance quite bad. It also had a dirty club smell of old beer. The selection wasn’t that big and it also wasn’t very special. Prices were normal for place like this. The service was also normal, not special but definitely not bad.
Big place at de Grote Markt. It’s got a modern look combined with old-fashioned wooden seats. Bit poshy or touristy atmosphere at times I guess. Service was very friendly, dont know if they have any knowledge about the beers, because I was only looking at her lovely appearance. Some beers on tap, with some local stuff. Quite a lot of trappists from bottle. Decent selection. I was pleasantly surprised, as you wont expect this in such a large place on a popular venue.
Was there on a great summer’s day. The patio is pretty much next to the church which is a great view.
Selection of beers is good too, about 5 or 6 seasonals and a good local link with jopen. Didn’t see too much of the inside but it looks fairly roomy.
On the market in Haarlem this is the best place to have a good beer.
