Food and drink
From regional dishes to pancakes, from sumptuous lunches to light snacks: the atmospheric museum restaurants offer something to suit all tastes.
CaféThe café is situated in the modern entrance pavilion. Here you can start or round off a fascinating day at the Open Air Museum and, with a cup of fresh coffee or whatever takes your fancy from our selection of drinks, enjoy the wonderful view over the central meadow and the Delft windmill.
Kasteelboerderij café and restaurantEstablished in the magnificent manor from Oud Beijerland, this self-service restaurant can seat around 300 visitors. Here, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a cake, an ample lunch or simply a sandwich to keep you going. On sunny days, you can sit out on the pleasant terrace with its glorious view of the Zaan lake.
Hanekamp pancake houseThis hostelry from Zwolle serves delicious pancakes. Children can also amuse themselves in the 1930s playground or explore the exciting Amsterdam maze.
Farmhouse caféIn this farmhouse café from the village of Budel you can still sample the typical Brabant hospitality and atmosphere. The proprietor will serve you old-fashioned drinks such as white beer, orangeade, brandied raisins or coffee with hot milk, and is always ready for a chat.
'Poffertjes' stallOn the edge of the Zaan Square, where young and old alike can play with old-fashioned bicycles, traditional Dutch go-karts or hoops and stilts, stands the 'poffertjes' stall. Here, you can tuck into old Dutch 'poffertjes' (tiny, sweet pancakes), either outside on the terrace or inside.
CafeteriaThe cafeteria offers a quick bite to eat, such as chips and a soft drink. You will find it next to the bleachery/laundry from Overveen (5.1).
