Overveen, a lovely village just eight minutes by bike from Haarlem’s city center, has a new hotspot, House of Borski.

Formally known as ‘Het Koffiehuisje’, the space has been completely made over to the delight of locals and new visitors.

Vibrant, ‘gezellig’ atmosphere

When you enter the doors of House of Borski, you are transported in the decadence and vibrance of the roaring twenties.

Every detail, from the furniture to the jazz music playing in the background to the luxurious colours on the wall – even the light fixtures – make you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time and are sitting in a Parisian bistro in the 1920s.

Drinks, bites and dinner

House of Borski offers drinks, bites and dinner.

The  cuisine varies from French to Italian classics. Think Boeuff Bourguignon, SpaghettiAragosta, Panna Cotta and Tiramisu amongst others. The menu shows cases classically delicious food.

Tip: Try the beef or lobster croquettes. It’s Hello Haarlem’s favourite. And, in the summertime, a glass of Rosé goes well with just about anything on the menu.
