Start your day with a cup of coffee and the latest newspaper on our patio. While your children have fun in our playground, you can treat yourself to a delicious lunch. Call your friends over to enjoy some craft beers. And stay for a tasty dinner outside or in our Grand Café

Happy holidays to all! on Dec. 25th & 26th and Jan. 1st we are closed.


Planning a birthday, baby shower, presentation or business lunch in the park? You can book (a part of) Groot Melkhuis, also outside our regular opening hours.


Are you looking for a (side) job and would you like to work at one of Amsterdam’s most iconic locations? We offer a good salary and relaxed working hours. Join our young, tight- knit team of go-getters.

Open every day

Join us for Amsterdamse ‘gezelligheid’. Open every day from 10AM until 8PM. With patios and terraces all around, it’s a great place for a quick coffee and snack or a long, relaxing afternoon with the kids. Also in colder times our Grand Café has got you covered.
Surrounded by green gardens, Groot Melkhuis is the ideal spot to have drinks with friends or catch up with your family. Grown-ups can enjoy a game of jeu de boules. Kids can run wild in our huge outdoor playground with swings and slides, the little ones can play in the sandbox or on our kiddy rides. See you soon?
