About Monsieur Rouge


Monsieur Rouge, a petite brasserie at one of the most beautiful spots in Haarlem city center. Located at Spaarne river. 

Monsieur Rouge is small and intimate. We are One of a Kind. No nonsense and very much oriented on our customers. Monsieur Rouge stands for quality. Both in the service as in our products.

There is a relaxed atmosphere, accessible to everyone. And with distinctive style. The decor is contemporary, warm, with a touch of chic. As the name suggests, you can see that french influences are reflected in the interior, in the drinks, our bites  and our breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have an open bar. Come and sit in the kitchen at Monsieur Rouge and enjoy a drink and bite. When you celebrate a party at home, it is always the nicest with the people standing in the kitchen, is our opinion. Now because of Covid 1.5 m rules we only have two seats left in our open kitchen.

Our terrace at the waterline offers a great view at Spaarne river. In the summer you can sit in the sun and watch the boats go by. In wintertime you can sit on the benches under a blanket.

Our French bulldog Sjef is the most perfect host.

Bocca coffee

When founder Menno Simons was traveling in Ethiopia twenty years ago (where he was then still trading in organic sesame seeds), during a walk he came across coffee plants full of ripe red berries. A plan was born ... On the spot he decided to bring this treasure to the Netherlands. He al so wanted to help the farmers with organic labels, and help them to be rewarded for there hard honest work and al so became good friends with them. 

Once back in Amsterdam, he locked himself up in his garage with a small PROBAT burner and started experimenting with his load of Ethiopian coffee beans.


MAMA BAKERY is situated in a light and spacious factory building in Zwanenburg, a village between Haarlem and Amsterdam. When entering you step into an open space where you can see the bakers at work and smell the oven-fresh bread. In six combi steam ovens they bake various types of bread, both sourdough and yeast. They only work with organic stone milled flour without any form of additives or stabilizers. The flour comes from four different Dutch mills. Monsieur Rouge is a fan of the Pecan Coffee and raspberry financiers and the home-made granola.

Stella Artois DRAFT 

At Stella Artois, they are extremely proud of their Belgian roots. The story can be found on every bottle of Stella Artois. If you look carefully on the bottle, some elements of the origin are mentioned with pride.

They find the origin of their brewing traditions back in 1366 in Leuven, where the original Den Hoorn brewery was founded. Den Hoorn, a world-renowned brewing institution, laid the foundation for the quality, taste and standard for which Stella Artois is known today. In honor of this, the emblem symbolizes the Den Hoorn brewery.

Stella Artois was awarded for best international lager in 2019.
