Lunch with children in Haarlem

Teahouse the Haarlemmerhout

The Haarlemmerhout, also known as The Wood, is the oldest urban forest in the Netherlands. The park is a fun place to go with children. Especially since it has a petting zoo. After your afternoon of walking, playing and watching goats and deer, it is nice to go to the cozy teahouse in the city park. The menu at the teahouse definitely takes children into account. In fact, it features pancakes, poffertjes and sandwiches. A peanut butter or chocolate chip sandwich are also available at the tea house. The place is fun for young and old alike!

The teahouse is open every day from 9:30 am - 5 pm.

Pancakes. What kid doesn't love them? And are the kids already familiar with crepes; the brother of the pancake? In the Kruisstraat you will find Crepe Affaire.
