Eating and Drinking

Enjoy a cup of coffee, a piece of cake or a delicious lunch in our restaurant. The terrace with a view of the Museumpark is a must in nice weather. You can also have a coffee, a pastry or a beverage in the Espresso Bar at the front of the museum.

The Pavilion is at the heart of the museum. The light and spacious restaurant was designed in 1991 by Hubert-Jan Henket. Its large windows afford a beautiful view of the museum’s garden and the Museumpark. The basement houses a display of metal household objects throughout the centuries.

There is table service in The Pavilion. The lunch menu includes salads, soups, sandwiches and other delicious light dishes. Much of the produce is sourced locally: the meat is provided by organic butcher De Groene Weg, the fish by Schmidt Zeevis Rotterdam, and the tarts come from the Urban Bakery.
