Dignita Hoftuin

Our newest café is situated in the pristine gardens of the Hoftuin, behind the Hermitage Museum in the centre of Amsterdam. Escape the hustle & bustle of the inner city by enjoying your breakfast, brunch or lunch on our large sunny terrace or inside our spacious glasshouse style restaurant. Our menu showcases produce grown right in our own vegetable gardens, incorporating edible flowers, fresh herbs and seasonally grown organic produce. We also have a separate children’s corner inside and plenty of room for them to play safely outside so you can enjoy a casual dining experience with your little ones.
