Grand Café

Open Tuesday - Sunday 11 A.M. - 5.30 P.M.

The Grand Café is a pleasant place to take a break during your visit to the museum. You can drop in at any time for a cup of coffee, relaxed lunch or a quick snack. The café’s location, facing into the museum’s sheltered courtyard garden, means that in good weather you can sit outside and bask in the sun. But it’s nice inside too! Designer Richard Hutten has set his stamp on the interior of the café with the Berlage Chair he has designed specially for the museum. And the playful lamps, a design classic by the Dane Poul Henningsen, combine perfectly with the chair and relieve the austerity of the space.

Brasserie Berlage


Open Tuesday - Sunday from 10 A.M

When architect H.P. Berlage built the Gemeentemuseum in the 1930s, he also designed a beautiful pavilion to go with it. It was ment to house a 'brasserie' or restaurant where museum visitors could rest and dine.

The pavilion still fulfils its original function. It houses Brasserie Berlage, a comfortable 70 seat restaurant in Art Deco style, with a terrace overlooking the Gemeentemuseum and its sculpture garden.
