A nice cafe with good food. Unfortunately, when I was feeding my baby the waitress asked me to cover myself and baby up, because there were also people eating... So was my baby! As if we were doing something very inappropriate. Such a shame.

Dear Marloes, Thank you very much for the compliments about our cafe and food! We're very sorry that there was a misunderstanding about what to cover. It was well-meant from the waitress and we'll find it very regrettable and sad that this isn't conceived as meant.. We are used to mama's with babys in our restaurant, so we're also used... More

The 'Hofje zonder zorgen' is very nice, very dutch cafe. The coffee's and cakes we had were super, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere very dutch. Many people were having brunches midmorning which looked very appetising, and it was very busy. The staff were very helpful and attentive, overall a really enjoyable experience.

I visited Hofje Zonder Zorgen last week with my daughter, who has recently re-located to Haarlem with her 4 year old twins and husband, it was my daughter who suggested we had lunch here before I caught my bus to start my journey home. My daughter had the smaller portion of soup served with two small sandwiches and I had... More

The best smoked chicken sandwich ever! And a beautiful view of the hofje. Perfect lunch. Great place for business lunch or even a romantic lunch, it's as good as that!

The grilled vegetable sandwich on brown bread was excellent. Soup of the day was mushroom. That and the tomato soup were great. Locals were celebrating with high tea - baby shower. Great place for girls. The staff and owner were really nice. As a food snob who avoids anything touristy, I rate this a solid 5 for lunch or coffee/cake.... More

I had a standard fresh mint tea and a healthy omelet. The omelet was flavorful and full of the I ingredients but it was definitely overcooked. And, the included bread not only comes under the steaming omelet, but it's that version of lame and flat and airy Dutch bread that no one thinks of when they talk about good bread.... More

Great little cafe overlooking a private Hofje (enclosed garden). Great selection of coffee and cafe-style food.

We first arrived in Haarlem at the beginning of our trip to Europe; fighting jet lag we wandered into this lovely cafe. The food was excellent and very fresh and nicely prepared. The ingredients are organic and local. The owner lady was so kind to us and even got out maps and recommended sites to visit etc A great start... More

We deliberately sought out this place for lunch as it comes up in a search for gluten free food in Haarlem and I am a coeliac. It was a Friday, around lunch-time and it was to our horror when we walked in the door and found it crowded with people apparently waiting for tables. At least it appeared popular. We... More

Just a proper coffeeshop combineren with fresh and good sandwiches. Not too fancy and no reason for visiting Haarlem
