Haarlem is a perfect city for a shopping day with friends or for a day out. Plenty of shops, restaurants and museums to be found. So where to eat in Haarlem? With a friend we ate our way around Haarlem and these are 5 restaurants we loved.
De wereld van Jansje
It’s a lunchroom and giftshop in one. They have cute sustainable items in the shop part and delicious homemade food to eat. They employ people with an disability.
I’ve been here twice, once for cake and tea and the other time for lunch. Loved it both times. The food is delicious and I love the ambiance of a lunchroom in a shop. So don’t skip De wereld van Jansje (Jansje.nl) on your shopping trip.
Grote Houtstraat 45
2011 SC Haarlem
We love the burgers on the menu here. It’s a chain invented by Robert Kranenborg, a famous chef from The Netherlands. They serve a variety of burgers and sides. We had lunch here and loved the flavor of the burgers. Next to meat burgers, they’ve also got vegan burgers.
For a good burger go to Thrill Grill.
Oude Groenmarkt 26-28
Indonesian and Surinamese cuisine are served in this restaurant and takeaway place, 2 flavorful and delicious cuisines. Upon entering the restaurant the food is displayed at the counter. You can pick your own dish and either take it home or sit down.
The food was excellent and I will be visiting this place again.
For good, authentic Indonesian and Surinamese food go to Sinar Cinta.

Popocatepetl The Mexican
We had lunch at this place and had delicious food. We could have stayed here all day long. They serve Mexican cuisine. On the menu are dishes like huevos rancheros, Mexican hotdog, nachos, carne asada and enchiladas.
For delicious Mexican food go to Popocatepetl.

This is such a fun and cosy place to sit down and have a drink. Preferably with something sweet. Bij Babette is a tearoom. They have numerous options in flavors for tea and serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.
We had tea and cake on the side here. Bij Babette has delicious cake and a good ambiance.
