Walking through the city enjoying the sun

The sun was shining this morning and since that’s pretty rare these days I decided to go for a walk through the city. Haarlem has a beautiful church, the saint Bavo, which keeps amazing me every time I walk by it. I walked through some beautiful alleys and little streets.

I walked across Douwe Egberts café when I decided to grab a coffee there. Although I’m usually avoiding Douwe Egberts because I’m more into the smaller coffee cafe’s I was drawn to this one. Not too weird if you take a look at the old building it was in, I fell in love with the windows right away. When I entered the café I was amazed by how awesome it looked from the inside. I ordered a cappuccino and went upstairs to find myself a nice place to sit and have a better look at the stained glass windows.

Whenever you find yourself in Haarlem make sure to visit the Douwe Egberts café (zijlstraat 58) to have a look at the beautiful building they’re in. After finishing the cappuccino I headed back home. I was just inside when it started to rain, lucky me! Glad I had a chance to enjoy some sun today.
