Great bistro like place with excellent food, fresh and delicious, different from your usual tosti and sandwiches. The staff is very friendly and I love the atmosphere. The area is also nice to discover, with vintage and design shops, thrift shops and small grocery stores.

I had the best carrot cake in my life! Unfortunately the waitress didn't want to tell me the receipt (but I can understand) :) super friendly staff! I will come back!

From 30 November 2016, BijClarence - a popular lunch room - is also open after 5 pm for great tapas and wine. The cook is a great guy, Raffa, from Spain. His food is refined and authentic. He just loves what he does. Couldn't get enough of his 'carne iberico'. A must!! Order a plate for only €20 for 2... More

I've lived in the Piet Heinstraat for about a year, but that was before this cafe was opened. The street has some small shops, not very special ones though and several cafe's, so a street to remember if you for instance stay at the Hilton, Carlton, the hampshire hotel, court garden hotel, or hotel sebel, because it's close.. plenty of...

I love to come here regularly for breakfast or lunch during the weekends with a magazine or book and relax. Great people working there. The owner is a very nice guy who's always up for a chat with his customers. The cakes are homemade and products locally bought. If you're in the neighborhood you should definitely give this a chance.

Perfect place for your morning fix of coffee and croissant (or something else,they have a wide selection of dishes) and morning paper or for lunch with friends. I go there often and have never been disappointed. The spanish baguette with chorizo is made with the real stuff, the soto ajam (indonesian chicken soup) has helped me through a few colds.... More

Great coffee bar and lunch location in a cosy street nearby the city centre of The Hague. Several nice dishes and cakes are available if you are hungry, for work you can use a decent wifi connection.

Warning - this place is not for carnivores :). This neighbourhood cafe is cramped inside but has some outdoor benches in the front of the cafe. The clientèle must be more catered for vegetarians. Portions are huge, coffee is okay. The place offers some health drinks. I did find the place pricey for what it had to offer. It's not... More

We found the place randomly, just walking around Hague. As soon as we saw the facade of the café Clarence were in there at the next moment. Superior cafe quality, nice music, wifi and beatiful girl serving us. Nice spot!!!
