De Salon is a new, stylishly decorated restaurant and bed & breakfast in a beautiful, historic building in the stately Noordeinde area of The Hague. Start your day early at De Salon with a delicious breakfast or the perfect cup of coffee, and at lunchtime enjoy a relaxed lunch. As well as being a restaurant, De Salon is also a B&B. Three well-appointed rooms above the lunchroom offer a perfect base for a weekend in The Hague, right in the centre of the chic shopping area around the royal palace.
Breakfast and lunchroom
Head to De Salon Breakfast & Lunchroom seven days a week for a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner or just coffee and cake at a lovely historic location just around corner from Noordeinde Palace ('Paleis Noordeinde') in the centre of The Hague. The menu has delicious sandwiches, toasties, omelettes, salads, meat and fish dishes, as well as homemade cakes. All dishes are made from fresh, natural products and most are homemade. Why not enjoy high tea in the afternoon, or a glass of wine and nibbles? In the evening try a 'shared dining experience' or a delicious burger and fries. The stunning garden terrace will easily convince you that you are dinging at a French bistro. The spectacular location is also available for events such as birthdays, anniversaries, business drinks or other events. The restaurant regularly organises entertaining activities, such as family brunches on Sundays or Pancake Day.

The historic building in which De Salon is located has a rich, partly royal history. It was built in 1701 by architect Daniel Marot, who designed many palaces in The Hague, including Kneuterdijk Palace. The building's original name was 'Fagel House' ('Huis Fagel') after Francois Fagel, the longstanding clerk of the States General. In 1859, Willem III bought the building and it remained in his possession for thirty years. 'The Fagel Dome' ('koepel van Fagel'), part of the former residence, is nowadays part of the gardens at Noordeinde Palace. De Salon has retained many of the original details, such as the stunning ceiling and mantelpieces.
Noordeinde Lunchroom and B&B is located between Noordeinde and the palace gardens. Noordeinde is one of the best-known shopping areas in the old centre of The Hague. In addition to King Willem-Alexander's working palace, Noordeinde Palace, the chic Noordeinde district is primarily known for its distinctive fashion boutiques, galleries and art and antiques dealers, located in beautiful art nouveau buildings. Jewellers, antique dealers and galleries are interspersed with coffee cafés and restaurants, which makes Noordeinde worth visiting for anyone.
Noordeinde is easy to reach by car, tram and bike. There are plenty of parking opportunities in the vicinity. The nearest parking garages are Noordeinde parking in Heulstraat and Parkstraat parking garage in Oranjestraat. Noordeinde is a fifteen-minute walk from Central Station. A number of trams stop at the Kneuterdijk stop. The rest of The Hague is also easy to reach from Noordeinde.
