Hortus Grand Café is the Hortus’ lunchroom and it allows for a delicious lunch or a cup of coffee both before and after your visit to our gardens. During the summer, you can also sit outside on the adjacent curators terrace.
Until end of April 2019 the cafe is situated in the monumental Orangery. This is a temporary location while the entrance of the Hortus is under construction. The new entrance area including the grand café will be opened in May 2019.
