All times favorites. Oh yes, I have a few of those in The Hague for sure. One of them is De Boterwaag at the Grote Markt. Why? Because it’s a great building!


I would like to take you back to 1650, architect Bartholomeus van Bassen (love that name btw) built the Boterhuis at that time. Within a few years this building became to small, so he built the Boterwaag right next to it in 1681. You can still see the signs with the year on the walls outside. Both buildings were used as a place where people could buy cheese and yes.. butter! Inside the building you can still find one of the old scales they used.


Nowadays the place is a relaxed café, where you can enjoy an (early) lunch, coffee with a piece of pie (try the chocolate one or the hazelnootschuimgebak by Maison Kelder) or diner (the Boterwaagsalade with avocado, Dana Blue cheese, croutons, almonds and bacon is delicious!). They also serve a large range of craft beers.


One more thing, within 35 years, this building is here for 400 (!) years. So yeah, this definitely an all time favorite, not only for me, but for the city itself as well.
